Lexus LFA Finishes 15th Overall in 24h Nürburgring Race

Lexus LFA Places 15th overall

In the 24 Hours of Nürburgring race this weekend, The Gazoo #83 Lexus LFA placed 15th overall & 1st in the SP8 class.

Drivers Takayuki Kinoshita, Juichi Wakisaka, and Akira Iida guided the LFA to its best-ever finish in this day-long endurance race, running at a smooth and steady clip that saw only one extended pitstop to replace a damaged front bumper.

Here are some photos that Lexus Europe shared with me, starting with an extended look at the three Gazoo Racing entries (one LFA, two Toyota FT 86s):

Next are these photos from the qualifying rounds late last week:

And finally, photos from this weekend’s race:

(Have to send out some very special thanks to Danny Chen over at Lexus Europe — he was the source for all of my information and photos this weekend, and did a great job with his updates.)
