Honda Fans Invited to Nurburgring to Celebrate New Civic Type-R

If you’re a true Honda fan then we could be about to tell you something that will have you searching for flights to Germany before we can say “Civic Type-R”.

Honda recently announced that they would be offering the ‘Type-R Experience’. A 3-day event that will allow Honda, and more specifically Type-R, enthusiasts to get up close and personal with the latest incarnation of their favourite car in Germany.

And where better to hold this special event than none other than the infamous Nurburgring! A track that not only inspires fear in drivers who wish to conquer it, but also a circuit that the new Honda Civic Type-R is very, very familiar with.

That’s because the hot hatch is the current holder of the famed circuit’s front-wheel-drive lap record. An accolade it earned only last year, but which only came to light this year. The Civic’s new record? A blistering 7 minutes 50.63 seconds, which is a full four seconds quicker than the Renault Megane Trophy-R.

May 17th, also boasts a tour of the Castrol Honda Garage and a VIP pass to the a highly significant race as it will be the first time ever that the Nurburgring has hosted an FIA World Touring Car Championship race. Visitors will also be treated to food and drink throughout the weekend, as well as camping accommodation in a souvenir tent.

As if all this wasn’t enough, attendees will also get the opportunity to thrash a Civic Type-R around the legendary Nurburgring in a once-in-a-lifetime motoring experience. The only catch, however, is that you have to supply your own Civic Type-R…

You can find out more about the Type-R Experience and register for the event by visiting the official website. You’d better hurry though as registration ends on April 17th and it’s still unknown whether this event will be repeated in the future.
