Event Recap: Lexus F SPORT Meet in Canada

Lexus F SPORT Canada 2015

The second annual Erin Park Lexus F SPORT Meet happened last Sunday just outside of Toronto, and it was an event made unique by a number of reasons.

The most obvious difference from the standard car meet was the rain — it poured non-stop from start to finish. While this would kill most events, it didn’t bother the diehard Lexus enthusiasts that attended.

The meet was held at Flamboro Speedway, and that meant track time for some of the cars in attendance, including LFA #461 and multiple RC Fs:

This was also a special event in that people from all over North America attended, including Lexus Enthusiast forum administrator Mike Forsythe all the way from Miami. I asked him to share some thoughts.

The Lexus F SPORT Meet hosted by Norman Karkada and the amazing team at Erin Park Lexus was special, because throughout the rain-soaked day, there was nothing but smiles and laughter.

Unfortunately, I was unable to bring the Miami weather with me, but that didn’t stop us from having a great time. The Erin Park team went above and beyond with making all guests feel at home.

Lexus LFA #461 didn’t just make an appearance, but hung out all day and even took a lucky raffle winner for some hot laps on the wet track. Vossen distributor JRP provided two huge tents to keep us dry, and I don’t think I’ve ever seen such an amazing ratio of raffle prizes to attendees.

One of the best parts was our very own Lexus Enthusiast member corradoMR2 winning a free set of Vossen wheels. Of course, it was great catching up with my good friends Kevin and Ryan, Clark from VIP Auto Salon, Moto from Club4AG and Ben from RS-R.

Big thanks to Norman for bringing Lexus fans from across North America together, I haven’t had so much fun soaked in the rain since being a young kid, and would gladly do it all again!

Special thanks to Ryan from Kaizen Factor for all the images!
