THE HOPES OF Honda fans were dashed late last year when the Japanese carmaker announced it had cancelled plans for a V10-powered successor to the NSX sportscar.

However, reports this week suggest that Honda is pushing for Japan's SuperGT series to allow a racing version of the NSX to compete without also offering a road-going version.

After 13 years racing the last generation NSX and with 36 wins from 105 starts, Honda bowed out of the SuperGT series earlier this month after new rules banned mid-engined cars.

The push to field a race-only version of the cancelled NSX successor is reported to come thanks to a SuperGT project that Honda had been running parallel to the development of the new NSX.

While both projects were officially cancelled, it's believed that, following its exit from Formula 1 at the end of 2008, Honda is looking to resurrect the SuperGT race-car project.

Current SuperGT homologation rules require each team to offer a road-going version of its race car (despite the similarities being little more than the styling and the name), but Honda is reportedly looking for a special dispensation to bypass this rule.
