The Top 77 Lemons of the 2010 New England 24 Hours of LeMonsS

The New England LeMons races definitely give us a different mix of cars, compared to the rest of the country: more Civics, more Subarus, fewer RX-7s. Speaking of Civics, would you believe Civics in three of the top ten positions?


The Honda Civic has always been a source of frustration for LeMons racers; the Civic is quick and handles well, particularly on a tight course such as the Stafford Motor Speedway track, but the reliability just hasn't been there. Mazda (8 wins), BMW (5 wins), and Toyota (5 wins) have dominated the LeMons Winner's Circle so far, but last weekend we saw Honda increase its total number of LeMons wins to four (Integra, Civic, CRX, Civic). Who knows, maybe this will be a trend! Meanwhile, the failure rate of LeMons Subarus has plummeted from about 95% to a more Toyota-esque level, and Alfas continue to do well at Stafford. And, hey, check out the uber-prestigious Germans: a BMW 740iL (62nd place) and a Porsche 928 (20th place).
