Lexus RC F & GS F to Race in Australia’s V8 Supercar Series?

As Lexus Enthusiast reports it:



Quote:
Lexus Australia is considering racing both the RC F and GS F in their country’s V8 Supercars series — from Motoring Australia:
Lexus Australia is taking this year to decide whether it wants to get into motorsport in either V8 Supercars or GT3. If it goes down the V8 path it will have to then form a team alliance, determine investment levels, resolve its technology choices and figure out how to leverage the program.
“The RC F is the logical car [to race] as we sit here right now, but it is not impossible to envisage the GS F sedan in the future,” Hanley told motoring.com.au at the Clipsal 500 V8 Supercars championship opener last weekend.
“Imagine for a moment if you had two cars, an RC F and a GS F. You could do that. It’s all new stuff. Not that I am saying that’s what you would do, because there’s a cost involved and it could be prohibitive. But the worlds open up.”
The decision to participate is expected to come for the 2017 season — in the meantime, Lexus has an agreement to provide safety, medical and course cars for the next two years.

It would be great to see both Lexus models enter the V8 Supercar Series. Gives us a better look into the performance of the cars if they start winning races. Even though I know a lot more thought and tuning is performed on these cars. I think it would be a great venture for Lexus Australia.

I love Aussie Supercars, thats true old school racing. Bash the curbs for turn in, bash the man on the outside when that fails. Corner, cut it, 2 wheels who needs 4... YES... this is what NASCAR should of been yesterday...

This is a great event. Unfortunately the track in my city has severed its contract with V8 Supercars. I missed the one and only event held here in the USA. Maybe it will be back someday...

Got to love those V8's!
They should be getting air time for all those times they catch some air
