The Acura NSX GT3 will make its public on-track debut in this weekend’s Pirelli World Challenge round at Mid-Ohio, in testing and practice sessions only, in anticipation of a planned race debut in 2017.
Newly named Acura GT3 development driver Peter Kox, as revealed by Sportscar365, will handle driving duties of the car on Thursday at Friday in the sessions.
