Honda gets World Touring Car weight increase after Slovakia win

Gabriele Tarquini, Honda, Slovakia 2013Honda's three World Touring Car Civics will be 30kg heavier at the forthcoming Hungarian round this weekend.

The Japanese marque's cars have earned extra ballast following a run of consecutive pole positions and a podium sweep in Slovakia.

All seven SEAT Leons - run by Munnich, Campos, Special Tuning and Tuenti - will meanwhile compete with an extra 10kg of ballast.

Qualifying and performance in the first six races of the season are used to calculate the series' weightings.

The Civics are now just 10kg lighter than the Chevrolet Cruzes, which are running at maximum weight.

Lada's two factory Grantas and the seven BMW 320s will continue to enjoy a 20kg weight break.

Tom Coronel claimed BMW's first victory of the season in the reverse-grid second race at Slovakia.
