Well, that didn't take long. Fresh off of its debut at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show less than three weeks ago, Honda's new Civic Type R (CTR) looks to be headed to the racing circuit next, at least in the UK. That's where Team Dynamics revealed it's building one of the new hot hatches for Honda Yuasa Racing to campaign in the 2015 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) season.

Working with Honda UK manufacturing in Swindon, the 2016 CTR has been designed and built from the ground up in Team Dynamics' workshops in Pershore. Based on the production version of the new Civic Type R, which is due to hit European showrooms in July, Honda Yuasa Racing started designing the car last September, with the build starting in November.

Engineers are targeting 350 horsepower and 295 lb.-ft. of torque for this race version of the new CTR. By building on the existing road car, the team has produced a racer with increased down force compared to last year's Tourer, less drag and more effective airflow management.

The Honda Yuasa Racing Civic Type R is set to be officially unveiled at the BTCC media day at Donington Park on March 24. To keep up with the build and team, follow along via the Team Dynamics and Honda Yuasa Racing Facebook pages.
