Lexus LFA Races in VLN Nürburgring Season Opener

Lexus LFA Nürburgring VLN 1 Race

A Gazoo Racing Lexus LFA took part in this weekend’s 4-hour VLN 1 race at the Nürburgring Nordschleife, with disappointing results.

After finishing the 20th overall in qualifying (the fastest non-German car in the race), a run-in with a Porsche 911 took the team of Iida Akira, Kinoshita Takayuki & Ishiura Hiroaki out of main event, resulting in 125th place overall.

The good news is that Lexus is continuing their involvement at the Nürburgring circuit, and this is likely a pre-cursor to another appearance at the 24h Nürburgring race in May.
