Officially a Lemons Legend

Judge Murilee over on Jalopnik just posted a list of his LeMons Legends for 2009 and the Pink Pig was on his list. This is what he had to say about us:

Formula BMW, BMW 325e
An E30 becomes a LeMons Legend? In this case, you’re looking at one of the all-time legendary LeMons cars. Notice how every body panel seems to have been hit hard, repeatedly? That’s because this car is a veteran of the early races at Altamont, including the notorious “Demolition Derby” race of October ’07 and the not-much-less-brutal May ’08 race. With seven LeMons races to its credit, the Formula BMW E30 has finished 44th, 44th, 20th, 10th, 5th, 10th, and 6th during its career… and been hit approximately 8,000 times (7,997 of those at Altamont).

While I love the write-up, I do have to point out that we actually finished 44th, 44th, 19th, 10th, 5th (class win), 10th, and 5th. šŸ™‚ Our average finishing position for the 2009 races was 6.67

Thanks Niels. Unfortunately it looks like we are going to quite Lemons racing. Know anyone who wants to buy a fully prepped Lemons car for $6000? šŸ™‚
