Popular Post motorpunk Posted August 2, 2022 Popular Post Share Posted August 2, 2022 Dunno if this is of interest, but it's been on my bucket list for a very, very long time. 24 hours of Lemons is an endurance race series in the US for sub $500 cars, a parody of the 24 hours of Le Mans in France. I read how someone once entered a car with a paintjob dedicated to Albanian dictator, Enver Hoxha, and that for overtaking under yellow flags they sometimes weld a large steel pig to your roof. This is exactly the kind of nonsense I love. I wrote a few features on the racing and it's been pretty well covered in the media online and in print over the years. I meant to go just before Covid but, well, y'know. I really can't afford it, I can't drive for toffee, and am sending $$$ over the internet to complete strangers. And I've just realised that my helmet is non-compliant, I need new overalls and boots and that the term 'budget motorsport' is an oxymoron. In October I'm flying to Boston (Mass, not Lincs), a place I've always wanted to see, and I am going to get very drunk. Then I'm driving to New Hampshire motorspeedway to participate in two 12 hour stints with a small team of fellow idiots who have suggested a 'Young Ones' theme for the car. I think I am also going to be asked to judge the event, and will ensure that there are some British-Leyland type shenanigans to keep things lively. Details of the car and stuff to follow once I know what I'm doing. Some random pics; Wish me luck...
