Lexus IS F to Race in Superstars Series This Weekend

When 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.

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