Honda Racing UK already working on NGTC-spec Civic



Of all the new debuts scheduled for the Frankfurt Motor Show now less than two weeks away few will proliferate quite like the new European-market Honda Civic. The Old World version of the new Civic has so far only been teased, but the company's UK competition division has already started work on the racing version that will take on the most famous circuits Great Britain has to offer.

The competition version of the new Euro Civic is being built according to the new NGTC rules employed by the British Touring Car Championship, and is currently undergoing development in conjunction with Team Dynamics. The outfit fields the old Civic, which was introduced to the BTCC back in 2007, with considerable success: the team has collected a slew of titles in the series, including the teams' and manufacturers' championships last season, and is currently sitting second and third in the current standings.

Expect the new racer to be unveiled sometime after the road car makes its debut in Frankfurt. In the meantime, Honda has released the first of a four-part video series highlighting its BTCC effort.

Is this something they're thinking for the 2013 model year 40th anniversary?

Speaking of BTCC, it really died for me in 2000. The newer regulations, rules and uglier cars killed it !

Watched a few WTCC races a couple weeks ago. Was quite entertaining. Cars are evenly matched and there was a good amount of "vehicle contact"...lol. The Chevy Cruise's are doing well.

Would watch more WTCC and BTCC races if speed channel would show them instead of all that boring NASCAR garbage...
