PostSubject: Doing Time in Joliet 24 Hours of Lemons Race - Autobahn Country Club   November 29th 2016, 11:33 am

Never heard of 24 Hours of Lemons well...
The 24 Hours of LeMons is restricted to cars that were purchased, fixed up, and track-prepped for a total of $500 or less. At most venues, the racing consists of tech inspection and track testing on Friday; long-ass endurance-race sessions on Saturday and Sunday; and breaks for sleeping, eating, and Band-Aid application every night. At least once a year, we also hold a straight 24-hour endurance race. Count on plenty of noise, prizes, water fights, and questionably civilized fun before, during, and after the track sessions. Finally, assuming you're still standing, there's the gala awards ceremony, wherein we present trophies, plaques, and winner's purses paid out in nickels.

Can read more about it on their website.

I would love to do this one day. I've seen it on /DRIVE and Roadkill and it looks like great fun to just have a cheap ass car and beat it till it dies, along with the themes people do for their cars.

I posted so if anyone wanted to go. If yall wanna do a car more power to ya!

Do not do a Miata you get 100 points deducted right away during tech, unless you are like my buddies back in VA and bribed the tech judges with booze. I think they were the first Miata in Lemons history to start the race with no negative points.
