    Honda has just set a new FWD production car record around the famed Spa-Francorchamps tracks with a 2:53.72 record lap. Watch the record lap below!

    This comes as part of Honda's Type R Time Attack Challenge 2018 in which Honda has gathered a star studded group of race car drivers to set new records at five racetracks around Europe. The Spa record lap follows on from a lap record at the Magny-Cours GP circuit. Next up for Honda are record attempts at Silverstone, Estoril, and the Hungaroring.

    Besides these circuits, the Civic Type R already holds the title for the fastest front-wheel drive production car around the Nurburgring when it set a time of 7 minutes and 43.8 seconds in April 2017.

    I really wish they would show us the actual instrument cluster. Also, the auto-clipping mic they are using is really annoying as it makes it sound like he lets off the throttle on the rumble strips.

    I'd love to see a time on this track with a tune. It is such a fast course that 30% more power would likely take multiple seconds off.

    I wonder what tires they were using. Stock tires are greasy on the track.

    And it set up a record 5 months ago on Magny-Cours also, I guess it was already posted somewhere here.

    If you listen carefully there is no gear grind in these videos compared to the Nurburgring hotlap. So I'm hoping.
