We’re getting closer to finally getting a real good look at the upcoming and hotly anticipated 11th generation Civic Type R. As Honda puts the final touches on the production car, the automaker is parading its track-focused giant-killer and its next stop will be at the Honda Indy 200 race.

New 2023 Honda Civic Type R Sets New Suzuka Circuit Lap Record

A prototype of the new 2023 Honda Civic Type R has already proven that it will be a formidable car. Back in April, Honda shared with the world that the camouflaged Type R had set a new track record for a front-wheel-drive car at the legendary Suzuka Circuit, home to the Formula 1 Japanese Grand Prix.

For this round of show-and-race, the Type R will lap the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course during the events surrounding the July 1-3 Honda Indy Race. The area’s link to Honda goes back 40 years when the car company established the first auto manufacturing facilities by a Japanese automaker in the US.

The specially-camouflaged 2023 Honda Civic Type R prototype will complete numerous demonstration laps over the weekend, and serve as the lead vehicle as the start of the NTT INDYCAR SERIES race on Sunday, July 3.
