AiM GT enters DTM in 2024 with Honda NSX GT3
In 2024, the field of vehicles and participants in the DTM will become even more diverse. AiM GT from Chemnitz is planning to enter the traditional racing series, which has a special reputation worldwide and has established itself as a top GT racing series even in its third year with GT3 regulations and in the first year after the ADAC took over the brand rights. The Saxon team plans to enter two Honda NSX GT3s in the racing series. The Honda would make its debut in Germany's most popular racing series in 2024 in the fourth DTM season with GT3 regulations.
The Honda NSX GT3, which competes in the USA under the Acura brand name, has been active in international GT racing since 2017. For the 2022 season, the car received an Evo package. The final assembly of the GT3 cars takes place at JAS Motorsport in Milan. Although the vehicle is rather exotic in Europe, teams have already been able to score many race victories and championships with the NSX. For example, the car has already won the title in the GTD class of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship twice. The car has also won titles in the Japanese Super GT Championship.
The team, which was founded by Frizzi Arnold, plans to take the promotion of young talent to a new level in the DTM. At talent scouting sessions in autumn 2023, the ambitious racing team wants to put together the team for the upcoming 2024 DTM season.
One special feature is that one Honda will be driven by a male driver and one by a female driver. Since AiM GT is a non-profit racing team, the drivers' budgets do not count in the cockpit allocation, but only their driving talent. In this way, the racing team wants to promote really talented racing drivers who would otherwise not have been given the chance due to a lack of budget.
"We are very much looking forward to our DTM programme next year," Frizzi Arnold underlines. "The DTM is a very special name worldwide and every motorsport fan knows what is behind the three letters. The fact that we will also be fielding a true rarity in the form of the Honda NSX GT3 makes it even more special. One special feature will be our driver line-up. One male and one female driver will drive each of the two cars. We will determine which they will be at our talent scouting sessions this autumn."
In addition to Frizzi Arnold, who in addition to managing the team also looks after the marketing, Björn Friedrich and Klaus Peter Melchiori are the leading minds behind AiM GT.
