[YesAuto Race] Lexus LFA racing car and Toyota GT 86s racing car will be tested at the Nürburgring 24-hour endurance race held on May 17-20.
This will be the sixth time for Toyota Gazoo Team to participate in the Nürburgring 24-hour endurance race. Its goal is to hope that Lexus LFA cars can finish the race ahead of Aston Martin and Ferrari. The other two GT 86s that Toyota used to challenge Aston Martin and Ferrari have achieved sixth place in the 40 cars in this race.
Aston Martin and Ferrari, two famous European supercar brands, may have nothing to do with Toyota's Lexus brand in green new energy vehicles, but in the coming May, they will have a showdown. The race venue is the most “hated” place of all green new energy vehicles-the Nürburgring track.
★What is the Nürburgring 24 Hours Endurance Race?
The full name of the Nürburgring 24-hour endurance race is “ADAC 24h Rennen Nürburgring”. It was founded by the all-German automobile club ADAC in 1970. It is an endurance race involving touring cars and GT models. The track layout length is 25 kilometers (15.5 miles), which allows more than 200 cars and 700 drivers to participate.
Combining Lexus with the evaluation of stability, quietness, and comfort, few people will question this, after all, Lexus is known as the Mercedes-Benz from Japan in the world. But if you compare him with a supercar with high horsepower and extreme attention to control, it will take time for everyone to accept it.
