NSX GT3 Is Ready To Take On The World

Acura’s NSX GT3 has just completed homologation testing in France and they’re ready to take on the upcoming 2017 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship and the Pirelli World Challenge Championships.

Fielding two new Acura NSX GT3 race cars at the WeatherTech Championship is Michael Shank Racing. For the past two seasons, they’ve been working with Honda and a powered Ligier chassis in the prototype division and according to Racer, they managed to win at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca this year. Next year, they’ll be running the NSX GT3s in the GTD class of the endurance racing series.

Attacking the Pirelli World Challenge front will RealTime Racing.
The Winconsin based team will be switching from the Acura TLX GT to the NSX GT3 and we can expect great things from them as they’ve won three victories during the past two season alone in the sprint-race series. What’s more, they’re used to winning with Acura and Honda vehicles as they’ve clocked in a total of 88 World Challenge race victories and 14 championships since 1993.

Not only will both teams be racing the NSX GT3s, they’ll also be working with Honda Performance Development to further develop and test the vehicles, ensuring that every vehicle is up to FIA GT3 global racing specifications.

We’ll have to wait until July next year to see the NSX GT3 make its first public run in the Pirelli World Challenge.

Sweet ! This should be quite interesting. I'll probably forget about it until it comes up closer to time though lol

Looking at the amount of wins that RealTime Racing took home, I'm betting that they'll perform better than Michael Shank Racing.

Aren't they going to be racing two different races...?

RedNSX 10-03-2016 10:14 AM

They are, I meant who's going to win more and which position they come in.

Can't say since I have no clue about the history of either teams. Maybe RealTime Racing since they're more familiar with the ins and outs of Honda/Acura vehicles and years of racing with them.

RedNSX 10-05-2016 10:15 AM

The first race is in July which gives both teams ample time to mod the NSX if needed and get used to the car. I hope they release some info about their plans before then because that's a long wait.

Well.. mod within reason to still stay within spec. But hopefully we get to see some videos of some shakedown runs and what not
