24 Hours of LeMons: It's not a typo...

Sweet! Now THAT'S racing. There was a similar event a few years ago. Cars under 500 pounds. Only this one was following the Paris-Dakar route! Madness! Though really it's the essence of what racing is about IMO. "you'll have to survive trials like [...] the Marxist-Valet Parking Challenge" HAHA!

Oh, man. This is great. I want to do this.

I wanted to do the Dakar one, but things didn't work out sadly. (Actually I think that one may have been cars less than 200 pound... Which means most of the cars I've ever driven would have qualified.)

Jalopnik has extensive coverage of this. It is indeed hilarious.
