Acura began developing its newest race car in Japan but now Honda Performance Development in California is taking over duties for testing and final homologation. The automaker hasn’t officially announced what series it will be running in North American next year, but you can bet we will be seeing the 2017 Acura NSX GT3 contending for a podium in no time.
