The building of the Honda Accord 2.0i that will take part in the 2004 FIA European Touring Car Championship is making great steps forwards.

The JAS Motorsport personnel is working fast to complete the programme on scheduled. Testing will begin by the mid of April, in order to make the new car debut on the FIA ETCC third race meeting, on May 2nd at Magny-Cours.

While waiting for the new Accord, JAS Motorsport will take part in the first two race meetings of the European Championship - in Monza on March 28th, and Valencia on April 18th - with a Honda Civic Type-R car driven by Alessandro Balzan.

"I'm quite pleased of how the project is going on at JAS," Balzan commented. "I'm sure the Accord will be competitive since its first races."

The announcement of the JAS Motorsport's participation with the new Accord has aroused a great interest, and the team has received a number of requests from drivers wishing to drive the sister car in the second half of the season. Therefore this opportunity is attentively considered by the Italian team.
