Honda NSX Racer to debut at Britcar Championship`s last round

John Danby Racing has developed a Honda NSX racer. For those of you who do not know, John Danby Racing participates in the Britcar Championship. The Honda NSX racer was built to comply with the Britcar Production regulations and it has already completed a successful series of tests at Snetterton in Norfolk some time ago. These tests were taken because the Honda NSX racing car has to be ready for its debut at the final round of the Britcar Championship that will take place this weekend at Brands Hatch. The Honda NSX was finished in matte black.

According to John Danby Racing the Honda NSX has some of the latest technology features like custom solutions that have been adopted for the dampers and brakes, engine control as well as data logging capabilities including live feed video, GPS and Fly by Wire.

James Barclay (the regular driver for John Danby Racing) along with Vicky Butler-Henderson (motoring journalist and TV persona) will be driving the Honda NSX racer during the daytime Production race while the same James Barclay alongside with David Fenn (Britcar regular) this time will be driving the Honda NSX racer for the evening GT race. It will be very interesting to see how well the Honda NSX will perform.

For those of you who do not know, the Honda NSX (or Acura NSX how it was sold in North America) was produced between 1990 and 2005. The Honda NSX is considered as being one of the most important sport car legends and when it was discontinued a lot of car enthusiasts were disappointed. Unfortunately, by 2005 the Honda NSX got to be produced in only a couple hundred units worldwide and the Japanese automaker decided that the Honda NSX simple was not economically viable anymore.
