Leading wholesaler and distributor of motorsport and performance aftermarket products Co-ordSport has confirmed that it will sponsor this year’s Milltek Sport Civic Cup. The highly respected supplier of high-end brands has added its name to the increasing list of supporters for the rejuvenated Honda Championship.
With 50 registrations already received ahead of the 16-round 2021 season and a new event organising team working behind the scenes to boost its profile, the Civic Cup has now become Britain’s most popular one-make series for Hondas.
As well as supporting the championship as a sponsor, Co-ordSport has also become an official parts supplier and as such, will offer registered teams and drivers preferential deals across a range of components, as Managing Director Peter Collinson explains:
“With the boost in numbers and organisers implementing changes that will raise the profile of the Championship in 2021, we see this as a great time to get involved. Ever since we started the business over 30 years ago, we have always specialised in the supply of tuning and competition parts for Japanese cars, including a wide range of parts for Hondas.
We therefore see this new association with the Civic Cup as a way of endorsing this long-standing heritage and us putting something back into the sport we love – racing. It also provides us with an opportunity to attract new customers, particularly in the aftermarket tuning sector where the Civic Type R has become so prevalent in recent years.”
Owner of the Civic Cup Stewart Lines, who’s company Maximum Motorsport promotes the Championship, is delighted to welcome Co-ordSport to the Championship, and said:
“This season is all about raising the profile of the Civic Cup and increasing awareness amongst teams and drivers, to endorse that it’s the place to be if you want to race a Honda. Having a company as well-established as Co-ordSport onboard is a great way to help achieve this.
It not only adds to the credibility of the championship, but enables competitors to purchase parts at preferential rates from a supplier that knows what its talking about. We therefore look forward to a close working relationship for this and more seasons to come.”
Driver Jamie Tonks will compete in this year’s Civic Cup driving a car supported by PartBOX, Co-ordSport’s on-line shop for motorsport and tuning parts.

About the Civic Cup
The Milltek Sport Civic Cup comprises two classes: The Cup Class, for EP3, FN2 and FK models manufactured between 2001 and 2011 with a limited number of modifications permitted; and the Production Class, for EP3 and FN2 Type-R models manufactured between 2001 and 2005.
In all cases, cars must be fitted with Honda’s 2-litre K-Series engine and retain many of the standard OE components. Only controlled performance parts may be fitted. Consequently, costs are kept to a minimum and competition remains close throughout the season.
