Two years ago Honda asked a few of its World Touring Car and British Touring Car Championship drivers to set self-certified lap records at five historic European tracks in a 2016 the Civic Type R. The automaker's putting together another record-seeking circus for the new Civic Type R, and have asked ex-Formula 1 driver and F1 World Champion Jenson Button to lead a ragtag band of apex hot-shoes for what's called Honda's Civic Type R Time Attack 2018.
The final roster of drivers and tracks is still in the works, but we know the wheelmen include Button and his fellow NSX Super GT driver Bertrand Baguette, and World Touring Car drivers Tiago Monteiro and Esteban Guerrieri. The five tracks from the last go-round will definitely feature, meaning trips to Silverstone, Spa-Francorchamps, Monza, Estoril and the Hungaroring. Even though the Civic Type R holds the current record for front-wheel-drive production cars at the Nürburgring Nordschleife, we're certain Button & Co will pay it a visit.
