    They did lots of things to make it faster. It was on non-stock tires, had air-con stripped out “to compensate for the weight of the roll cage” and had a “pre-production” engine tune. Honda refuses to give specs.

    Comparing Honda’s manufacturer time of 7:43.8 to Sport Auto Magazine’s RS time of 8:06.3 is definitely apples-to-oranges. Unfortunately Sport Auto hasn’t run the new CTR and Ford won’t do an official RS time.

    However can look at the last gen FK2 CTR because Honda used it to do a 7:50.6 and Sport Auto used it to do an 8:15 which is 5% slower. If we assume that a Sport Auto time in the new CTR would also be 5% slower than the manufacturer time, then that would put it at 8:7.8 which is slightly slower than they were able to run the RS.

    That’s pretty consistent with a lot of track comparisons to the RS. The RS is faster by a small margin; so small that it ends up being the driver that makes the most difference.

    So it is possible to make a CTR look worse.
