Could Honda also make a return to the WTCC?

Ford may not be the only manufacturer planning to make a return to the World Touring Car Championship, with the British Touring Car Championship outfit Team Dynamics confirming that it is building a WTCC-spec Honda with a view to entering it in the 2013 championship season.

Team Dynamics is currently one of the leading outfits in the British scene, and Neil Brown Engineering – which currently builds the Super-2000-spec engines for the outfit’s BTCC campaign – will be contracted to develop a 1.6-litre turbo engine to comply with the FIA championship’s rules.

“We will have a car ready by the start of next year to go testing,” Dynamics boss Steve Neal told AUTOSPORT. “You have to have a year developing it.”

Honda has not been a full-time part of the WTCC since James Thompson drove an Accord Euro-R run by the N.Technology squad.
