Lexus' IS cars haven't quite been the 3-series-beaters the Toyota division has hoped for. They hope to change that with the release of the completely revised version, and to put their scrill where they grill is, they've announced that they're entering the cars in the American Le Mans Series' new GT2S class, placing them up against the BMW M3. The factory-backed team will field two cars, although the drivers haven't been announced. The Lexii will bow at the 54th running of the 24 Hours of Sebring. Currently, GT2S cars aren't eligible for competition at the 24 Hours of LeMans, but ALMS officials are working with the ACO on the matter as a future possibility.
