Developed and built in 2012 by JAS Motorsport, the Civic WTCC has undergone a continued period of development ever since, in accordance with the championship’s permitted three homologation changes each year.
The largest change came for the 2014 season with the WTCC regulation revisions from Super2000 to TC1 specification requiring an extensive redevelopment of the car after only one full season of competition.
The 2017 Civic WTCC machine features a number of improvements across the car in addition to those made in 2016. Consequently, the 2017 car will be the most competitive yet.
