We were very impressed with Honda's new Civic Type R when we tested it on the road earlier this year, but the racing version has also been making waves in the British Touring Car Championship this year. We caught up with Honda Yuasa Racing's Matt Neal at Silverstone for a drive in the Civic Type R race car.

While the road car isn't left wanting for power with 306bhp, the BTCC racer has a massive 370bhp available from just 3000rpm. Matt Prior straps in for a drive.

At least all the stickers disguise the ugliness somewhat.
