If you thought you could go to bed after the 6 Hours of Circuit of the Americas wrapped up, HA! Ha HA! No. There’s always something to watch, and if the last thirty minutes of that World Endurance Championship race made you all hopped up on coffee and “what the crap was that?” — why not watch more racing?
Up extra late? There’s some Super GT racing going on at Suzuka right now, complete with full English commentary running. They’re about a third of the way in right now, but in case you missed the start—watching insanely modified Japanese race cars have at it is clearly worth losing some sleep over.
One of the most awesome series in Japan is set to run Round 4 at Fuji Speedway at 1:40 a.m. EDT with full English commentary provided by Radio Le Mans (does that crew ever sleep?) and the folks at Nismo.tv. Here’s the live stream. Why snooze when you can watch more racing instead?
Honda has been racing the NSX for about ten thousand years in SUPER GT and the associated paint schemes have been legendary.
Everyone has those "Initial D" fantasies of touge domination, only the fact that it's highly, highly illegal to race on public roads gets in the way.

In its 2008 debut season, the NISMO GTR finished one-two in the first two Super GT races. It was the first time such a dominant opening performance had been seen in ten years. The previous car to do it? A NISMO Skyline GTR, of course.
Epson employees took advantage of their papercraft skills and giant printers to build an impressively detailed 1:1 cardboard replica of an Acura/Honda NSX Super GT race car. Build photos of what we consider the sexiest recycling project ever below.
Here's more video of five, count 'em, five, Honda HSV-010 GTs practice laps at Suzuka. It's almost ruined by watching it. A better option? Letting the four videos run, closing your eyes and drowning yourself in the aural sex.
Honda's new enthusiasm-free corporate policy killed the new NSX, but it'll still be racing in Japanese SuperGT under the Honda HSV-010 GT name. HSV stands for "Honda Sports Velocity" in Japan and "Hybrids Sans Velocity" in the U.S.
