Default Honda Civic Tourer BTCC unleashed




Quote:
Honda Yuasa Racing has revealed its 2014 BTCC contender in the form of a Civic Tourer.

What we have here is the first estate car to be used in the British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) since Tom Walkinshaw Racing used a couple of Volvo 850s in the 1994 season. Belonging to Honda Yuasa Racing, it will be the only estate car on the 2014 grid.

Under the hood of the BTCC-spec Civic Tourer will be a newly developed 4-cylinder, 2.0-liter turbo engine built by Neil Brown. The motor is estimated to produce more than 300 HP (221 kW), while a more docile version is expected in the highly anticipated Civic Type R due in 2015 already confirmed with at least 280 HP (206 kW).

It won't be the only Civic on next year's BTCC grid as Eurotech Racing plans on using the hatchback variant that was developed for the 2012 season and managed to grab the last two drives' titles for Gordon Shedden and Andrew Jordan.

Next year's BTCC season will start on March 30 at Brands Hatch when Gordon Shedden and Matt Neal will race this Honda Civic Tourer.
