Super GT Round 4
The #39 Denso Kobelco SARD LC 500 driven by Heikki Kovalainen & Kamui Kobayashi scored their first win of the season at the Chang Super GT Race at Chang International Circuit in Buriram, here are the highlights:
The top four teams in the race were all Lexus, with Team LeMans Wako’s in second, Team WedsSport Bandoh in third, and Team ZENT Cerumo finishing fourth. For a written recap of the race, I highly recommend RJ O’Connell over at Daily Sportscar.
Now four races into the season, Lexus Team SARD is first overall in the GT500 class. The next race will be at Fuji Speedway in early August.
### IMSA WeatherTech Championship
The 3GT Racing #15 Lexus RC F GT3 was fourth in the GTD class at IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship in Watkins Glen this Sunday, marking the team’s third top-five finish this season.
Drivers Jack Hawksworth, David Heinemeier Hansson & Mario Farnbacher were set up for success with pole position going into the race, but a late issue pushed them back off the podium.
The No. 14 Lexus finished 13th after a mechanical issue forced the RC F GT3 to the garage on Lap 41.
