"Touring car racing remains one of the world’s most popular forms of road racing, combining approachable front-wheel drive cars with some of the most legendary circuits on the planet. The result is an aggressive, elbows-out form of road racing that proves to be just as much fun for the drivers behind the wheel as it is to watch for the fans in the seats.The Honda Civic Type R made its debut in 2018, and earned back-to-back Model of the Year awards on a global stage in 2019 and 2020. Boasting the same four-cylinder turbocharged engine as the roadgoing Civic Type R, the racing version puts out 340 horsepower. Campaigned around the world by various teams, North American fans may best recognize the Civic Type R for running the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge with teams like LA Honda World Racing and Atlanta Speedwerks."
