The 24 Hours of LeMons has been coming to MSR Houston since 2008, and it has become one of the toughest, most competitive tracks in the series. Out of the 80 or so cars at the third annual Gator-O-Rama inspections today, at least four are former winners and another half-dozen have multiple top-three finishes.
TTAC’s own Sajeev Mehta served as a judge on the LeMons Supreme Court bench and helped us bust numerous cheaty Miatas and Fox Fords. Here we see him wearing a costume celebrating his Indian heritage, a gift from the very culturally sensitive Brian of the Property Devaluation Fairmont wagon team.
The bunny-themed VW Type 3 has an all-woman driver lineup and at least 150 pounds of stuffed animals on the car. Like the Property Devaluation car, this is a former Index of Effluency winner.
The always-in-contention Cajun Coonasses have switched their Saturn SC from a Speed Racer theme to a Rolling Stones “Beast of Burden” theme. We’re all wondering how long those lips will survive on the track.
Looks like Keith needs to get his blood changed again!
The Lambo-doored E30 was a hit with the crowd.
Here’s tomorrow’s pace car! Don’t worry, it’s not racing.
I’m too beat to write much more, so here’s the traditional BS inspection timelapse video. Check in tomorrow for race updates!
