The cool thing about an auto show like SEMA is that aftermarket companies from all over America - and sometimes from out of the country, too - all get the shine they deserve.

Team Honda Research West, in collaboration with Honda Performance Development and Solo Motorsports, will be presenting a pair of Acura ILX Race Cars that are both scheduled to compete later this year at the 25 Hours of Thunderhill.

Apparently, the objective in bringing these two cars to SEMA is to give potential teams a chance to give the race cars a thorough look-around should they have interest in campaigning their own ILX racers in a racing series or two.

Full specs of the ILX Race Cars will be unveiled at SEMA so stay tuned for all of that when Las Vegas welcomes the automotive aftermarket world with open arms at the tail end of October.

SEMA’s coming, fellas. And if these ILX Racers are an indication of what we’re in store for, consider us pumped and ready to roll!

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio
