Matt Neal says new BTCC Honda Civic Tourer needs work

Neal says new Honda needs work

British Touring Car star Matt Neal believes there is work to do to get the new Honda Civic Tourer up to speed for 2014.

The works Honda team has switched from the successful hatchback to the new estate model for this season and Neal tested it at a wet Rockingham last month.

"In the wet it's about 0.7s off the old hatchback," the triple champion told AUTOSPORT.

"It's got a few niggly bits with it so we're working on it."

With much of the new car sharing the same parts as the hatchback, which privateer squad Eurotech will continue to run in 2014, the issue has been the new bodywork.

"We're just trying to get it set-up with the different weight distribution and centre of gravity," added Neal.

"It's not there yet, but we're working on it."

Neal is also expecting to undergo further surgery to his hand as he continues to recover from his martial arts accident last September.
