After ending its partnership with manufacturer Hyundai at the finish of the 2012 racing season, Rhys Millen Racing has announced that it will be putting its two Global Rallycross Championship-spec Hyundai Velosters up for sale on January 1.

The two cars have competed in the past two seasons’ worth of GRC competition, and have seen Millen, Stephan Verdier, Marcus Dodd, and Robbie Maddison behind the wheel. Millen finished third and fourth in the past two GRC championships in the primary car, while Verdier took the second car to sixth in points after joining the team this year.

The two RMR-prepared Hyundais made 11 combined starts this season, making nine main event appearances and scoring two podiums in the season opener at Charlotte and season finale at SEMA. Those results were good enough for second in the manufacturers’ championship, beating Subaru for the position by 19 points despite running two cars compared to Subaru’s three.

RMR is also offering a 2001 World Rally Championship-spec Hyundai Accent that had been purchased for rallycross spares.
