24 Hours of LeMons Car - AKA - "The HackBat Mobile"
What is 24 Hours of Lemons?
24 Hours of Lemons endurance race, inexplicably presented by Car and Driver Magazine.
This is a 24 hour endurance race. You find yourself a thrasher car, fix it up a bit (just a bit), throw in a BUNCH of safety equipment, and then drive around a track for 24 hours. It's not about speed, how many times you can circle around the track, it's about keeping your terrible hunk of junk running longer than anybody else's hunk of junk.
Apart from being hilarious and fun, the events raise money for The Speedway Children's Charities.
From the website linked above:
- 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.*
