Honda And Castrol Rekindle Endurance Racing Ties With NSX GT3

Honda and Castol have unveiled the NSX GT3 that race at July’s 24 Hours of Spa Francorchamps.

This year’s race, set to be held on July 26-29, marks an interesting anniversary for the Japanese automaker, as in 1993, the original NSX started the Spa 24 Hours from pole position with Armin Hahne, Bertrand Gachot and Kazuo Shimizu. That NSX was also sponsored by Castol.

Since taking to the circuit after the road-going NSX was released, the current NSX GT3 has claimed race victories in the IMSA WeatherTech Sports Car Championship and the Pirelli World Challenge.

Discussing the partnership between Castrol and Honda, sponsorship manager from Castrol, Donald Smith, said the duo look forward to working together once again.

“The partnership between Castrol and Honda is one of the most iconic in motor racing and dates back to the 1960s. Since then the iconic Castrol Honda livery has been the backdrop to a huge number of World Championship success and international race wins on two wheels and four, and we’re proud to see it on the NSX GT3.

“Castrol supported the pole-winning NSX campaign at the Spa 24 Hours in 1993 and we are extremely excited to have the opportunity to continue the relationship in this year’s event, which promises to be the most closely-contested race in a generation,” Smith said.

    A million times better looking than the consumer production model. I hope for them this race cars weight has been reduced by a lot.

  • Love the livery, but competition is tough, let’s see how well NSX can perform.
