9G BTCC Honda Civic unveiled

The new 9G Civic touring car was unveiled today.

Chatting to the team members, they all seem to be quite excited about this season (I guess they have every reason to be after their total clean sweep last year). The new rules for this year mean that the cars should all be a lot more evenly paced, with common critical parts in all the cars. But the Honda Racing team were confident that they will be able to use their experience to edge ahead of the others....

Here are some snaps of the event:

Great Pics Pottsy thanks for posting.

That section of front bumper below the grill looks so much better colour coded, should be like that on all the 9G cars.

Very nice, I hope this also means Honda will be using Yuasa batteries for the civic again.

I would like to see a road version of this with similar styling and a 250bhp+ turbo engine. That would persuad me to stay loyal to the brand when I decide to change in a few years.

Great pics there and thanks for sharing!

I'd like to see side by side comparisons to the stock car just for a styling perspective.

Let's face it that is what we all would prefer to drive compared to its cheaper ugly sister.

The colour doing at the front would be a must for me if I upgraded to a 9G.

Also where are the exhaust outlets on the stock compared to the BTCC's invisible ones?

I like invisible ones...!!! Or do I like my triangular ones!??!

I don't like change.

That would make a great Type R with the exception of the spoiler and side exiting exhausts.

More pictures here without the advertising, may give an idea what the next CW CTR could look like.
