Launched last year at the Frankfurt Motor Show in Germany, the latest shape Civic – built by preparation specialist Team Dynamics to the BTCC’s turbocharged Next Generation Touring Car regulations – is due to make its public debut later today in a test at the Brands Hatch circuit in Kent.
Reigning Drivers’ Champion Matt Neal and team-mate Gordon Shedden, runner-up in the table in 2011, are both expected to get a run in the car. Together they racked up no fewer than 13 race wins last season as Honda/Dynamics and Honda Racing also swept to the BTCC’s Manufacturer/Constructor and HiQ Teams trophies.
In addition to the factory-entered Civics of Neal and Shedden, Dynamics has built a further two cars for independent squad Pirtek Racing’s drivers Andrew Jordan and Jeff Smith for use in this year’s championship.
She's a beaut!
