JAS Motorsport to introduce new Honda Civic Type R TCR in 2018

13 July 2017

JAS Motorsport is set to introduce the all-new Honda Civic Type R TCR to the touring car world for the 2018 motorsport season.

The new car, which is based on the all-new 2017 road car, builds on the success achieved by its predecessor since it debuted in TCR competition in 2015.

Key features of the new racer include a brand-new exterior design and aerodynamic package to cut drag and improve downforce, an all-new multilink rear suspension and anti-rollbar system, an advanced Electronic Control Unit (ECU) and an improved rollcage that features the very latest FIA lifting device.

An ‘endurance’ version is also available for customers planning to contest championships such as the VLN and 24h Series. This version features additional lighting, driver cooling and anti-lock braking.

The new Civic Type R TCR, which will join the current list of 19 models and 300-plus cars eligible for TCR competition globally, continues the long and successful partnership between Honda and JAS Motorsport that began in 1998.

‘The new car shows significant development in several key areas such as aerodynamics, suspension and electronics,’ said Mads Fischer, JAS Motorsport TCR project leader.

‘Our first Civic Type R TCR car has won five championships already and is in contention for another eight this year in Europe and Asia, and our aim is to ensure that the new car continues to raise the bar for TCR competition globally,’ he added.
