I think the premise is to race lemony cars, the Heckflosse isn't a lemony car though, just an old one.

There is a DVD available (C&D or R&T magazine offers it). The Benz did quite well, and as I recall was the crowd favorite!

And a great time was had by (almost) all.
The race was run back in July, what took so long?
We need something like that here on the East coast. Mid-Ohio would make a great track.

The Audi diesel was at the detroit auto show.




It looked like it came right off the track.
