Adamo exits Hyundai with immediate effect, Noh named as the new team principal

Hyundai Motorsport announced today that Andrea Adamo will be no more the team principal and announced Scott Noh as the new team principal for the next season.

Adamo joined Hyundai in 2015 when he was the boss at the company's Customer Racing department and he took over duties in the WRC team of Hyundai at the start of 2019 as Michel Nandan left from the team principal position.

The Korean squad clinched two manufacturer's titles in 2019 and in 2020 when Adamo had been its team principal, but the 2021 season was a disaster for the team due to car reliability issues. 

Therefore, Hyundai Motrosport will head to the next season with a new team principal which will be Scott Noh, the president of the company.

"It is time for me to reflect on a relentless and successful period in my career, one full of high points, happy memories, and titles", Adamo said.

"I am proud of what we have achieved from building an enviable Customer Racing department to our consecutive titles in World Touring Car Cup and WRC. 

"I wish the organization well for its future".

From his side, Scott Noh stated: "I would like to thank Andrea for his significant contribution over six years which has seen us secure important titles in WRC and WTCR. 

"We can reflect on some very positive moments together and I sincerely wish him all the best for the future.

"Our operations will continue to run as scheduled ahead of the 2022 season, which starts with Rallye Monte-Carlo next month".
