05/01/2013—Here’s something to keep an eye out for: This summer, Lexus will kick off a multi-city Lexus IS ride-and-drive tour after the 2014 vehicles arrive in the U.S. This will be a superb opportunity to get behind the wheel of the 2014 Lexus IS or IS F SPORT.
A challenging closed course will be set up at each venue, autocross style, and participants will have an opportunity to zip around in a Lexus IS or IS F SPORT with a pro driver giving tips. Other Lexus F SPORT vehicles will be on hand to drive as well. Also, Lexus will offer “Hot Laps” in the LFA and offer group prizes for the best lap times.
The events, which will be held at stadiums in several major metropolitan areas, will consist of six two-hour sessions, and attendance is by invitation. As summer approaches, talk to your dealer about the date and venue for the IS ride-and-drive closest to you, and about getting on your area’s invitation list.
Each attendee can register for a specific session, although participants are invited to stay all day (food and other amenities will be provided).
And if you can’t make it out to your city’s event, no problem at all: Your Lexus dealer will be happy to schedule a 2014 IS or IS F SPORT summer test drive after the vehicles arrive in showrooms.
