24 Hours of LeMons -- BMW & BMW Get Friendly...
During the First Annual 24 Hours of LeMons Buttonwillow Histrionics, August
15-16, 2009, our #88 Barbarian Motorworks Charity Case BMW E30 325es gets a
little friendly with the #65 Black Iron Racing BMW 540i on Saturday
Watch closely for the yellow flags waving just before impact. Both drivers
missed it at first -- when Black Iron saw it, they decided that a full stop
on the race track was the best course of action. On the fastest turn of the
track, while passing a car on the high side. Unorthodox? Yes, but it did
bring both cars to a full stop. Both teams pitted, fixed their cars, and
were back on track by Saturday evening.
As a side note, it wouldn't hurt if LeMons judges came down harder on teams
for proper brake lights. The Black Iron guys had simply ziptied the stock
540 brake lights to the roll cage in the trunk, about 3 feet inwards of the
rear bumper. That put them in one hell of a hard-to-see spot.
Presumably based upon the description of this event as well as supposedly
multiple complaints about their driving style, the #65 car was voted for
the People's Curse award on Sunday morning.
At the end of the day there were no hard feelings. After all, rubbing is

24 Hours of LeMons People's Curse
This is the People's Curse (Car #45) for the 24 Hours of LeMons
Arse-a-Palooza 2008 at Thunderhill Raceway in Willows, CA. Other teams
voted to have this car semi-destroyed. Jay Lamm asked the excavator
operator to go easy on it - many may have voted simply because it was fast.
The car DID return to the race an hour or two after... and was even faster with less weight! Great work

24 Hours of Lemons in a 1973 Plymouth Fury! - Roadkill Ep. 22
On this episode of Roadkill, Freiburger and Finnegan attack the low-buck
endurance race called 24 Hours of Lemons. Not content do do this ridiculous
race in a reasonable car like a little handling-oriented import, the race
car of choice is a one-owner '73 Plymouth Fury that Freiburger bought for
$200 before setting it on fire a few times and then gutting it into a race
car. The truth behind the scenes of this episode is that much of it was
shot almost a year ago, and back then the guys didn't want to air it.
You'll have to watch to see why. But now, in 2013, the story came full
circle in a way that it only can on Roadkill, and so here we finally
present the whole story.
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.
