Honda Yuasa Racing has left it late to reveal the car it will campaign in the British Touring Car Championship this year. This is it, the new Honda Civic Type R. Honda ran the unique Civic Tourer last year, which quickly became the most successful estate in BTCC history (only Volvo had raced one before), but the team endured a disappointing. British Touring Car Championship race winner Jake Hill has signed to drive an AmD Tuning-run Honda Civic FK2 in next year's race contest. The year-old Hill took part in his third full season. Jan 03, · Def these were the pinnacle of BTCC tech, but the early 90’s for me was the best I remember seeing an article on a the Nissan primera btcc car of the same era and I think only the roof bonnet and boot were from the original car or at least the same size the rest was custom made.

It would be more interesting to see to what extent manufacturers road going cars can be tuned to. Then all the racing tech might filter down to road cars improving the breed. I remember when this was exactly the case with Honda cars. Ofir 1 January Nice comparison.
