WEATHERTECH CHAMPIONSHIP AUTOMOTIVE PARTNER LEXUS
Lexus competes in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship with the Lexus RC F GT3., with the car making its debut at the 2017 Rolex 24 At Daytona.
Vasser Sullivan (VS) fields two Lexus entries, with one competing in the GT Daytona (GTD) class, and the other racing in GTD PRO. VS has combined to earn seven wins and 18 podium finishes in the last three seasons of IMSA competition and won the 2020 IMSA GTD Sprint Cup Championship on the strength of four wins and seven podiums that season.
The Lexus RC F GT3 also won two races, earned three podium finishes and five pole positions in the GTD class with 3GT Racing in 2017 and 2018. Previously, Lexus-powered Prototypes enjoyed success in American sports car competition from 2004 to 2009. Lexus V8 motors powered Chip Ganassi Racing to victory in 25 races, including three consecutive Rolex 24 at Daytona wins from 2006 to 2008.
Lexus began its journey in 1989 with two luxury sedans and a commitment to pursue perfection. Since then, Lexus has developed its lineup to meet the needs of global luxury customers in more than 90 countries. In the United States, Lexus vehicles are sold through more than 240 dealers offering a full lineup of luxury vehicles. The Lexus F performance story began in 2008 with the launch of the IS F sedan, and later the limited production, exotic LFA coupe in 2012. The current Lexus high performance line includes the RC F, IS 500 and LC 500. Fans can get an up-close look at F performance vehicles at the Lexus Racing Experience on-site at the majority of IMSA races throughout the season.
