Two RC F GT3 Top-10s at Laguna Seca


The GT3 Racing No. 15 Lexus RC F GT3 finished seventh in Sunday’s IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship race at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca with drivers Jack Hawksworth and David Heinemeier Hansson.

The driver duo had the No. 15 Lexus as high as fourth place, however damage to the grille slowed the RC F GT3 during Hawksworth’s second stint. He went on to run the second-quickest lap in the GTD class on lap 70 (1:25.786) before finishing seventh on Sunday.

3GT Racing drivers Dominik Baumann and Kyle Marcelli finished Sunday’s race in 10th-place behind the wheel of the No. 14 Lexus RC F GT3 at the 11-turn, 2.238-mile circuit. Marcelli was involved in an incident early in the race, but was able to recover and get as high as the second position before turning driving duties over to Baumann. The team however had an issue during its final pit stop and lost track position in the closing laps of the sprint event.

Lexus is the official luxury vehicle at the iconic road course with the GS F serving as the pace vehicle for Sunday’s IMSA event.

Lexus currently ranks third in the unofficial GTD manufacturer championship standings going into the final race of the season.

3GT Racing and Lexus will return to the race track at the season-finale Motul Petit Le Mans on Saturday, October 13 for a 10-hour endurance event at Road Atlanta.
