Friday September 13th 2002 , 8:59 pm GMT, is where it all began, and CTRO™ was born, and some things are not born equal.
CTRO™ is a dedicated Honda owners club, and we love what we do, it’s who we are. As a team working side by side, we aspire to deliver the best resource for Honda products anywhere in the world: a place where work, life and inspiration are all equal and integrated.
Established as an idea to bring together Honda Civic Type R drivers across the UK, it soon turned into a much bigger project that has culminated in the creation of a dedicated team who work closely with Honda UK/Europe and via our partners in the US, and as a result we are able to provide a dedicated insight into all Honda products including the halo brand “Type R”
Our team at CTRO™ have worked with Honda on numerous events including vehicle launches, motor shows, owner events and the organisation of photo shoots for every major UK automotive magazine publisher. We are THE definitive resource for all things Honda and Type R.
Our other activities include the support of the official Honda touring car teams in both the BTCC (British Touring Car Championship) for Honda Yuasa Racing and also the WTCC (World Touring Car Championship) for Honda Castrol Racing.
For the BTCC in particular we have been actively involved with them since 2008 in the promotional activities of the team, providing an outlet for social media advertising and interaction for the fans of the race team.
Recent events include helping to develop and deliver the 2015 Type R social media launch campaigns for #RoadToRedline and #HondaRedline , culminating in European events based across Europe at famous places such as Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps, the Nurburgring and even as far afield as the Slovakia Ring.
One thing we soon realised, is that if you set out to be original, then prepare to be copied, and out of this came our club motto borrowed from the Traub Manufacturing Company in 1927.
“Often Imitated , Never Duplicated”
If you want the very best in Type R information and Honda news, you have found the right place, and we welcome you to our world, the world of Honda, the world of Type R, but more importantly to our family, the family of CTRO™.
