Acura Motorsports announced that the new 2015 Acura TLX GT will make its Pirelli World Challenge competition debut at the May 30-June 1, 2014, Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix double-header race weekend.

To be campaigned by long time Acura Motorsports partner
RealTime Racing, the new TLX GT will move Acura into the top category of the Pirelli World Challenge, facing competition that includes the Audi R8 LMS, Cadillac CTS-V, Chevrolet Corvette, Dodge Viper, Lamborghini Gallardo, Mercedes SLS, Nissan GTR, Porsche 911 and Ferrari 458.

"The competition in the 2014 Pirelli World Challenge is incredible, but Acura has never shied away from strong competition, in the marketplace or on the race track," said Art St. Cyr, President of Honda Performance Development and Vice-President, Product Planning and Logistics, American Honda. "The 2015 Acura TLX is a true luxury sport sedan, so it is fitting that the car be raced against several of its natural competitors, and even some up-market brands, in the Pirelli World Challenge."

"In our 27 years of racing Hondas and Acuras, we have developed a clear understanding of what it takes to win races and championships," said RTR Team Principal Cunningham. "In 2014, the Pirelli World Challenge GT class looks to be more competitive and diverse than at any time in the history of the series, and we look forward to the challenges that lie ahead. We will be working hard to develop the new TLX GT into a winning package. That's what we love to do."
