My first lap in Lexus IS F at Las Vegas Speedway

My first lap around the road course at LV Speedway in IS F. Neutral handling, incredible power and Brembo brakes. 8-speed direct shift auto transmission changes gears in .1sec. Even though I love manual gearbox there is no argument that for shaving the last fraction of a second from your lap time this is the way to go. Shifts are direct, immediate and smooth, no waiting. Downshifts are just as quick with the "blip" perfectly mimmicking well executed heel-and-toe. SMG and dual-clutch trans don't compare. Plus, this is a Lexus, street ride is smooth and quiet.

A Czechoslovakian survivor from Canada, now in the US. Difficult to find even in its native land. After some tweaking of the carb and brakes little Skoda is moving under its own power. Good basis for restoration.

NASCAR Racing at Las Vegas Motor Speedway
This is a compilation video from a day of racing at Las Vegas Motor Speedway with the Richard Petty Driving Experience. After a brief classroom training and a van tour around the track, they strapped each driver into a 700 horsepower NASCAR race car and let him rip around the track solo behind a pace car instructor. I was doing 136MPH in the turns.

Glendora Mountain Road Descent - Lexus IS F
After spending some time gawking at all the cool cars on display at Cars & Coffee in Irvine, I decided to take advantage of the warm Southern California weather and head to the San Gabriel Mountains for a spirited drive. At my disposal was a 2009 Lexus IS F, which is Lexus' entrée into the high performance sedan category dominated by BMW's M3 and Audi's S4. Motivated by a 416 horsepower aluminum 5-liter V8 coupled to an 8-speed Direct Shift transmission, and slowed by a Brembo-crafted braking system featuring 6-piston front calipers and 14.2-inch front rotors, the IS F certainly has impressive credentials. Photo - http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=30310289&l=a8294&id=1196206835 As the road turned up into the mountains, it was clear that the IS F had been developed on race tracks like the Nordschleife at the Nurburgring. The suspension remained composed over the bumps and undulations of Glendora Mountain Road, which due to its tight twists and turns, is enjoyable even at a moderate pace. And the rev-matching feature of the gearbox during downshifts added to the fun without upsetting the chassis as the road crested the mountain and headed downhill back into the Los Angeles basin. All in all, the IS F was an ideal companion for the trip, and I only wish it was a permanent addition to the garage. Shot using a GoPro Hero camera mounted to the passenger door.
