Halfords Yuasa Racing has today unveiled the new livery design for its 2020 British Touring Car Championship Honda Civic Type R at the team’s headquarters in Droitwich, UK.
The orange and black FK8 Type R will be driven by Honda drivers Dan Cammish and Matt Neal, who – after enjoying a competitive 2019 season – are looking to win the championship in 2020. Cammish took two race wins last year and came within one lap of winning the drivers’ title in the final race of last season.
Neal said, “My season hasn’t started off in the best of sorts with my shunt earlier in the year, but I’ve been progressing well. I jumped in this season’s Honda Civic Type R last week for the first time and managed to put a significant number of laps under my belt.”
Pre-season testing was put on hold for a few days when Neal suffered a mountain-bike accident and was hospitalized. During his recovery, Gordon Shedden, who over eight seasons with Honda secured three BTCC titles, stepped in to carry out testing and development mileage.
Dave Hodgetts, Honda UK managing director, added, “I know that the team has worked very hard over the winter to ensure the latest evolution of the Honda Civic Type R goes as well as it looks. With our talented duo of Matt Neal and Dan Cammish at the wheel, and Dan having come so close to the title last season, we are optimistic of another excellent season in the BTCC.”
