Just learned about Korean V8 SuperRace...
|Apparently, there is an Asian variant of Australias "V8 Supercars", using both First Generation (BH) and Second Generation (DH) Geneses Sedan race cars, and, more recently, Cadillac ATS Sedans. (photo link)|
|Sponsored by Hello Mobile, these cars all run a variant of the Hyundai V8. This BH Genesis seems to, like most racing cars, have little in common with the Genesis cars we see come into our dealership. (Photo Link)|
|There isn't much information online about the series. No specs on the cars, no driver information, and little video footage.|
|I didn't even know it existed until I found a video of this crash, nestled in the middle of a Touring Car Crash Compilation video last night. I'll have to go through the list of crash videos I watched to find the exact clip, but I think I could find it. As you can see, this is from the same race, or close to it, that is in the first picture. I found this picture by searching "Kim Jin-Pyo Crash", as it was a photo tag on google for one of the images. Not sure which car was piloted by Kim Jin-Pyo, but my guess is, it's the car flying out of frame. (photo credit)|
|It appears that they've switched from the Hyundai models over to some awesome-looking Cadillac ATS-V Coupes. (Photo Credit)|
|According to the translated web page, these cars are running a 6.2L V8 making about 450hp. Seems like a fun series to watch. I'd just like to learn a bit more about it.|
Anyway, if you have more information on this series, please, let me know.
