The Jalopnik Bump continues for the Internet's most amusing Honda racer. Ryan Eversley has just moved over to the Pirelli World Challenge in the RealTime Acura as a factory driver.
Honda Performance Development rewarded his great performance in the Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge with the second full-time spot driving the #43 Acura TLX-GT alongside team owner Peter Cunningham in the #42 car.
The Acura is the only PWC GT car for 2015 that isn't a FIA GT3-spec car. It's converted from a four-door, all-wheel-drive sedan, which is exactly what we want to see more of in sportscar racing.
"It's every driver's dream to be associated with a manufacturer, and since I've worked alongside Honda Performance Development for the last five years, I feel like it's a natural progression in our relationship," Eversley said to Sportscar365.
Stop and behold the face of excitement. Racer has an interview up with the team, and you can practically hear the SQUEEEEE! through the computer screen.
Eversley wants to hit the ground running with his new team.
"This is a full-fledged effort with two cars, and to say that we are going to go and kick ass may be a little bit bold, but certainly our intention is to be competing in a whole different realm than we did on our debut last season," said Eversley to Racer.
In other words: SQUEEEEE! We're gonna have to make more stickers, I guess.
