LEXUS MOTORSPORT IN 2010
· Lexus to compete in 38th 24 Hours Nurburgring with production LFA
· Entry of two LFAs prepared by the GAZOO Racing Team

Lexus has always considered GT motor sport to be an ideal global medium through which to
reinforce the excitement, high performance and driving enjoyment inherent in the brand.
Combining cutting-edge technology with the extremes of mechanical endurance, motor
racing plays a key role in not only fostering the peerless quality, durability and reliability which
lies at the heart of every Lexus, but also in honing the technical skills of company personnel
involved in the development of its production vehicles.
To that end, Lexus’ 2010 motor racing programme includes the entry of its remarkable LFA
supercar in the 24 Hours Nurburgring endurance race, and the defence of its titles in both the
Super GT 500 and GT 300 Japanese racing series.

consecutive entry of the Lexus LFA and, significantly, the first participation of the car in

team will make its fourth appearance at the Nurburgring 24 Hours.
The 38th 24 Hours Nurburgring endurance race will be held at the Nurburgring Circuit in the
state of Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany, between 13th and 16th of May.
