The 2022 Honda Civic Si's Ready To Go Racing

As part of the Civic Si’s tease, Honda revealed that they were going to take their new hot sedan racing. At the time, the race car was covered in camo because the production car hadn’t been unveiled yet. Now that the production 2022 Civic Si’s out, Honda has now shown off what the race car version looks like.

Developed by Honda Performance Development (HPD) as a turn-key racer, this Civic Si is designed to compete in Touring Car competition.

Built from a body-in-white for SRO TC Americas, amateur touring car series, club racing, and dedicated track day use, the race car foregoes a sunroof, sound proofing insulation, underbody coating and seam sealer to reduce weight and aid in roll cage installation.

The car continues to use the same turbocharged engine and 6-speed manual, but features performance and safety-related parts and components such as:
  • Performance-tuned production-based ECU
  • High-capacity aluminum radiator
  • High strength 4th gear set
  • Racing limited-slip differential
  • Turbo-back dual-outlet exhaust
  • Inverted double-adjustable dampers
  • Race coil springs
  • Front camber plates with caster inserts
  • Camber-adjustable rear upper arm
  • Momo Etna 17 x 8 wheels
  • Pirelli 245/620-17 DHH racing slicks
  • Wilwood 6-piston Superlite racing front calipers
  • Wilwood 2-piece slotted floating rear rotors
  • Pagid racing brake pads
  • Stainless-steel braided brake hoses
  • OMP quick disconnect steering wheel
  • OMP racing seat
  • OMP 6-point safety harness
  • OMP on-board fire suppression system
  • AiM Technologies MXP main display
  • Motec C125 center dash logger
