Lexus Takes Top Three Spots in Super GT GT500 Class

Missed this story last week, but Lexus took the top three spots in Round 3 of the 2010 Super GT series — from Road & Track:

The GT500 class winner was the pole-starting MJ Kraft SC430 driven by Hiroaki Ishiura and Kazuya Oshima, who never lost the lead throughout the race. Joining them on the podium were two other SC430s, meaning the top three placers went to the Lexus race car.

Finishing 2nd was last years’ champion, the PETRONAS TOM’S SC430, and in 3rd place was the ENEOS SC430. It was a perfect race result for the Toyota camp in front of an excited crowd of 53,100 spectators at their home track, Fuji Speedway.

Amazing accomplishment, congrats to all the teams!

wait... is this the category that includes all those GT-R's and HSV's?! WOWWW! The HSV has a sound that I thought the LFA racers would have, but I'm assuming that it's because the LFA racers have straightpipes or something. aha Me Proud!

@tilps: Thanks! The paintjob was much needed. The Gazoo people are so lucky. What exactly is the relationship between Gazoo and Lexus?
