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.

  1. Now as nice as I thought it would be ... but I'm looking forward on it !
  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 http://www.eurosuperstars.com/Superstars-Series/Standings-and-Results/results.aspx?id=6
  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. Also, Kevin, an important note: the picture atop this story isn't of the MN Motorsports IS F, but that of the Maurer Motorsport IS F that is even further behind in development than the MN team's car. This story I wrote for my.IS might help clarify this whole convoluted mess: http://my.is/forums/f47/phoenix-rises-yet-again-lexus-f-goes-racing-europe-429688/
    • Thanks for the article link & the photo correction, Joaquin -- I've updated the story to include both.
