Honda's 2014 Civic WTCC Car Shines During First Test

Honda's 2014 Civic WTCC Car Shines During First Test

7 February 2014

 

Honda has released images of its 2014 Civic WTCC works car, taken during its first test session in Aragon, Northern Spain earlier this year.

The design of the new look Civic WTCC, which was unveiled in December last year, reflects the latest technical regulations for the FIA WTCC and shows the subtle style of the wheel arch extensions, larger diameter wheels, sleeker aero package and extended rear spoiler.

At Honda’s annual motorsport press conference, held in Tokyo today, Takanobu Ito, President & CEO of Honda Motor Co. Ltd, also outlined Honda’s ambitions in the Championship this year. He said:

“We achieved four victories and captured the manufacturer’s title last season in the FIA World Touring Car Championship, the WTCC, which was our first year of full-participation. In this season, we will strive to win the double title for driver’s and manufacturer’s with a total of four machines including a works team and two private teams.”

Under the banner of the “Castrol Honda World Touring Car Team”, Honda will enter two works cars in 2014, driven by Gabriele Tarquini and Tiago Monteiro and run by J.A.S. Motorsport. Private outfits Zeng? Motorsport and Proteam Racing will also compete for honours with two further Civics, driven by Hungary’s Norbert Michelisz and Moroccan Mehdi Bennani respectively.
