Lexus Performance Driving Academy announced today the dates and locations for 2008. These are: May 9 – 11 on Autobahn Circuit, May 30 - June 1 on Auto Club Speedway, June 27 - 29, 2008 on Summit Point Motorsports Park and July 11 – 13 on Atlanta Motor Speedway.
For those who want to drive the IS250, IS350, GS460, GS450h and the IS F, Lexus offers basic sessions on Saturday and Sunday. The Japanese manufacturer offers these lessons for free but if you want to upgrade to the "Ultimate" session that puts you at the wheel of the IS F for half a day and which costs $295.
For those who don’t know the Lexus IS F is powered by an engine capable of developing 416 hp while the sprint from 0-100 km/h is made in under 5 seconds. The IS F represents the response from Lexus to the Bmw M3 Sedan and Mercedes C63 AMG .
