Lexus partner of F Performance Racing

The Lexus RC F GT3 sera enfin en action en 2016. La dernière-née de la marque appartenant à Toyota sera en piste de l’autre côté de l’Atlantique l’an prochain, via un partenariat avec la structure de Paul Gentilozzi et le nouvellement créé F Performance Racing.

Powered by a V8 of more than 500 hp coupled to a six-speed gearbox, the RC F GT3 weighs 1300 kg. The series in which we will find this newcomer has not been officially confirmed, however Lexus has recorded the arrival of a choice recruit in the person of Scott Pruett, former resident of Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates, and former winner of the Grand-Am or the 24 Hours of Daytona, and the 12 Hours of Sebring.

The program will be limited to a few events in 2016, with the development of the car being the priority for the next season, before a more complete commitment from 2017.
