Scott Pruett took me for a ride in the Lexus LFA(PICS!!!)

I had and awesome day; Lexus held a free event at New Jersey Motorsports Park today. Me and who ever signed up were invited to autocross. The cars we were able to drive were the ISF, IS350, IS350C, and the GC350. All of the IS cars had the f sport package on them. They ran groups every 30 minutes. Every group at the end of their autocross was able to take a hot lap in the passenger seat of the ISF and they had the new $375,000 LFA(1 0f 3 made right now and it was the only one in the U.S.). Only one from each group got a ride in the LFA and I was that lucky person in my group. Here is how i found about about the event: http://blogs.insideline.com/straight...e-invited.html
To top off the day not only did i get a ride in the LFA, but driving the car was Scott Pruett the Grand-AM points leader who drives a BMW powered prototype.

Lucky!!! I'm not much of a fan of Lexus, but that sounds like a very cool event.

The ISF is a nicer looking car than the GTR. IMO

Thats odd.

I would have thought Lexus would no longer be paying Scott to push Lexus products. Since Ganassi is no longer using Lexus powerplants in Grand Am.

Maybe Scott still has some contractual agreements to fulfill.

Lucky, I'm jealous! How was the ride? The first guy to draw in my group pulled the LFA ride ticket

Hey,

the front and the side looks great, the rear looks like a mash up between a Audi R8 and a Lamborghini Gallardo...
