Various mechanical troubles kept the pair of Lexus LFAs racing in the Nürburgring 24h race from placing too high in the standings, with the #14 LFA finishing 87th and the #15 LFA finishing 101st.
The race started off well enough, with #14 getting as high as 15th place, but ended up spending three hours getting its alternator repaired.
The #15 LFA had much worse luck, first getting into a crash right at the beginning of the race and then experiencing a fire near the engine, possibly an issue with the radiator:
Still, the LFAs best laps were very close to the leaders, even with the differences in class groupings, and were the fastest vehicles in their class by a significant margin.
As a bonus, here’s a gallery of shots from the weekend by Steve Kipping, who attended the race and managed to get up and close while the #15 LFA was being looked at:
