The 29th race in LeMons history took place last weekend, and we saw BMW tie Toyota for second place in the overall-win category (Mazda holds seven LeMons titles versus five apiece for BMW and Toyota).
If you're a serious 24 Hours of LeMons fan, you know that the Index Of Effluency (given to the team that overachieves beyond all expectation with an all-around terrible car) is the real top prize. Who's leading after Day One?
The weather was about what you'd expect for South Carolina in May, mechanical failures stacked up dead cars like cordwood, and the Penalty Box had plenty of clients. But some cars neither blew up nor spun out.
The Türbö Schnitzel XR4Ti has competed in several LeMons events here in South Carolina, with predictable results each time: KABOOM! Obviously, an XR4Ti must have a turbocharged Ford engine, but there's no law that says it can't be a V8!
