Got home late last night after 701 laps to win the Lemons race @ CMP. 104 cars and the race went down to the last lap. The second car was only a lap behind and the third car two laps behind. What a race the rain definately add an interesting twist all day Sunday. Our 1986 325E performed flawlessly other than the muffler coming loose for 15 hrs of hard racing.

Nice! Congrats on the win. That's no small accomplishment in Lemons!

Any major issues/repairs along the way?

Thanks Evan

The only problem was the muffler came loose from a clamp

Thanks Bret

It is becoming more of a BMW event. There were 7-8 E30's, 1 E21, 2 E28's and yes 3 E36's. Hope to see you at the next one. I have been looking at the chump car site to see about the 24 race @ VIR but no scedule for next year do you know anything about that?

Haven't seen anything about 2011 schedule for either Lemons or Chump.

We're planning to revive the #40 325e and run some races next year for sure.

Anybody entering the race this weekend?

I'll be there to watch and support my cousin's team. They're running an e30 with the number 802.11 on the side (they all work at a networking company in Charlotte).

Should be fun.

A few pictures from last weekend. I was only able to watch Saturday, but I had a fantastic time. Makes me want to go out and by the first 500$ e30 I can get my hands on.

P.S. Tried my hand at editing these in lightroom and hopefully I didn't screw them up or overedit them....this is all new to me.

Oh yeah, and my cousins team was the slow satellite dish e30. Hope you all enjoyed passing them Smile

That 802.11 E30 is WAYYYY too clean looking to be a LeMons car. I'm sure it has issues or it wouldn't have been turned into a LeMons car, but damn......

Is the dish also a 3rd stop light?
