The "Washington DC" 24 Hours of LeMons race (held at Summit Point Motorsports Park in West Virginia) took place a couple of weeks back, and it was one of the all-time best!
When an East German car with an ill-advised Subaru/Volkswagen drivetrain swap finishes mid-pack in a 24 Hours of LeMons race, those rusty Warsaw Pact hands tend to grab the Index Of Effluency trophy and hang on for dear life.
They said— hell, I said— that a big, fat, complicated-ass Mercedes-Benz could never, ever take the overall win in a 24 Hours of LeMons race. Guess what?
How in the hell can you get a Mercedes-Benz S500 for under 500 bucks? Welcome to the world of white-elephant German luxury cars! For reasons nobody can understand, the monster Mercedes ended the first race session with a 4-lap lead.
