About the Castrol Mugen NSX
The Japanese GT Car Championships were inaugurated in 1993, and are becoming more popular with motorsports buffs throughout domestic Japan. Honda has sent two of NSX into the Championships since 1997. The original monocoque made of aluminum was reinforced by roll cage, and most parts of the body shell such as front hood, fenders and doors were replaced by carbon fiber for light weight. In 1998, four of NSX were sent into the opening race.
