With virtually every automaker cutting back on their motorsports programs, a bit of good news was released today as Acura announced plans to enter the LMP1 class for the 2009 American Le Mans racing series.

The company will enter two new prototype Acura ARX-02a race cars that were developed by Honda Performance Development in Santa Clarita, California. Racing will be handled by De Ferran Motorsports and Patrón Highcroft Racing, and both cars will make their official racing debut on March 21, 2009 at the 55th annual running of the 12 Hours of Sebring.

Acura will also continue their efforts in the LMP2 Division thanks to the support of the Lowe's Fernandez racing team.
