Coming up in less than a week is my first ever 24hrs of LeMons race. The series is loosely as a play off the famous French race; 24hrs of Lemans, but as a series with $500 cars across the US.
The organizing crew seems very laid back and when I first signed up they sent out some pretty funny notifications, check it out below (more details later in the week):
Ann Arbor MI -- Today Car and Driver reported that Nathan Pitcher, against the advice of mental-health professionals, will compete in the 24 Hours of LeMons
-- a wheel-to-wheel car race for heaps that cost $500 or less.
Pitcher's team -- the unpromisingly named "Little Lebowski Urban
Achievers" -- hits your local track on 04/20/2013 to 04/21/2013, where
therapists and junkyard operators are already standing by.
relative, on condition of anonymity, described Pitcher's family as
"...saddened but unsurprised" by the news. "Unfortunately, we've come to
expect such lapses in judgment," the source told C/D.
and relatives interested in staging an intervention and/or watching
Pitcher do something incredibly embarrassing can find more information
at Car and Driver's LeMons minisite or LeMons' race-info page.
