Races To Lead 2017 Acura NSX GT3 Effort Announced

Acura Motorsports today announced that Michael Shank Racing will lead the company's effort in the 2017 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, while RealTime Racing will continue to head the manufacturer's attack in the SCCA Pirelli World Challenge.  Each team will field a pair of new Acura NSX GT3 race cars, now being prepared for FIA homologation.

Long-time Acura Motorsports partner RealTime Racing will again contest the Pirelli World Challenge, switching to the new NSX GT3 from the Acura TLX GT, which the Wisconsin-based team has used to record three victories during the past two seasons in the highly-competitive sprint-race series.  RealTime has a long history of success in racing a wide range of Acura and Honda products, including 88 World Challenge race victories and 14 championships since 1993.

Operating for the past two seasons as a customer team fielding a Honda-powered Ligier chassis in IMSA's prototype division, Michael Shank Racing has been a consistent front-runner in the headline category of the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, winning earlier this year at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca among five 2016 podium finishes. The Columbus, Ohio-based operation will run a pair of Acura NSX GT3s in the GTD class of the endurance racing series.
