JAS build the NSX GT3s for sale to individual teams. The teams are responsible for setting the cars up to race. Last year, in an effort to generate some interest in the NSX as no one was even remotely interested in buying one to race, JAS entered a sole entry in the Spa round. To very little effect.

Button is teaming up with the RJN team, who have run Nissan GTRs with reasonable success the the past.

But it will all be for naught if they don't get a LOT of technical back up from Honda. The game they're playing in is a high stakes game for all the "exotics" manufacturers, and factory involvement behind the scenes is crucial, which is one reason I think Honda fails, as they don't seem to give JAS enough factory support, or JAS just aren't up to it?


Given JAS mucks around Civics/Accords for decades and now the NSX, they should get factory support... Do they? I don't know, I didn't follow much European racing after BTCC circa 2012.



My understanding is that the NSX GT3 program is sponsored by HPD. I know HPD does all the support in the Western Hemisphere. And I am fairly sure that Katherine Legge is supported by HPD, as is Ryan Eversley.

HPD significantly supports the program as well as the CTR racing program. The NSX GT3 has won races in IMSA, and Legge finished second in the IMSA GTD driver's championship last season.
