The Lexus LF-A running in the Nurburgring 24 is in the pits, one hour into the race. It looks like transmission issues are the culprit.
As the LF-A pulled into the pits, there were a few drips of clean, clear oil. An engineer was quick to investigate and my trained eyes and fingers told me it was transmission oil.
The team quickly pulled the car into the garage and they went to work on what looks like the transaxle.
I’m sure this race is a development drive for Lexus and we hope the unique car gets back out on the track soon.
At least the team has a nice big screen TV to watch if they end up retiring…
