Civic to represent Honda in BTCC 2012

Honda has confirmed that a race-prepared version of its new-look Civic hot hatch will be used in next year's British Touring Car Championship (BTCC).

As ever, Team Dynamics will be behind the souped-up motor and it is hoped that the partnership will be able to recreate the success of the 2010 season, when Honda was victorious n the team and manufacturer titles.

Honda Racing Team driver Matt Neal revealed he is looking forward to getting behind the wheel of the updated Civic.

"We are all looking forward to 2012, and from my point of view it is very exciting to have the prospect of driving the new Honda Civic," he commented.

"The team's development of the car is already well underway, and the new Civic will fit the BTCC's 'Next Generation Touring Car' regulations. I'm sure it will keep Honda at the front, and in the winner's circle, both off and on track."

Neal recently said he is willing to drive through the pain barrier as he bids for glory after breaking a bone in his hand.
