The racing team of Iida Akira, Wakisaka Juichi, & Ohshima Kazuya overcame a first lap pitstop and a resulting fall to P143 to emerge top in its class, making this the third consecutive year the Lexus LFA has done so.

Congrats to the whole Gazoo team!

  2. @Holly: No, it means that the LFA took top spot in its class -- the race is broken up into different groups, who all race at once.
