As the next Acura NSX edges closer to production, racing fans will get a chance to see the prototype in action on a race course not far from where the car will be built: the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.

Acura's official Twitter account this morning reports that the NSX prototype will do a lap before the August 4 Mid-Ohio Indy 200 race. You can catch it live that day at 3 p.m. ET on NBC.

That should be fun to see on the track. I'm rather excited about the new NSX, which unlike its predecessor, will be built in Ohio.

Acura has certainly produced a striking concept. While the new, all-wheel drive V6 hybrid NSX is a markedly different car from its ancestor, my hope is that it will be able to provide similar driving thrills. Acura — and Honda as well — could definitely use a home run at the moment.

I'm sorry Honda, you burned through any good will you had left.

Nissan picked up the supercar slack with the GTR which has turned into a world beater without a wallet burning price. Toyota greenlit a V10 supercar and brought it to market (at a significant loss no less) in much less time than you have spent trotting around your fancy hybrid.

Honda, you are not the Japanese standard anymore. No one cares. I mean really, you had the HSV-10 just waiting to go to market, just waiting to change the public perception.

I'll put my faith in the company that actually broke the established norm, that actually dared to dream a little and actually dared to put out a product that makes me drool a little bit.
