Been keeping an ear out for this to happen and now here it is. Acura just debut its ILX endurance car.
I found some interesting content about this car and just wanted to share with you guys. Enjoy!
SURVIVING THE 25 HOURS OF THUNDERHILL
It was the home stretch… the sun was still barely above the horizon and there were just a short five hours left in one of the most grueling endurance races there is. This was the hero shot: Speedhunters’ very own Edward Sandström, who had traveled all the way from Europe to help the Honda Research West team bring the brand new Acura ILX to the finish line.
Just two days earlier Edward was staring off into the horizon, looking at a circuit that he had never driven on, in a country that he had never competed in. There was a huge challenge ahead for him and the hundreds of other drivers that would be competing that weekend.
It was just as much of a challange for the mechanics and engineers as well. Many of the cars did not pass sound restrictions, so last minute modifications were made in order to pass technical inspection.
After some testing the HRW team had some cooling issues, so they did everything they could to improve airflow to the radiator.
