Three Acura entries, including two versions of the redesigned 2018 Acura TLX, will compete in this year's Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, marking Acura's sixth-consecutive appearance at the event.

Acura NSX, last year's Pikes Peak Time Attack 2 Production Class winner, will return this year with a few GT3-inspired modifications to compete in the Time Attack 1 Class with driver James Robinson behind the wheel. Joining the NSX will be a turbocharged, 500-horsepower Acura TLX A-Spec, piloted by Nick Robinson, in the Exhibition Class. Rounding out the Acura Trio, Peter Cunningham will compete in the Open Class, driving a modified AWD TLX GT.

Acura engineers have modified all three entries to deal with the grueling course and thin oxygen of the 4,720-foot run up to the summit at 14,110 feet.

More than likely, Acura's expanded presence in this year's Pikes Peak event is a result of the carmaker's increased enthusiasm for racing, which Acura vice president and general manager Jon Ikeda has defined as core in reestablishing Acura as a luxury-performance brand.

The annual Pikes Peak race in Colorado is set for June 23rd. Offering several competitive classes for cars, trucks and motorcycles, this is its 95th running.
