Lexus IS GTF To Make Debut at Mid Ohio
DRC Motorsports will debut their new Lexus World Challenge GT car for the Mid Ohio Speed GT Race presented by Remington. The debut will mark a culmination of almost a years worth of effort by the team to bring this car into World Challenge. The car will be piloted by reigning Touring Car champ Jeff Altenburg. This will make the 4th different car
"I've been looking forward to racing this Lexus for some time now."
The original plan was to debut a second car this weekend with Touring Car standout Robb Holland behind the wheel however time ran out to get that car fully sorted and the decision was made to only run one car this weekend.
"I, like everyone else on the team, have been looking forward to debuting this car for a long time."
Team owner Dennis Carlton says that the team plans on running the remainder of the 2008 schedule in preparation for an all out assault on the GT Championship in 2009.
DRC Motorsports would also like to recognize it's partners who were vital in the success of the program.
