Acura NSX Type S to tow rear half of another NSX in One Lap of America

Acura has announced that an Acura NSX Type S with a matching trailer will compete in this year’s One Lap of America. Acura engineers will compete in the eight-day, 3,200 mile road rally from May 6-13.

OLOA NSX Type S and Trailer

The Acura NSX Type S will tow the rear half of another NSX, that will haul spare tires, tools and fluids to each track event. An Acura TLX Type S is also set to compete.

A Thermal Orange Pearl Acura NSX Type S will be driven by Justyn Bobinski and Chad Gilsinger, who are both vehicle dynamics and brake system engineers at Honda’s North American Auto Development Center in Ohio. They will compete in the Sports and Grand Touring, Small Bore, Stock GT class over $50,000. The NEX will be largely unmodified with Red Line Synthetic Oil, lightweight HRE wheels wrapped in Falken high-performance tires and the same wrap as Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach pace cars.

For the trailer, a NSX test mule was rescued from destruction, cut in half, and fitted with custom barn doors. It rides on H&R springs, with lightweight HRE wheels and Falken high-performance tires.

“When we saw the opportunity to build a trailer out of an Acura NSX supercar we thought, ‘Why not?’” said Justyn Bobinski. “There was no hesitation from the passionate associates at the Performance Manufacturing Center (PMC), ADC fabrication or the rest of our Honda of America Racing Team (HART) in supporting this unconventional idea.”
