Topic: So This Isn't the Pinnacle of Road Racing

This is embarassinig.  I've done three races and I didn't know this.  I just got an email from Jay Lamm, and long story short, this ISN'T the 24 Hours of LeMans.  I coulda swore with the level of sophistication I've witnessed at work in these cars they HAD to be LeMans cars.  I thought "Index of Effluency" was simply a persistant misspelling of the prize's name.  A french misunderstanding of the English interpretation or something.

So it's Lemons, huh?  Or should I say, Lemons, or is it Citron?

God, this is embarassing.

Re: So This Isn't the Pinnacle of Road Racing

Well, it is really awkward when you run into a proper 24 Hours of LeMans driver at a race track in Vegas and have to try and explain you race in a satire of hers. "LeMon" does not translate well to French but "$500 clunkers trying to make the finish before falling apart" seems to come across decently.
