JAS Motorsport offers prize TCR test for UK Civic Cup Champion
JAS Motorsport, celebrating a quarter of a century as a Honda Racing partner, is proud to announce an incredible prize for the champion of the 2023 Milltek Sport Civic Cup.
This year's title winner will be awarded a test drive in Italy in the world's newest global touring car, the JAS-designed and built Honda Civic Type R TCR FL5, at the end of the current season.
The opportunity is designed to give the champion an opportunity to showcase their talent in a vehicle that represents Honda at the top level of touring car racing and that builds on the 75 titles and more than 400 wins of the FK2 and FK7 Civic Type R TCRs.
The winner will be invited to spend two days with JAS Motorsport in Italy during the winter of 2023-24.
Day One will involve a visit to the organisation's Arluno headquarters in Milan with a tour of the Civic Type R TCR production facility followed by a half-day in JAS's state-of-the-art race simulator.
The second day will be spent on track with a day of running behind the wheel of the Civic Type R TCR FL5, which finished on the podium finish on its global debut in April courtesy of Restart Racing's Chris Smiley at the TCR UK season-opener.
Mads Fischer, JAS Motorsport TCR Project Leader, said: "I saw the Civic Cup first-hand when I attended the TCR UK opening round at Snetterton and was really impressed with what I saw both in terms of the number of cars and the quality of the racing. It's exactly the kind of place where the next stars of touring car racing will begin to stand out. As builders of the Honda Civic Type R TCR, we have the unique opportunity to introduce the champion to the most advanced and highest-performance Civic touring car anywhere in the world to show them that they can move up the racing ladder with Honda."
Stewart Lines, Championship Promoter for the Milltek Sport Civic Cup, said: "This is a fantastic gesture of support from JAS Motorsport. It gives the Milltek Sport Civic Cup such a boost for this season. This prize provides the 2023 champion with the opportunity to test the brand-new JAS-designed and built Honda Civic Type R TCR FL5, which confirms the Civic Cup';s place as an official feeder Series to TCR UK. I look forward to seeing who is crowned as the 2023 Milltek Sport Civic Cup Champion."
