Civic Type R Trifecta: Fun to Drive, Chance to Win and Give Back all at Once!
Honda has teamed with online fundraising platform Omaze to offer an exclusive prize package for driving enthusiasts in North America, featuring the 2021 Civic Type R Limited Edition.
Starting today, fans can enter for their chance to win the very first 2021 Honda Civic Type R Limited Edition for the U.S., Serial Plate 001. In addition to driving home the Type R Limited Edition, the randomly drawn winner also will receive a once-in-a-lifetime driving experience on the track with Honda IndyCar driver, Colton Herta.
Donations support Honda’s partner, the Thurgood Marshall College Fund (TMCF), which supports 47 public Historically Black Colleges and Universities, medical schools, and law schools and is the nation’s largest organization exclusively representing the Black College Community. Fans can enter for a chance to win, starting today through Feb. 18, 2021 at 11:59 p.m. PST: Omaze.com/CivicTypeR.
“We’re excited to link Honda’s ‘racing spirit’ and the all-new Civic Type R Limited Edition to benefit Historically Black Colleges and Universities and the Thurgood Marshall College Fund,” said Yvette Hunsicker, division head and vice president, Corporate Social Responsibility and the Office of Inclusion and Diversity at American Honda. “One lucky Type R fan is going to take home a very special vehicle and have an exclusive driving experience at a Honda track with Colton Herta, while helping support the needs of HBCU students navigating their education during COVID-19.”
Donations that support the Thurgood Marshall College Fund, which is currently running a COVID-19 Emergency Fund, provide support for students in areas such as technology, mental health, housing, and food insecurity.
“Historically Black Colleges and Universities have been greatly impacted by COVID-19, and many of our students don’t have a safety net,” said Dr. Harry L. Williams, president and CEO of TMCF. “This initiative to give away a Honda Civic Type R Limited Edition will help us continue to provide much-needed assistance to our students and schools.”
The Honda Civic Type R first hit the ground in the U.S. in 2017, and has continued to impress and turn the heads of enthusiasts with its combination of powerful performance and civilized driving manners. The new Limited Edition model, in its eye-catching Phoenix Yellow paint, takes the already high-performance Type R to the next level through various changes in engineering and features designed to maximize its potential while remaining street-legal. The Serial Plate 001 Civic Type R Limited Edition is the first of 600 Limited Edition models planned for the U.S. market.
Honda associates and their immediate families are not eligible to win.
