Boutsen Ginion Racing confirm two Honda Civics for 2018 WTCR

Belgian team Boutsen Ginion Racing have confirmed that they will participate in this year’s World Touring Car Cup (WTCR) with a two-car team of Honda Civic Type R cars.

The team have previously competed in the TCR Benelux Series and TCR International Series, the latter of which it contested the final four events of 2017 with Aurélien Panis after he switched from the World Touring Car Championship.

The team also helped Benjamin Lessennes to the overall title in the 2017 TCR Benelux series, with the young Belgian racing at the wheel of a Honda as well.

“It’s a new and great challenge which is coming for my team,” said Team Manager Olivier Lainé. “I am pleased to start a new adventure in the FIA World Touring Car Cup.

“After two years full of successes, it made sense for us to continue with Honda. I am really looking forward to start the first tests with the new Civic TCR.”

Drivers of the two JAS Motorsport-built machines have yet to be announced.
