    Why is Daigo getting points for Lexus if he’s driving a Toyota Soarer?

    I believe they have a Lexus SC that was picked up in the US and was part of the flood damage vehicles. So converted to RHD? If you search back to the last page under Daigo, it shows the vehicle being tested in Japan but still has Lexus SC 430 badging.
