For the second time in a row, a BMW E30 has taken the win on laps at a 24 Hours of LeMons race. Does that mean that the E30 is an inherently superior low-buck road-racing machine? Not exactly; of the 11 E30s at the Real Hoopties of New Jersey, only four cracked the top 20. What happened over the weekend was a combination of excellent, screwup-free driving by Team Cardorks/Invisible Pink Unicorn… and a pair of lead-destroying black flags on the Alfa Romeo Milano that led for most of the race.

The Cardorks’ 325e (this three-car team also brought a pair of Acura Integras, one of which came in 6th overall and had a best lap time a full 2.6 seconds quicker than the Invisible Pink Unicorn) was actually pretty terrible, as LeMons E30s go, but the team just kept on knocking out fairly quick laps and waiting for the leader to stumble. When that happened, they made their slim two-lap lead hold until the checkered flag waved. Congratulations, Team Cardorks!
