Lexus RC F takes IMSA Pole

MyDrive | Lexus – Sage Karam earned the first GTD class pole for Lexus in the 3GT Racing No. 14 RC F GT3 with a track record time and went on to finish fifth in Sunday’s IMSA WeatherTech Championship race at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park with co-driver Scott Pruett.

Karam led the class field for the first 35 laps (of 122) of the two hour and 40 minute race en route to the first top-five result for the No. 14 Lexus and fifth consecutive top-10 finish. 3GT Racing has recorded seven top-10 results this season, including two consecutive top-five finishes in the last five IMSA events.

The 22-year-old’s lap time of 1:16.563 in qualifying set a GTD track record around the 2.459-mile Canadian road course.

The No. 15 Lexus RC F GT3 started from the rear of the field after an accident during Saturday’s practice session and finished the race 12th with drivers Jack Hawksworth and Robert Alon.

The 3GT Racing team worked into the night Saturday to get the No. 15 Lexus fixed and ready to compete in Sunday’s race after missing Saturday’s qualifying session. Hawksworth led Sunday morning’s warm up session with the second quickest lap of the weekend (1:16.593).

The Lexus RC F GT3s next compete at Lime Rock Park in Lakeville, Connecticut on Saturday July 22.
