BEIJING – Dongfeng-Honda Automobile Co., Ltd. (Dongfeng-Honda) and the Beijing International Marathon (BIM) Organizing Committee reached an agreement in mid-August to adopt the Civic Hybrids and Civic sedan/hatchbacks as the official vehicles to be used during the 2007 Marathon games in the capital city. Dongfeng-Honda is also the exclusive auto sponsor of the event.
The 2007 BIM will take place on October 21, with close to 20,000 professional and amateur participants coming from all over the world. As a sponsor of the event, Dongfeng-Honda will provide not only vehicles but also auto maintenance and support.
