New Lexus RC F GT3 Racing Car

The new race car RC F GT3 takes part in championships in the USA and Japan, as well as in a number of European competitions.

In 2017, the Lexus brand strengthens its presence in the world of motor racing with the RC F GT3 sports car, designed to strengthen the brand’s reputation as a manufacturer of powerful cars for a growing number of racing fans around the world.

The new model RC F GT3 2017 received a homologation of the International Automobile Federation FIA and is declared to participate in racing competitions in the United States and Japan, as well as in individual races of European championships.

In the US, two Lexus RC F GT3 race cars were provided to the 3G Racing racing team serving in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship series (GTD class).

In the Japanese Super GT series (GT300 class), two new Lexus RC F GT3 sports cars are announced for the LM corsa team.

In Europe, two teams – Farnbacher Racing and Emil Frey Racing – which have already performed in the VLN endurance races series on the RC F GT3 prototypes, will continue to tune the car this season in order to move to future performances in European GT3 competitions level As part of this work, the teams will come out in 2017 at the start of a number of European races, including individual stages of the International GT Open international series.

In 2016, Lexus became the first Asian automaker to win the VLN Endurance championship race at the Nürburgring North Loop. Success was achieved by the prototype RC F GT3, which, on October 8, 2016, was awarded the overall victory in the VLN9 race.

Also last season, Lexus managed to achieve outstanding results on another race car based on the RC F coupe, the RC F GT500. Heikki Kovalainen and Kohei Hirate, who spoke at the RC F GT500 version 2016 for the SARD team, throughout the past season kept the lead in the Japanese Super GT series and won in both the individual and team trials in the GT500 category.
