The first-ever Laissez Les Crapheaps Roulez 24 Hours Of LeMons took place at No Problem Raceway in Louisiana last weekend, and we saw Toyota take the break the tie with Mazda for most races won.
That's right, Toyotas have now won five LeMons races, versus just four for onetime champ Mazda. Will Toyota use this fact in their advertising? They should! Also worth noting is that not one of the six teams running Datsun/Nissan Zs was able to place higher than the existing LeMons Z record of 8th place, though Low Budget Racing's 280ZX was able to tie Team CC Canada's 300ZX. In fact, no Nissan product has ever placed better than fifth at a LeMons event; maybe your Nissan could break the record!
We saw a higher percentage of cars blow up on the track (or, in three cases, before even reaching the track) than at any prior LeMons event, which meant a very uncrowded track for the survivors. We also saw the People's Curse winner flee the track for the first time, leaving us to substitute a dead BABE Rally car in its stead.
