Tsunoda will be taking to the track at September’s showpiece run in the Honda NSX GT3 Evo, with the Japanese racer admitting he was more than excited to be going behind the wheel of the “race-winning” machinery.

"I've never driven at the Nurburgring before, so I'm really looking forward to the event in September,” said Tsunoda. "I can't wait to drive around it in my Honda NSX GT3 Evo, which is an incredible car and a proven race-winning machine at the highest level of GT3 competition.

“The Nordschleife is a legendary circuit, I just experienced it on the Gran Turismo videogame and already enjoyed it a lot.”

Before he turns his attentions to his showrun duties, Tsunoda will have his sights set on AlphaTauri’s next race in Austria, as he looks to lift them up from last place in the constructors’ standings at the second Sprint weekend of the season.
