Gazoo Racing Enters Lexus LFA in Nürburgring 24h Race

2012 Nürburgring 24h Race Lexus LFA

Some excellent news announced today — Gazoo Racing will once again be entering a Lexus LFA in the Nürburgring 24h race that runs from May 17th-20th.

Driving the car will be Takayuki Kinoshita, Juichi Wakisaka, and Akira Iida, the same driver that set last year’s record Nürburgring lap. The LFA racecar itself is sporting a new look, with a stylized spindle grille designed into its livery.

The LFA will be joined by two Toyota 86s on the Gazoo Racing team.

C'mon Lexus we already no you can win the SP-8 class I want to see if this car is capable of a top 10 finish amongst all the race Audi's Porsche's and Mecedes,if they managed that this would be a huge result for the LFA.

    Exactly, if anything they should enter an ISF in the SP8 class and move up the LFA to run with the big dogs, if Gazoo don't want to, let TMG have a go

    I already think they have gone as far as they can go with the IS-F they being TRD have a raft full of aftermarket parts for the IS-F and I have and no doubt that would have come from the IS-F's performance testing and racing at the Ring. The IS-F has been entered in SP-8 before finished about 4th or 5th in class behind the LFA's and Aston Martins last time it was run.

They should enter the ISF into the race and fine tune the next generation ISF like they did with the LFA
