Honda Malaysia today announced and celebrated winners of the recently concluded ‘Sprint to the Suzuka Circuit’ campaign.
The 10 exclusive winners, who purchased and registered a Honda Civic Type R between April and July 2018, were chosen based on the most creative answers to the 2 short questions.
Each winner will receive two business class flight tickets, two entrance tickets to the iconic 2018 Formula 1 Japanese Grand Prix at Suzuka Circuit in early October 2018, four-nights accommodation in Japan and two sets of official Honda Merchandise, all worth up to RM30,000.
The lucky winners will be showing their full support for Honda-powered Scuderia Toro Rosso (STR) at the technical figure-of-eight circuit of the Suzuka Circuit. The 5.8-kilometre circuit is the only Japanese grand prix circuit in the current Formula One calendar, and Honda is the only Japanese Formula One power unit supplier.
Honda will also power STR’s senior racing team, four-time world champion Red Bull Racing from the 2019 season.
Being the most powerful Honda model ever sold in Malaysia, 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.
Commenting about the campaign, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Honda Malaysia Mr Toichi Ishiyama said, “I would like to extend my appreciation to the Civic Type R customers for their support towards Honda Malaysia. It is our honour and a great pleasure to reward the winners who are also owners of the best engineered Civic Type R,”
“This hot hatch is truly a driver’s car with track-worthy performance yet providing great enjoyment to the driver in their daily commute. The Civic Type R is an amazing piece of engineering that provides the Joy of Driving to its owners.” Mr Ishiyama concluded.
While you might have missed the opportunity for the Japan F1 trip, Honda Malaysia is offering another value-added chance on the ownership of the fully imported Civic Type R. Take advantage of the final few weeks of tax-free holiday as well as ‘Honda Extravaganza Unity Rewards’ that offers the RM 302,000 Civic Type R with a special bonus of up to RM 60,000!
A capable chassis design, advanced aerodynamics, and powerful 2.0-litre turbocharged VTEC engine (310 PS and 400 Nm) have helped the Civic Type R to a slew of records the world over, most notably, being the fastest FWD production car to lap the iconic Nürburgring Nordschleife circuit in Germany.
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 on the top as the fastest car in its class.
