Hyundai has won its maiden World Rally Championship -- one of the world's biggest motor racing events, along with Formula One -- more than two decades after organizing its auto racing team.
The WRC, a rallying series organized by the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA) consists of more than a dozen rallies driven on surfaces ranging from gravel and tarmac to snow and ice, unlike F1 events which take place on circuits.
