This Porsche 914 won its Class C division in the June 2014 Return of the LeMonites race in Utah. It placed 13th overall and finished with a staggering 95 lap lead (that is 3 hours of racing) over the next best Class C vehicle. Needless to say this 914 will not be racing in Class C the next time it heads to the track, because the LeMons judges will bump it up to B or A class. But for any car to get a top 15 finish in a LeMons race, it means the car is fast and sorted.
