We may be waiting for Honda to fully reveal the European market 2012 Civic hatchback, but the Japanese automaker announced today that the five-door model will compete in the 2012 British Touring Car Championship.
Team Dynamics, which has been a long time Honda partner, will prepare two fully works cars based on the new Civic with which it hopes to repeat 2010’s success of winning both the drivers’ and manufacturers’ titles.
“We are delighted to enter the new Civic in next year’s BTCC and hope to build on the success we’ve had with the current model”, said managing director of Honda UK, Dave Hodgetts. “We’ve made significant improvements to the new road car, and we’re confident they will make for a competitive car too.”
Honda also released the first in a line of four videos called “What Drives a Racing Team”. The video, which you can watch after the jump, shows the way the racing team works during the season.
