By CARSIFU | 10 August 2018

PETALING JAYA: Honda Malaysia today announced the winners of the recently concluded "Sprint to the Suzuka Circuit" campaign. The campaign was held to reward Honda customers who had bought and registered a Civic Type R from April to July, 2018.

The 10 winners were chosen based on the most creative answers to two short questions. Each winner will receive two business class flight tickets, two entrance tickets to the 2018 Formula 1 Japanese Grand Prix at Suzuka Circuit in October, a 5 days 4 nights accommodation in Japan and two sets of official Honda merchandise, all worth up to RM30,000.

Honda Malaysia has received more than 100 bookings and delivered more than 80 units of the Civic Type R since its launch in November 2017. The car is the most powerful Honda model ever sold in Malaysia. The fully imported car is priced at RM301,928 (on-the-road without insurance).


Powered by a 2.0L VTEC Turbocharged engine, producing 306hp and maximum torque of 400Nm, the Civic Type R was designed to deliver a exhilarating drive in the hot hatch segment. It comes with three drive modes - Comfort, Sport and +R - allowing drivers to experience different dynamic performance both on the road and on the race track.

Recently, the Civic Type R completed its fifth and final planned series across Europe known as the Civic Type R Challenge 2018. The Civic Type R achieved its objectives and broke five records for a front wheel drive production car at all five iconic European race circuits, putting the Civic Type R in the lead as the fastest car in its class.

Only selected Honda dealerships known as Sport Dealers (see list above) stocked the Civic Type R. Honda Malaysia has 20 such Sport Dealers.
