For the first time in 18 years, the British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) will be returning to Oulton Park this weekend (June 7th and 8th). So Honda Yuasa Racing is getting ready for the new challenge that their Civic Tourers will face.
Honda will be unveiling a new concept model of its ever popular hatchback the Civic Type-R as well as its hybrid supercar the NSX at the upcoming Goodwood Festival of Speed.
The two cars will be making their UK debut at the festival running from June 26th to 29th, whetting the appetites of speed fans for the release of these cars in 2015.
Firstly, whoever thought of the name needs an award! This weekend saw Brighton seafront play host to the 4th InCarNation show, presented by a collaboration between SlammedUK and the Ace Cafe.
News arrived today that Toyota are set to recall 6.4 million vehicles globally. This includes 35,124 UK vehicles, though reportedly Toyota originally had the figure at nearer 50,000 which Toyota say will be updated, (at the time of writing the page required on the official website was unavailable).
In the UK, this current recall affects the RAV4, Yaris and Urban Cruiser and addresses five separate issues; problems with the steering column bracket (760,000 vehicles worldwide), seat rails (2.3 million), airbags (3.5 million), windscreen wiper motors (160,000) and an engine starter mechanical issue involving the motor relay.
When it comes to speed, Honda has proved its latest creation can really cut it. The grass that is.
