After victories in IMSA and Pirelli World Challenge, the NSX GT3 will race in the FIA GT World Cup
It has been revealed that the Honda NSX GT3 will make its racing debut in the FIA GT World Cup during the 64th Macau Grand Prix weekend (16-19 November 2017). Previously, the car has seen action in the IMSA Championship and the Pirelli World Challenge in North America.
Honda Motor will field a single NSX GT3, driven by Dutchman Renger van der Zande who holds a resume that include a second place overall finish at the Spa and Nürburgring 24 hour races, 2016 LMPC champion in the IMSA Weather tech Sports Car Championship, and a podium finish at Sebring.
This is on top of numerous sprint race wins, including the Pirelli World Challenge, International GT Open, F3 Euro Series, British Formula 3 Championship, and Formula Renault Germany. Of course, the 31-year old also has plenty of experience racing in the 6.1km Guia track in Macau.
The FIA GT World Cup will be Honda’s platform to showcase the NSX GT3 Customer Racing Programme which will be available to the global audience, following its launch at the Spa 24 Hours race in July.
Honda indicates that by the 2018 racing season, twelve examples of the race car will be ready.
