Honda Racing 2017

Honda Racing 2017



Tiago Monteiro 18 

“We start the season with the aim of capturing the WTCC drivers’ and manufacturers’ titles and have worked incredibly hard over the winter with the developments on the Civic to give us the best chance of doing this. A year ago I said it was the biggest step forward in performance I’d witnessed in the WTCC. Twelve months on, we’ve made an even bigger progression with an improved aero package and a more driveable engine, which should help us on every kind of circuit. Of course, I know our rivals haven’t been standing still during the winter, and I’m expecting a really close battle for position in every race from Norbi and Ryo, who I’m sure will be tough rivals, and from some of the drivers in the other teams too.”

“My target is simple; to become World Champion this year, and that has to start with a good points score in Morocco, especially while the Civic isn’t carrying any compensation weight. Last year we were very fast at the revamped Marrakech circuit, which features a lot of low-speed corners and rewards a car that is well-balanced under braking and has good traction. Several upgrades to the car were made at our final pre-season test at the Hungaroring and I think we’ve taken a significant step forwards compared to where we were even a few weeks ago, so everyone in the team can feel confident of a strong performance.”

“I am very excited about competing in a full World Championship for the first time. I enjoyed my debut as a wild-card at Motegi last year, but was very aware that I needed to learn the subtleties of a front-wheel-drive touring car after spending the past 20 years in single-seaters and GT cars. But the team and drivers have been incredibly welcoming and have worked hard to help me get up to speed. I’m setting realistic expectations for myself ahead of Marrakech, a circuit I’ve never driven on except on Honda’s simulator, but I’m looking forward to the challenge.”

The 2017 FIA World Touring Car Championship kicks off in Morocco this weekend with Honda and drivers Tiago Monteiro, Norbert Michelisz and Ryo Michigami targeting nothing less than the title.

An exciting season-opener is in store on the 3.0km Circuit Moulay El Hassan, which combines a permanent first half of the circuit – introduced last year – with a temporary portion that usually serves as part of the city’s road network.

Castrol Honda World Touring Car Team drivers Tiago Monteiro and Norbert Michelisz finished third and fourth in the 2016 points and are the highest-placed finishers from last year’s championship who return to battle for the title this season.

Tiago, 40, became the first Portuguese driver to lead an FIA World Championship last year and provided the most memorable moment of the entire season with the podium ceremony following victory in front of his home crowd on the streets of Vila Real.

After completing his most successful WTCC campaign to date by winning twice and finishing third overall, he has now set his sights even higher.

Norbert, 32, is Hungary’s biggest motor racing star and last year led home a Honda podium lock-out in Japan to add to seven other podium finishes.

New signing Ryo, 43, leaves behind a championship-winning career in Japan’s prestigious Super GT and Super Formula series to become a full-time WTCC driver for the first time.

Unlike his team-mates, the Honda Racing Team JAS racer has never driven on the Marrakech circuit, but has been learning several of the other tracks on the calendar during winter testing as he has acclimatised to the latest evolution of the Civic WTCC.

A number of regulation changes will play a part in deciding the destiny of the title in 2017 with increased points for MAC3 victories and longer Main Races (Nurburgring excepted) with five extra points on offer to the winners compared to last season.

The Civic WTCC will compete in both the Marrakech and Monza rounds free of compensation weight; the rolling system to ensure performance parity between rival cars not coming into force until the Hungaroring event in May.

Honda announce line-up for 2017 FIA WTCC

Honda announce line-up for 2017 FIA WTCC

Tiago Monteiro, Norbert Michelisz and Ryo Michigami





Honda are pleased to announce that Tiago Monteiro, Norbert Michelisz and Ryo Michigami will form a three-driver line-up in the FIA World Touring Car Championship in 2017.

The trio will race the latest development of the Honda Civic WTCC, which has undergone a programme of continued development from Honda R&D and JAS Motorsport this winter.

For Tiago, 2016 marked the best season of his WTCC career. Having become the first Portuguese driver to lead an FIA World Championship after an early-season victory in Slovakia, he finished third in the points and was a highly-popular winner at his home event on the streets of Vila Real in June.

The 40-year-old will embark on his fifth full season with Honda in 2017, having given the Civic WTCC its race debut at Suzuka, Japan, in 2012.

Hungarian driver Norbert, 32, joined the factory Honda team in 2016 after spending three seasons in privateer Civics and twice winning the WTCC Trophy for drivers of independent teams.

He led home a famous 1-2-3 finish at Honda’s home WTCC round in Japan and finished fourth in the drivers’ championship.

Ryo made his WTCC debut in a fourth Civic at Twin Ring Motegi last year and will gain further experience of the car during winter testing.

The 43-year-old triumphed in Japan’s prestigious Super GT Championship in a Honda NSX in 2000 and will become Japan’s first full-time entrant in the WTCC.

Honda’s 2017 WTCC line-up will not feature Rob Huff, who finished sixth in last season’s points and scored a debut victory at Circuit Paul Ricard in France.

Citroën C-Elysée WTCC - Münnich Motorsport

Huff and Münnich Motorsport reunite for WTCC driver title fight
 Huff and Münnich Motorsport reunite for WTCC driver title fight


Rob Huff’s FIA World Touring Car Championship rivals better beware: the former champion will face off for a second coveted crown in a Citroën C-Elysée WTCC.

Huff, who beat WTCC legend Yvan Muller to the 2012 title, is returning to ALL-INKL.COM Münnich Motorsport for 2017 following three seasons away driving for the LADA and Honda factory teams. During that time, the Citroën C-Elysée notched up 50 WTCC wins, making Huff one of the serious contenders to land this year’s FIA world championship for drivers.

René Münnich’s Germany-based team has acquired a C-Elysée WTCC from Citroën Racing and Huff can’t wait to get started. “I’m overjoyed to be rejoining my very good friends at Münnich Motorsport for the 2017 WTCC,” said the 37-year-old, the championship’s most experienced competitor. “Having had a very successful year with the team in 2013, we are excited to come back together in a much stronger position, with more experience and of course with the ultra-competitive Citroën package.

“Obviously when René Münnich approached me with the idea of a Huff-Citroën/Münnich Motorsport attack on the world driver championship for 2017 it was an opportunity that I simply could not pass on. It is a year when it’s quite possible for a private team to be WTCC champions, and that is our number one goal.”

ALL-INKL.COM Münnich Motorsport Team Manager Dominik Greiner said: “We are very much looking forward to the new season. You can clearly feel the motivation from every single person in the team. With the Citroën C-Elysée TC1 we have the most dominant car of the past three seasons. With Rob, we also have a driver with a lot of experience and success in the past. The combination of car, team and driver makes me feel very positive for the new season. It won’t be easy but we will try our best to fight for the world driver title.”

François Ribeiro, Head of Eurosport Events, the WTCC promoter, said: “If Rob and Münnich Motorsport can make their Citroën go as good as it looks then there’s no doubt they can join a growing list of title contenders during what will be a very open and competitive season. We must also recognise René Münnich’s continued support and commitment to the WTCC and the vision he has once again shown.”

The 2017 season starts at WTCC Race of Morocco in Marrakech from 7-9 April.
