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.
Hyundai earned an overall score of 380 points, edging out defending champion Toyota by 18 points, followed by Citroën and Ford.
