Peter was one of the first to take on slick tyres, with a drying track, resulting in a quick spin on the outlap!

Full press release:
B-Quik Racing confirms that it will return to Sepang International Circuit on 8-11 December 2016 to compete in the prestigious Sepang 12 Hours for the third consecutive year, with our driver lineup from the last edition, Henk J. Kiks, Daniel Bilski and Peter Kox, being reunited in our Audi R8 LMS Cup.
The most important endurance race in South East Asia, the Sepang 12 Hours, was the scene in 2014 of B-Quik Racing’s first ever long distance race participation and clinching the runners up position in the GTC class was a superb debut reward for the team. Last year we returned to the race and finished in third place – meaning our two entries in the Sepang 12 Hours have netted two visits to the podium.
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.
“Based on a very successful test program, we’re taking the next logical step in seeing how we stack-up against the competition,” said Art St. Cyr, president of Honda Performance Development.
“Mid-Ohio seemed like the perfect opportunity, given the demands it places on a racecar and its proximity to NSX R&D and manufacturing.”
