UK Racing Series to have a Spec V8 in an Accord Body
 Date: August 22, 2003 19:04
 Submitted by:  Anonymous
 Source: www.pistonheads.com
 Credibility Rating: N/A


Update: Our European correspondent tells us: "In this series all the cars have the same engine. The only thing that Honda is doing is putting the Accord bodyshell, nothing more." So the engine is apparently just a spec engine inside an Accord body.

From the article:
"Honda has become the fourth manufacturer to confirm approval for the UK's SCV8 Supercar Championship. Approval from Honda for its Accord brand to be represented, takes the all-new championship to within one manufacturer of its target of five brands for 2004.

So far approved cars include the Honda Accord, Jaguar X Type, Peugeot (2004 Saloon) and the Vauxhall Vectra.

SCV8 has been developed with the aim of bringing fans a series that features the excitement and spectacle of extremely high performance, yet easily recognisable, saloon cars for fast and furious championship racing. The V8, 550bhp, rear wheel drive configuration of the cars guarantees crowd pleasing action and has been designed to put the wow! factor back into British motor racing."
