The Honda Civic Type R TCR made its competition debut in 2018. It is the second model to be built to TCR regulations by Honda’s long-term motorsport partner JAS Motorsport, and is the reigning holder of TCR’s prestigious ‘Model of the Year’ title, having won the award in 2019 and 2020
The Honda Civic Type R TCR, which is based on the FK7 version of the market-leading hatchback, is the same specification as when first introduced in 2018. Its five-door wide body is reinforced by an MSA-Certified welded roll cage.
It has the same four-cylinder turbocharged engine as used in its roadgoing counterpart, in line with TCR technical regulations, and utilises a six-speed sequential gearbox with paddle shift. TCR rules permit only the use of a TCR ECU from Magnetti Marelli.
The suspension comprises a McPherson strut at the front and a multi-link axle at the rear. The front brake system features 380mm steel-vented discs, while 260mm steel discs are used at the rear.
