Honda Type R nominated
The World Car of the Year jury has voted Honda's Civic Type R as a finalist in the "World Performance Car of the Year". The nomination is the latest good news in a successful year for Honda's 'race car for the road'. The car hit overseas showrooms September last year and secured its first motorsport titles taking the drivers and constructors championship in the British Touring Car Championship. The two French publications “Echappement” as well as “L'automobile Sportive” declared Civic Type R sports car of the year, with the latter being decided by readers themselves.
