Hyundai Motorsport and OMP Racing signed a multi-year partnership agreement, which is starting with the 2021 FIA World Rally Championship.
The agreement between the holder of the WRC Manufacturers’ title and the Italian company leader in the market of motorsport safety devices provides for the supplying of the complete fire-retardant racewear for all the Hyundai Motorsport WRC and WRC2 crews, as well as the supplying of seats and safety harnesses for all the team’s Hyundai i20 Coupe WRC cars.
Paolo Delprato, OMP President and CEO: “With this partnership, OMP group enormously consolidates its presence in the World Rally Championship, a top competition followed and loved by millions of motorsport enthusiasts. Hyundai Motorsport works very hard with winning attitude and meticulous attention to detail, and this is something we share with them and strongly appreciate”.
Andrea Adamo, Hyundai Motorsport Team Principal: “We are happy to have OMP Racing on-board as our partner for the 2021 season. We have opted to streamline different supplies in the hands of a trusted brand like OMP which will provide us with race gear for our WRC and WRC2 crews as well as safety equipment for our Hyundai i20 Coupe WRC cars. This gives us guarantees of consistency in brand appearance and quality across the products. We use WRC as the main platform for the time being but we are happy that we will extend our partnership with OMP Racing to our Customer Racing Department. This will give the possibility to our loyal customers – in both rallying and circuit racing - to cooperate with OMP and have special offers and products designed for them in Hyundai Motorsport style and colours. This will allow our customers to have an even closer link with our team and the feeling of a single team working and pushing together towards the same goals.”
