Lexus IS F Nürburgring 24h Race GT5 Documentary

One of the videos included with the PS3 game Gran Turismo 5 is this 30+ minute documentary detailing GT5 creator Kazunori Yamauchi’s experience driving a Lexus IS-F in the Nürburgring 24h race — get comfortable and hit play, it’s worth it:

In the end, Yamauchi-san and the World Car Award team finished 59th overall — certainly a respectable result given the car troubles and their original starting position.

(In a funny coincidence, I’ve been obsessively driving an IS F around Nürburgring in GT5 myself lately — maybe once I put in 1,000 laps, I’ll get a chance at the real thing as well.)
