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. LP45755072

To register, you must be at least 21 years old and licensed to drive:
http://tasteoflexus.com/performance/registration.asp

An FAQ to the event:
http://tasteoflexus.com/performance/faq.asp

If you are having issues with registering with the current Invitation code listed above, please send me a PM or send an email to

editor.clublexus@gmail.com

We'll see you on the track!
We have another one guys

I've signed up for Sunday June 29, 2008 for the 12:00pm slot.

Sign up soon, this looks to be a great event and opportunity for seat/track time in the IS-F.

Similar to the Audi experience we all have signed up for, the 2 hour session is free with an optional more intensive sessions at $295 iirc.

ULTIMATE sessions include:

And for the truly fearless, each ULTIMATE session offers you the chance to accompany professional race drivers as they take the Lexus IS F to the limit in a series of blazing fast hot laps.

At Lexus Performance Driving Academy’s Saturday/Sunday session, you’ll join a group of like-minded enthusiasts for a fast-paced, two-hour session that combines personalized, professional instruction with an unforgettable, on-track driving experience.

Your session begins with hands-on instruction in the fundamentals of high performance vehicle handling, before you go on to drive a Lexus IS 250, IS 350,
GS 460, and GS 450h through a succession of pulse-pounding laps. Later you’ll have the opportunity to experience the sheer power and superb handling capabilities of the amazing Lexus IS F. And finally, you’ll experience a thrilling hot lap in the IS F and will discover its capabilities with a pro driver behind the wheel.
• Individualized time with three professional instructors

• Pro driver hot laps in the 416 hp Lexus IS F

• Saturday/Sunday Academy session is FREE
note, not IS-F drives apparently, just hot laps...but it should be a great outing in true Lexus fashion. They hold the best overall event imho, always well catered.

I signed up for 8:00AM on Saturday. Would rather not bake in the summer sun while waiting around for my turn or fight the crowds either. I'll leave some sweaty butt stains for y'all though

I don't suppose you can get another number for us latecomers, Donny?

EDIT - I've sent an email to Ryan at editor.clublexus@gmail.com. Hopefully, he can send me another reservation #.

Numba. We need a new numba to register!

So do we get to flog the IS-F or no? Just hot lap dances.
