Default Laguna Seca August 23, 2012

Place holder thread.

I believe Gengar and lunaC42 will be bonding with other owners and Lexus brass and pro racers and Jeff the the great LFA tech tomorrow at Laguna Seca.

Here's to seeing some great vids and pics and to hearing about the end to end luxury experience Lexus provided to the owners and their guests.

Amazing! Cannot wait to see videos and pictures of this event. Will be so exciting.

What I really want to see the most is Scott Pruett doing a full on attack lap of the Laguna Seca and see if he can beat Randy Pobst's laptime of 1:36. I really hope he does. Scott, if you are reading this, please do make it happen.

Personally, I believe he can since he knows LFA better than anyone else. Randy got the 1:36 with only one flier lap and one timed lap.

Is the green the FL car?

Any word on which pro racers or Lexus execs are in attendance?

Any other celeb owners like Larry Ellison participating?

Here's the picture, courtesy of Lexus USA.

No idea on the exact owners of the cars, but that would be the fun part for all of us to figure out

Cool! I cannot wait to see hotlap videos of the Nurburgring Edition LFAs.

I can spot Roy Mallady's silver LFA as well.

Thanks Rominl,

No Gengar mobile (sadness)

I think lunaC42's car is the black one next to the red ring Ed.

The green one has what looks like a white steering wheel so I think this is the FL car.

I would think one of the white ring cars is from the dealer in Utah.

The guy from Atlanta with the very early production silver car must be there.

I'd be willing to bet the Nurb edition in the right hands could challenge for fastest production car lap around there.

The number of LFAs morphed from 15 in the first pic to 16 in the second pic (another white car)
