Created due to high demand for JAS racing cars and effective customer in the region, JAS Motorsport Asia has effectively supported championship-challenging campaigns with a variety of independent and manufacturer-supported Honda Civic touring cars and is set to continue doing so for many years to come.
Beyond its engineering and manufacturing activities, J.A.S. Motorsport has also built its reputation on racing circuits and rally stages, recording dozens of victories in professional touring car championships throughout Europe (ITC, BTCC, STC, ETCC, STW, WTCC, CTCC, TCR).

Our Racing History
JAS Motorsport has been active in racing since 1996 and was soon chosen by Honda as a partner to support their customers with their motorsport activities. From 2012-2017, J.A.S developed – in partnership with Honda R&D – the Civic 5-door for its FIA World Touring Car Championship programme.
The company activities continued to grow within the China Touring Car Championship and the global TCR formula; JAS-built Civics winning 17 major titles since 2015, and in GT racing with the NSX GT3 Evo – which J.A.S are responsible for assembling and providing sales and customer support in most territories globally – having claimed eight crowns.
