Long Beach, Calif., April 14, 2016 -- Lexus will have a special RC F racecar on-track between races at the 42nd
Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach this weekend.
The RC F GT Concept is a track car positioned between a street-legal RC F production car and the full-bore RC F GT3 racecar that will soon compete in IMSA’s WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. The GT Concept was developed in parallel with the RC F production car by the Lexus Development Center in Japan with support from the Lexus International Motorsports Group. The car appearing at Long Beach is a further development of the RC F GT Concept that Justin Bell drove to 5th
place in the Time Attack class at the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb in June 2015.
