Lexus For Lime Rock
Almost the only sportscar news in Autosport this week concerns Chuck Goldsborough’s Team Lexus IS 350s, for the ALMS.

The weekly magazine indicates that the cars will now make their debut at Lime Rock in July.

“We started work on this car on December 1,” says Goldsborough, “and every part that you can unbolt is made of carbon. That meant it was too much work for any one supplier.”

The team owner is at least happy that the cars will be thoroughly tested before their race debut – which wouldn’t have been the case had they appeared at Houston (or Mid-Ohio).

NB. The other news in Autosport is that the rumoured GT support series for the DTM - two 30 minute races at four events - now looks unlikely, although Michael Bartels apparently still believes that races could take place later in the season.
