It’s Friday, the time when you get to kick back a little, wind down as you prepare for the weekend. And for ten winners of the ‘Sprint to the Suzuka Circuit’ campaign, there is just a bit more to celebrate – because they get to attend a plush 5 days 4 nights trip to the upcoming Formula 1 Japanese GP at the Suzuka Circuit in October. Together with accommodation, two sets of official Honda merchandise, and the pair of business flight tickets, it all adds up to RM30,000.
The campaign was reward Honda Malaysia customers who had purchased and registered a Honda Civic Type R during the contest period, with the winners chosen based on the most creative answer to two short questions.
Commenting about the campaign, managing director and chief executive officer of Honda Malaysia Mr. Toichi Ishiyama said, “I would like to extend my appreciation to the Civic Type R customers for their support towards Honda Malaysia. It is our honour and great pleasure to reward the winners who are also owners of the best engineered Civic Type R.”
The Civic FK8 R is the most powerful Honda model ever sold by Honda Malaysia, its turbocharged 2.0-litre VTEC making 310ps and 400Nm. You can see it in action on a racing track in the hands of former F1 driver Jenson Button by watching this video here.
The fully imported Civic Type R is priced at RM301,928 on-the-road without insurance (under the current zero-rated GST pricing that lasts only to the end of August 2018, mind you). You can’t just place an order in any Honda dealer though, because that’s only possible at Honda Sport Dealers.
