Toyota has announced that its Gazoo Racing Lexus LFA placed first in the vehicle’s class at the 40th 24-Hours of Nürburgring endurance race in Germany this weekend. A Toyota GT86 also finished first in class.
Out of 169 participating vehicles in the finals, the LFA (car no. 83) driven by Takayuki Kinoshita, Akira Iida and Juichi Wakisaka placed first in the SP8 class and 15th overall.
The GT86 (car no. 166) driven by Hiroaki Ishiura, Kazuya Oshima, Takuto Iguchi and Minoru Takaki placed first in the SP3 class and 46th overall. A second GT86 (car no. 165), driven by Masahiko Kageyama, Kumi Sato, Yoshinobu Katsumata and Minoru Takaki, placed sixth in the SP3 class and 65th overall.
And the GT-86 no. 200 won the V3 class! ;-)
Gazoo and Gemballa Racing were my two favorite teams. Bad luck for Gemballa but I was glad to hear that Gazoo were very good :)
Can’t wait for 2013 to be honest :D
When will nexus or any partner launch a LFA GT3??? This is why they should.
