Jeff “Speedycop” Bloch is arguably the most famous competitor in the history of the 24 Hours of LeMons. Not because he wins the race (although he does have one overall win to my knowledge) and not because he’s been my teammate on a few occasions, but rather because of the unique “Class C” cars that he builds. From an “upside-down” Camaro to the infamous Spirit Of LeMons, Speedycop is always looking for a way to race something that’s never been raced before.
His latest announcement won’t disappoint his fans in the slightest.
This Bell OH-58 “Kiowa” will be themed in tribute to the movie Predator and the iconic line “GET TO DA CHOPPA!” Like the Spirit Of LeMons before it, this Bell helicopter will be forcibly mated to a Toyota Van chassis. The engine and transmission are currently TBD but Jeff is looking at Previa mechanicals for that.
Speedy’s hope is to somehow get The Governator himself involved and to raise some money for a Marine Corps charity. You’d be a fool to bet against him.
