Honda launches 2022 Civic Si production racer

LinkedIn +

Honda Performance Development (HPD) in the USA is set to debut a prototype of a new turnkey, race-ready version of the all-new 2022 Honda Civic Si, which features a turbocharged engine and 6-speed manual transmission.

Created, developed and tested in-house by HPD engineers, the car draws upon HPD’s extensive production car and race vehicle engineering experience, including the development of the 10th-generation HPD Civic Si TCA race car program.

Built from a body-in-white for SRO TC Americas, amateur touring car series, club racing and dedicated track day use, the race car foregoes a sunroof, sound proofing insulation and underbody coating and seam sealer to reduce weight, and is then modified for racing using a selection of HPD and other performance and safety components.

The Civic will make its debut at the SEMA show in Las Vegas early next month.
