Lexus RC & RC F to Race in This Year’s 24 Hours of Nürburgring

Lexus RC

Lexus RC Nürburgring Car

This is the second consecutive N24 race for the Lexus RC, and the hope is to improve on last year’s 39th overall and third place class finish.

  • Chief mechanic: Minoru Takagi (TMC)
  • Drivers: Takayuki Kinoshita, Naoya Gamou, TBD

Lexus RC F

Lexus RC F Nürburgring 24H Race

This RC F will be a collaboration between GAZOO Racing and Lexus tuner TOM’S Japan.

  • Drivers: Takeshi Tsuchiya, Kazuya Oshima, Takuto Iguchi, Takamitsu Matsui

A final note: This will be the first time in nine years that an LFA will not be racing in the 24 hour race. A sad moment, but it makes sense for Lexus to focus more on current vehicles.

Don't want any 'basic' but the regular RC looks so much more cleaner, For sure its hella slower than the F though.

This is great news i fell like the RCF needs to step up its game here and not be in the shadow of the LFA as best performing super coupe from the GAZOO team, The RCF GT3 has not produced the best result to qualify for FIA GT3 , even at last session super GT in Japan. Personally i am looking forward to see the RCF Toms edition in action.
