Jenson Button has set a Bathurst lap-record in a Honda Civic Type R

By on May 20, 2019 in Latest News, Professional with No Comments

Honda has deployed the Civic Type R to set a new front-wheel drive, production car lap-record at the iconic Mount Panorama circuit at Bathurst, Australia. Not the most exciting news you may think, but the driver was a certain Jenson Button. Nice to know he’s still doing his thing isn’t it?

The former Honda F1 driver set a time of 2m 35.2s on the 3.9-mile circuit – home to the bonkers Bathurst 1000 – which is actually considered a public road for 350 days of the year.

Incidentally, Jenson also holds the unofficial, all-time lap-record on the Mount Panorama circuit having done a 1m 48.8s in a Formula One car in 2011 whilst promoting the Australian Grand Prix, which is held a short (in Australian terms) eight-hour drive away in Melbourne.
