A transition season for Jean-Karl Vernay who only competes in the FIA ETCR championship. It was a difficult year, with a Hyundai Veloster N ETCR in constant progress but which remained behind the competition and a driver not really helped by luck. Despite some good races, JK Vernay had to be satisfied with 8th place in the final race.

His 2nd place in the 24 Hours of N├╝rburgring with the Hyundai i30 N in the TCR category was the highlight of the year.
