Honda planning World Touring Car entry with Team Dynamics for 2013

Gordon Shedden Matt Neal Honda BTCC Thruxton 2011

Honda could soon return to World Touring Car Championship action with the Team Dynamics squad that runs the company's British Touring Car programme, this week's AUTOSPORT magazine can reveal.

Dynamics boss Steve Neal has confirmed that a car is being built for evaluation purposes. It will be tested next year ahead of a possible WTCC campaign in 2013.

Neil Brown Engineering, which builds the two-litre BTCC Honda Civic powerplants, is already working on a 1.6-litre WTCC unit.

Neal told AUTOSPORT: "We will have a car ready by the start of next year to go testing. You have to have a year developing it."

The Honda name has not appeared in the WTCC since James Thompson drove an N.Tecnology-run Accord in 2008.
