HONDA UNVEILS CIVIC’S WTCC LIVERY IN GENEVA
Honda unveiled today the livery of its WTCC racing during the press conference that took place at Geneva’s Salon International de l’Automobile.
Just like last year, the Civic WTCC sports the colours of the Castrol Honda World Touring Car Team, however the 2014 car has a much sexier look thanks to the new TC1 technical regulations that have been adopted by the championship.
Honda factory drivers Gabriele Tarquini and Tiago Monteiro were called on the stage and posed for pictures alongside their racing car.
Philip Ross, Vice President Honda Motor Europe said: “With the new cars the WTCC will be a fast-paced and fiercely competitive championship. And our goal is to fight for both the Drivers’ and Manufacturers’ titles.”
Donald Smith, Castrol's Global Sponsorship Manager, commenting on the new Civic WTCC said: "We are delighted to extend our partnership with Honda, after a first successful season. For us, there is something special about the coming together of two brands with such rich and successful racing pedigrees. The new livery looks absolutely fantastic, with Castrol and Honda once again sharing the red and the white!"
