Honda Racing 2012 BTCC Drivers Confirmed
Dave Hodgetts, Managing Director of Honda (UK) expressed his excitement over the news, which is excellent for everyone associated with Honda Racing and Team Dynamics, the car maker’s long-standing BTCC partner.
“Both Matt and Gordon have been fantastic ambassadors for Honda during this season and we are delighted to have them racing for us in 2012. They will be behind the wheel of a race-prepared version of the new Honda Civic and we believe that will give us outstanding opportunities to further add to Honda’s already-bulging trophy cabinet. We’ve still got a job to finish this year, though,” Hodgetts continued.
Gordon, who is currently number one in the BTCC drivers’ standings, said he was delighted that a deal had been done for next season. “It gives strong sense of continuity and stability to the team and that’s a very real benefit over some of our rivals,” he said.
“It’s so much more than just being on the track. It’s about the passion and the desire for excellence that flows within the brand. Development work on the new car is well-advanced and we’re excited about its chances,” added Matt, who is a single point behind his team mate.
