The newly developed 2017 Lexus RC F GT3 race car has scored a victory in its inaugural professional race, with Dominic & Mario Farnbacher taking first overall in this weekend’s VLN Round 9 race at the Nürburgring.
“I cannot believe what we managed today,” Mario Farnbacher said.
Dominik Farnbacher added: “The collaboration between Lexus in Japan, Toyota in Cologne and our team was perfect. The prototype we used for the first time today was almost all-new and it still can be driven to be more comfortable.”
Lexus restarted the RC F GT3 program after the initial vehicle did not perform up to expectations — the new 2017 RC F is a brand new effort, with further development & testing planned over the coming months.
(An excellent start, congratulations to the Farnbacher Racing team and all the people responsible for the new car!)
