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.
