Sorry I didn't meet more people, but it was a blast. Met the nice lady with black lfa from PA, I think Mitzi? I have the white N Ring. I was actually trailing someone in a white car and watched them go 4 wheeling. shewww......
Had a blast, i was the one that posted fastest lap in autocross and got the last ride with Akio in race car, unreal is all i can say!

And I was told all the filming was for a video they were planning on making for Lexus youtube channel.

Welcome to this board. Great to have another LFA owner on this board.

She just posted above you (lunaC42)

p.s. Please post some pictures of NE LFA.

Looking forward to seeing all of the video footage. It is a great promotion for the brand with the owner Toyoda himself giving rides to LFA owners (along with two best of the best pro racers Scott Pruett and Kinosheita). Also, great to hear it also ended up becoming a great LFA sales event as well.

Several angles of my *** whooping by Mr. Pruett and Toyoda-san. And my off-roading :/. Will keep in touch.

Rolla

When I looked at the pic of the Gazoo car with the guys all around it, Mr 003 and 499 may be the eight person from the right of the folks who are standing

More importantly, which one is the never seen in public Gengar?

Yeah, he kind of looks like him, but from what people have been saying who were present there that he was not there.

Regarding Gengar's LFA, I remember seeing pictures of the blue LFA with the NSX a while back.

Don't forget Javier Quiros who showed up. I don't think he gave any hot laps, but he's another talented driver who was instrumental to the development of the LFA. There was also another Japanese driver, but I didn't catch his name. I got a picture of Javier and Akio (on the left) along with that driver and some other owner guests (you can tell how hard it was to get any good video/pictures that day just because of all the audio/video staff doing marketing fluff for Lexus):

All the stuff I overheard on Tues/Weds is starting to come back to me - guess it shows how out of it I was! I believe the sunset orange was actually sold to Javier Quiros as his America-based LFA (his original #14 is back in Costa Rica). I don't know if you got a chance to meet with him, but like Scott Pruett and Akio Toyoda, he's one of the nicest guys you'll meet.

Ofcourse, it would be expected since you own the "King of Nurburgring"

Do you happen to have a video of any of your laps in the NE LFA?? Would love to see it.
