Honda has demanded victory in this year’s Bosch Australian Rally Championship.

Honda Australia unveiled its two new Jazz rally cars at Bosch’s headquarters in Melbourne yesterday, and lead driver Eli Evans admits the pressure will be on to perform.

“I’ve been told this year, we must win,” Evans told

“Honda said “What do we need to win?” and we said “a G2 car with the new regulations.”

“They gave us the new Honda Jazz, and so far so good. It feels fantastic. It feels like an improvement on the Honda Civic Type R.”

The cars will be driven by Evans and Mark Pedder and will make their debut at the inaugural Rally Calder next weekend.
