Chicago Area IS-F Owner Wanted For Magazine Article--FREE TRACKTIME!

Hello IS-F owners and fans. I'm the senior editor at a relatively new online car enthusiast magazine called Motive ( We've been working on putting together a comparison test and video feature with the IS-F, BMW M3, and the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG and due to some scheduling conflicts, Lexus had to pull its car out. We'd still love to feature the car in our test, which is why I'm throwing this offer out. Join us with your car for the test, let the writer drive a few laps, and your day of track time at Autobahn country club (and any gas used that day) is free and you'll also get the opportunity to experience the German competition. Furthermore, we'd love to include a sidebar review of the test through an IS-F buyer's eyes. The date would be July 9th or 10th, whichever works best. Please e-mail me at [email protected] if you're interested and thank you all for your time.

I might be able to help you out. I'll let you know in a day or two !
Wow, a quick reply from the Lexus kings of Chicago! Thanks Andy, looking forward to hearing from you.
Stu, can you give me the specifics? Insurance, and liability issues are what I need to answer to the boss's....

Unfortunately, there's not much we can do in regards to insuring your car. We're held responsible for anything that happens to the two cars we're bringing while your insurance would have to cover your car. All of us would sign the same waiver to use the track. Aside from that, all I can say is that we'd agree to fix the car in the event that our writer damages the Lexus. And it should be clear that we're not looking to abuse someone's car all day long. One of us would just need to drive the Lexus for a few laps for driving impressions, then any video or photos we shoot will be done at low speeds.

We'd be glad to give McGrath a big plug at the end of the article, if that helps.

I'm working on it buddy !! I want to do it to really get a chance to compare the M3 and C63 against the IS-F !! I'll let you know ASAP.
