Wow! Totally want! Beast status! This is what you get when you throw in the V8 from the IS-F into the new Toyota 86, then have a skilled Super GT driver like Max Orido behind the wheel.

Love the sound of this V8! I still wish the IS-F came in a manual, I would rock one and put my IS300 to rest. lol

Overall, it was a pretty good turnout! It wasn’t too crowded and not to overwhelming either.  It was nice enough to walk around and hangout with some friends.  I mentioned it wasn’t overwhelming, but there were tons of 2nd gen IS’ along with hella IS-Fs.  I even witnessed a SC spin out and hit the wall on the 1/8th track. Didn’t get it on video, but did get the aftermath on camera.

Met some cool folks too! Made new friends and called it a day!

My girlfriend’s sister was there and won some Eibach springs. lol Pretty shocking since she *cough* found *cough*  the raffle ticket on the ground.

Here are some photos, hit the jump for more photos.

Toyota Motor Company announces that it will be entering the 24 Hours Nürburgring endurance race. Here is the following press release:

Tokyo—TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION (TMC), which views motor sports as an ideal medium for conveying the dreams and excitement associated with motor vehicles, announces that it will continue to promote motor-sports activities as a key means of bringing more joy to people through automobiles.  TMC’s effort this year will not only reinforce its support for motor sports, but also bolster its grass-roots motor-sports activities, thereby creating more opportunities for people to easily experience the joy that motor vehicles can offer.

Motor Sports
In Japan, TMC will seek to win its second consecutive title in the Super GT GT500 class with the Lexus “SC430”, following its victory last year in both the driver and team categories.  TMC will also continue to supply engines to the Japanese championship Formula Nippon, the top category of formula car racing in Japan, with the goal of recapturing the title with a Toyota-powered car.

In the United States, meanwhile, TMC will race the Toyota “Camry” in the NASCAR pinnacle Sprint Cup Series.  TMC will also aim to win the Nationwide Series, where it has won the manufacturer’s title two times in a row along with winning its first driver title last year.  This year TMC will again race its Toyota “Tundra” in the Camping World Truck Series, hoping to extend its winning streak after having already won the manufacturer’s title for four consecutive years.

Grass-roots Motor Sports
TMC will enhance its support of consumer-participation motor sports through its GAZOO Racing1 activities, which are designed to spread the joy and dreams that motor vehicles offer.  A number of programs will be held at the Fujispeedway Motorsports Dream 2010 in late March, and TMC will incorporate feedback from participants to improve the programs and increase opportunities for even more people to participate.  In addition, TMC will enter the Lexus “LFA” in the 24 Hours Nürburgring endurance race2 for the third time.  Competing in this grueling race directly will allow TMC to toughen its vehicles, while the hands-on participation of TMC personnel will also help foster the caliber of personnel needed to create outstanding vehicles.

TMC will also continue the Toyota Young Drivers Program (TDP), which aims to train the world-class drivers of the future.  This year the program will assist eight drivers, including Kamui Kobayashi, who is expected to make great progress this season.

Furthermore, to promote environmentally friendly motor sports and to improve the efficiency of hybrid systems (including those for production vehicles), TMC will continue developing hybrid systems for motor sports.

Beautiful!
