Lexus IS F to Race in Superstars Series This Weekend

Lexus IS F in Supercar SeriesWhen the second round of the Superstars Series Touring Car Championship kicks off this weekend with a race at the Ricardo Tormo circuit in Valencia, Spain, Lexus fans will have a new team to cheer for — Diego Romanini & MN Motorsport have entered the race with a IS F, where it will be the only Japanese car on the field.

Update: The qualifying rounds for the race have finished, and the MN Motorsport IS F has not made an appearance — which isn’t all that surprising after reading this background story from jruhi4 of My.IS.

  2. Two free practices complete and no IS-F in the time sheets. Pre Season press releases were touting a 40+ car grid but list only shows 22
  3. Indeed, qualifying numbers are now up, and no Lexus IS F. Also notable is that MN Motorsports' Mauro Nocentini's second team, MRT by Nocentini and its Chrysler 300C SRT-8 isn't entered, either.

This story I wrote for my.IS might help clarify this whole convoluted mess:
