Honda Racing has started his pre-season test MotorLand
Aragon with the conclusion of a test of three days with the Honda Civic WTCC.
The training managed by JAS Motorsport has chosen the aragon track, as
already did a year ago, to begin to work on your TC1. In the team know
the output of Citroën Racing as official team transfers all the pressure to
Honda, he can not lose the opportunity of winning the drivers title and brands. And with that great
target have initiated the work, Norbert Michelisz, Tiago Monteiro and Ryo Michigami, pilot of the latter which takes the place of Rob Huff.
With a favourable climatic conditions, the three pilots
of Honda in the WTCC and have been able to enjoy three days of rather intense.
In this aspect, while Tiago Monteiro and Norbert Michelisz have focused
a large part of their work in trying some aerodynamic components new that have
prepared by the technicians of Honda, Ryo Michigami has focused its efforts on
to adapt to the Honda Civic TC1, a vehicle that is only known to your participation
in the round of the WTCC at Motegi last year. The japanese has to face a period of
adaptation before being able to be at the height of their peers of the box.
One of the main objectives during the preseason
team Honda Racing Team JAS is greatly reduce the aerodynamic drag

systematic slower in a straight than the rest of the car TC1. With little margin
of maneuver to gain some extra horse engine in the 1.6 Turbo of the brand, the team has focused their work in this pack aerodynamic that have
tested on the long straight of circuit of Alcaniz, but that will continue to be evaluated in the
next test programmed in the computer.
