Two iconic motor racing names will come together this summer as Castrol Honda Racing brings the Honda NSX GT3 to the 24 Hours of Spa Francorchamps.

22 May 2018 | International News : U.K.


The NSX GT3, which builds upon Honda's next generation supercar and utilises the same 3.5-litre, twin-turbocharged V6 engine is a race winner in the North American-based IMSA WeatherTech Sports Car Championship and Pirelli World Challenge. The car currently competes in high-level series on three continents as part of Honda's NSX GT3 Customer Racing Programme.

The centrepiece of the Blancpain GT Series, held on 26th to 29th July, marks the return of the NSX name to the Spa 24 Hours a quarter of a century after Armin Hahne, Bertrand Gachot and Kazuo Shimizu started the 1993 race from pole position in a Honda Belgium-entered car also supported by Castrol.

The NSX has achieved significant success in motor racing since its launch in 1990, including GT victory at the 1995 Le Mans 24 Hours and six titles in Japan's ultra-competitive Super GT series. JAS Motorsport, who are responsible for car assembly and sales in Europe, will provide technical assistance at Spa as part of the collaborative global programme.
