And The Winner Is... The Team Endurance Karting Mazda Miata!I recall seeing a lot of Mazda ads at the Monterey Historics, thumping their chests about their racing prowess… but not a single mention of the 24 Hours of LeMons anywhere, in spite of the fact that Mazdas have now won three of the last four events (Protege, RX-7) and always contend. If Mazda's marketers had half the smarts of their engineers, they'd run a global advertising campaign centered on cars like the Endurance Karting Miata, which hung on for the win in New England today. Maybe a slogan such as "Even when it's an old beater, it will still be fast" could be a big hit, and it beats "Zoom-Zoom" by a long shot. In other big news, three of the top six cars today were Alfa Romeo Milanos! Make the jump for the complete final standings, courtesy of UDMan (and thanks to Drumhurrin for the photo above:
