Lexus is gearing up to make a two-pronged assault on this weekend’s Nürburgring 24 Hours with the Gazoo Racing Lexus LFA and the phenomenal Gazoo Racing Lexus LFA Code X.
This year’s event marks the eighth 24-hour endurance challenge at the infamous Nürburgring for Lexus and its affiliated Gazoo Racing team. And as ever, the drivers and mechanics are pulling together to make it a race to remember.
Lexus announced its intention to race again in the Nürburgring 24 Hours when it displayed the pair of modified LFAs at the Tokyo Auto Salon tuning show early in the year. Final evaluation of the cars was then made through Gazoo Racing’s participation in two separate endurance races in the related VLN series during the month of April.
This year’s Nürburgring 24 Hours schedule begins with the first qualifying session on 19 June at 18:45 to 23:00, followed by the second qualifying session on 20 June at 10:15 to 12:15 (all time CET). The race itself takes place over the Saturday and Sunday.
Gazoo Racing plans to stream coverage of the race on its official website, and we hope to bring you a full event report next week.
