At LeMons South, the top two cars were Mazdas and the next two were Chevrolets. Light weight and power versus torque and reliability, with the former winning by a nose (the spread between the first-place RX-7 and the 4th-place Camaro was only four laps. We'll be putting up our traditional Uber Gallery (with an individual gallery of photos for each car that manage to put tire to track) pretty soon, so keep checking back!
