Exclamation Lexus Performance Driving Academy IS-F

Greetings,

My name is Ryan and i'm the Editor/Events Coordinator of fellow Internet Brands website, Club Lexus. I am extending any invitation for you guys to check out and drive the new IS-F in person on the track. I did get the approval from the site admin to post this here.

-----------------

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.

Event Dates & Locations

May 9 - 11, 2008 Autobahn Circuit - Joliet, Illinois
May 30 - June 1, 2008 Auto Club Speedway - Fontana, California
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.

You are invited to experience new IS-F. Space is very limited. Please use this invitation number for priority registration to the event. LP51285043. Once this code is exhausted, you will be placed on a wait list.

To register, you must be at least 21 years old and licensed to drive:

An FAQ to the event:

We'll see you on the track!

Yup. "Only Lexus can deliver".

I would attend but I don't want to be annoyed to death by the constant paddleshift beeping.

(And you guys aren't doing it in WA )

I went to one of the Taste of Lexus events a few years ago, and they did a very nice job. This seems like it will be much better than the Taste of Lexus event. If anyone has the opportunity to go, jump on it! Unfortunately, this event isn't coming to a location near me.

Hey Ryan,

Thanks for posting here. I signed up for the Ultimate event at Atlanta.

Just to confirm, I am a Kanadian with a Kanadian driver's license. Will this be OK?? Please let me know.

Cheers.

EDIT: Changed to Atlanta as I forgot I was attending a wedding during the Summit point event, I hope that I will be turning right AND left.

Should not be an issue! As long as you're licensed to drive i don't see why not.

Thanks.... Is there anyway I can document this? I would hate to travel 1000 miles and get turned away because my driver's license is from a Kommunist country....

Is there a contact that you can provide?
