Lexus LFA on Special Stage Route 5

At the final day of the AutoIndustriya.com Gran Turismo 5 Challenge at the Manila Auto Salon, contestants found themselves behind the wheel of the supercar from Japan, the Lexus LFA on Special Stage Route 5.

Leading the pack was Aurick Go with a time of 1:31.XXX, stitching together the cleanest lap on the tricky street circuit. The LFA proved to be a challenging car on SSR5, given the power and the slippery surface, but Go's time stood, and for that he was able to win a scale model of the Lexus LFA from Lexus Manila.

In second was Ian Ng Figues, who was able to accomplish a time of 1:33.089, followed by Jason Chuang in third place with a time of 1:33.972. Rounding out the Top 4 for day 4 was Jose Paul Arellano with a time of 1:34.183.

The Top 4 qualifiers on the last day qualified for the Top 16 Tournament Battle that took place later that afternoon.
