Acura Motorsports has confirmed it will collaborate with ORECA [Organisation Exploitation Course Automobiles] for its Acura ARX-06 LMDh prototype.
The manufacturer will also continue its partnerships with Meyer Shank Racing and Wayne Taylor Racing to campaign hybrid-powered Acura entries in the 2023 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.
“It is a pleasure to announce we will continue our association with ORECA into the new, electrified LMDh era,” said David Salters, president and technical director of Honda Performance Development, the North American racing arm of Acura Motorsports. “We’ve enjoyed a very successful partnership with ORECA in the current Acura ARX-05 program, including winning the IMSA DPi Manufacturers’ Championship in both 2019 and 2020; and IMSA’s Michelin Endurance this season.
“We expect the technical challenges of LMDh to be great, and competition among all of the manufacturers and teams to be intense. But that’s why Acura and HPD are involved in motorsport. Together with ORECA and our excellent partner teams, we’re truly excited to be a part of IMSA at the dawn of the LMDh era,” he added.
