Lexus IS F CCS-R to Participate in 25 Hours of Thunderhill Endurance Race


Lexus IS F CCS-R

Lexus USA has announced an official IS F CCS-R team will be participating in the 25 Hours of Thunderhill, an annual endurance race at the Thunderhill Raceway Park in Willows, California.

Lexus released details on the three-driver team:

  • Jeff Westphal: Leader of the Lexus team at Thunderhill.  Jeff is well-known for setting nearly a dozen track records at tracks all over the country and has been one of the quickest drivers in his class in previous 25 Hours of Thunderhill.
  • Ken Dobson: A local Northern Californian and three-time class winner of the 25 Hours of Thunderhill.  An endurance racer by heart, the long-time competitor has raced American Le Mans Series (ALMS), Grand-Am, World Challenge along with National Auto Sport Association (NASA) and Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) club racing. 
  • Tom Dyer: A full-time competitor during the past couple seasons in the Grand-Am Continental Tire Challenge series in the ST and GS categories. He earned his first series win earlier this year at the Mid-Ohio round.

The 25 Hours of Thunderhill is considered the longest endurance race in North America, and should be a good test for IS F CCS-R — the race starts December 7th, best of luck to the Lexus team!
