Exclamation Taste of Lexus Presents the Lexus Performance Driving Academy

Coming soon to a racetrack near you, Lexus will be presenting a new twist in exhibiting the all new 416hp Lexus IS-F performance luxury sedan. Unlike previous Taste of Lexus events, this event will allow people to explore the limits of the IS-F at a full fledged race track with expert driving instructors. Lexus invites you to experience the new echelon of performance and luxury.

Event Dates & Locations

May 9 - 11, 2008 Autobahn Circuit - Joliet, Illinois
May 30 - June 1, 2008 Auto Club Speedway - Fontana, California SOLD OUT
June 27 - 29, 2008 Summit Point Motorsports Park - Summit Point, West Virginia
July 11 - 13, 2008 Atlanta Motor Speedway - Hampton, Georgia


There will be two sessions offered for the Lexus Performance Driving Academy. The DRIVING ACADEMY - ULTIMATE which is a half day experience with IS-F. You will be able to experience the IS-F with one-on-one professional driving instruction and a chance to to explore the awesome power and handling. On top of that, you will be able to satisfy your lead foot with many hot laps around the track. Following the exhilarating session of track fun will be an awards ceremony for the participants. Spaces are limited and are filling up quickly for the ULTIMATE. You wont want to miss out on this special event. The other session is the DRIVING ACADEMY which is a 2 hour session which gives you time to drive the IS-F and a host of other performance Lexus models to experience.

As a Club Lexus member, you are invited to sign up for the experience of a lifetime in the new IS-F. Space is very limited.

If the code above is not working. I will provide a new invitation code soon. It is on a first come first served basis. The code will be good for any of the 4 locations listed.

without invitation code it's highly unlikely you can sign up imho

i signed up for the friday paid session. it's so much more affordable compared to other driving schools, and knowing my previous lexus experience i think this is going to be fun!

I tried the code too, and it failed. However, I went to sign up for the standby list and it ended up letting me and a buddy register and pay for the Ultimate event.

I can't wait!

For this specific event, 4 in the United States only.

However, there will be a good handful driving down from the Bay Area for this event.
