Honda Teases The Type R - Fastest One Yet?

 Breaking news!  It appears the 11th gen/ 2023 Honda Civic Type R has broken the track record for a FWD car at the Nurburgring.   There's a very interesting video on YouTube by Downshift that explains it.  And it also unpacks the question, is it the most powerful Type R yet?

Watch the video below to find out!  Matt from downshift gives the full explanation.  But first, I will be traveling to Watkins Glen International Speedway next week to film the IMSA Six Hours of the Glen, and the Michelin Challenge TCR race.

Here's a fast Honda Civic:

And here's the video we all are waiting for regarding the 2023 Civic Type R.  Did it break the lap record?

And to give you a preview of the action in the Six Hours of The Glen IMSA race here's a couple of shots I took last year.  This is the first turn, first lap of the race:

                            Stay tuned for the action coming June 24- 26 at Watkins Glen International
