The first BumperCam, an ancient Kodak bolted to the rear bumper of a LeMons Volvo, took good photos but its large size made it vulnerable to crash damage. Not so with BumperCam II, survivor of three punishing races!
LeMons history was made in Arizona this weekend, with Eyesore Racing the first-ever team to take the overall win twice.
It's a chilly morning here at Firebird International Raceway, and the surviving 18 or so cars have returned to the track to duke it out for the prospect of LeMons glory.
No surprise here: the first session of racing in Arizona ended with Eyesore Racing on top of the standings.
Everyone figured that Eyesore Racing's Ghettocharged Miata Miata would be the car to beat at the Auction Weekend Gavel-Tap, and that's how it's sorting out.
Day one of the Auction Weekend Gavel-Tap 24 Hours Of LeMons, and the heaps are on the track! I'll do my best to provide updates as the day progresses, depending upon the whims of desert internet access.
The crazy storms that visited Old Testament-grade rainfall on the Southwest have left huge ponds at Firebird International Raceway. See that bush poking a few feet above the surface in the photo above? That's a 14-foot-tall tree. Careful, drivers!
Since the very first 24 Hours Of LeMons race, we've heard speculation about the possibility of a LeMons Corvette. You can get cheap beat-to-hell C4s, sure... but can you get one to fit under the 500-buck LeMons budgetary limit? Yes!
