Since the launch of the Acura NSX GT3 in America it was questioned whether one of the newest GT3s in the block would stay into American racing or if would expand its competition area, and the second option was revealed to be the choice as the Honda NSX GT3 was presented this Thursday (27) at Spa-Francorchamps as part of the 24 Hours of Spa events.
The car was prepared in a partnership between Honda and JAS Motorsport, a link that is pretty strong with long time in WTCC and also with the TCR customer programs under care of the Italian squad. JAS Motorsport was responsible also for the initial tests of the NSX GT3 while in Italy with Peter Kox at the wheel before being sent to United States to be used by RealTime Racing and Michael Shank Racing in Pirelli World Challenge and in the IMSA WeatherTech Sportscar Championship.
A batch of 12 cars are expected to be ready for the 2018 season, with JAS Motorsport doing also the sales and customer support in Europe, South America and in the Asian continent outside Japan. The NSX GT3 recently got two GTD class wins and a podium in IMSA competition to the records as good results are coming since the introduction of the car at the Rolex 24 at Daytona.
Around the world the NSX GT3 will face an incredibly higher level of competition in the GT3 championships, as no less than 11 manufacturer models and 3 tuner models clash in races varying from 1 to 24 hours, being them standalone or multi-classed.
