Restart Racing will be the first team in the world to compete with the brand-new Honda Civic Type R FL5 TCR, where it’ll make its debut in this year’s TCR UK championship.

The #1 will be carried by Chris’ brand-new Honda Civic Type R FL5 TCR from Round 1 of the championship at Snetterton, which will be the global debut of the new car, prepared by touring car specialists JAS Motorsport.

Chris’ car will also be running a new livery, which will be revealed in full ahead of the season opener at Snetterton.

The team hit the ground running with an ex-TCR Europe Honda Civic Type R FK7 last year, and the team hasn’t changed the winning formula at all, as the team is only just about to take delivery of the new third generation TCR car from JAS Motorsport.

“I’m really excited for the start of the season, more so than any other I think. Last year was a step into the unknown, while this year it’s a very different feeling going in as the champion, and knowing there will be a target on your back, but it’s an exciting feeling.

“I’m also very happy that we’ll be racing the brand-new Honda Civic Type R this year. We developed a great relationship with the Honda car builders JAS in Italy last year, and now we’ve been entrusted with the racing debut of this stunning new car – I can’t wait to hit the track at Snetterton and seeing what it can do.”
