WTCC Castrol Civics - great race results
1st round of the 2013 WTCC from Monza today.
Factory backed Castrol Civics had a great official debut today with Italian legend Gabriele Tarquini bringing home his 9th Gen Civic in Honda's first WTCC podium finish in 3rd place. In torrential rain Tarquini started race 2 from row 3 and made a blistering start to drive through the field to 2nd place by the end of lap 1 and finished in 3rd place overall. Race 1 saw a very solid 4th place.
9th Gen looks great in full factory Castrol livery and with touring car legend Tarquini heading the driver lineup Honda's program has got off to a flying start.
UK TV viewers can watch WTCC races live and see a highlights package on Britsh Eurosport channel.
The BTCC Civics commence their defence of their 2012 title next weekend at Brands Hatch.
Bring it on
