At the end of the Rally of Tasmania the Honda Civic Type R just missed out on a podium finish by seconds to finish overall in fourth place.

Fourth place isn't a bad outcome for the Evans Motorsport Honda Civic Type R's first go.

Over two competitive stages on Friday the Evans and Weston team finished first and second and ended the day second overall by just 0.3 of a second.

With cooler weather on Sunday Evans tackled the next eight stages with force. The next six stages saw the Civic win three stages and come second in another three. At the final stage Evans broke the gear lever selecting second and was unable to change gears, this resulted in a slow time.

Eli Evans and Glen Weston from the Evans Motorsport team are very happy with the Honda Type R, with its winning potential it became a crowd favourite.
