24 hours of LeMons webcast this weekend!
Looks like a good race!  I've been looking for a video of one of these for a year

"Bored silly this weekend? One of the teams entered in LeMons South Spring says they'll be webcasting live from the race, presumably so you can watch them crash in real time. The URL is:

http://www.ustream.tv/channel/24-hour-lemons-south

Their webcast is supposed to go live Saturday morning; check it out, and lemme know how it looks--Cheerz, JL"

RE: 24 hours of LeMons webcast this weekend!
I have a good friend who has raced in several of these. Quite interesting. If nothing else, go to the Lemons site and read the "Prices and rules". Imagine yourself at such an event with your car all nicely prepped for tech inspection. The tech inspection team arrives, dressed as British Lords with white wigs and robes, and they will decide your fate.

Formula One could learn a lot from this event. Bad behavior is punished in various ways. Sometimes a competitor is sentenced to 30 laps in which they must follow a VW microbus around the course. These have been known to reach the unthinkable speed of 30 miles per hour. Of course the race is stil under green flag conditions, so you might lose a lap or two or more... Other times, depending upon the spectators' whim, the offending car may be fed to a crusher.

Madness has its toll.  Please have exact change.

Is it a KERS 5-series? 'Cause I don't recognise the driver :-D

I like good looking cars, too.

There are some rules we could do with in F1.

1.1: Organizer Decisions: Organizer's decisions are final. If you don't like it, tough. Get your own race.

2.4: Whiner Eligibility. Whiners are not eligible to compete. If you believe that you might be a whiner, please check with a domestic partner, guardian, or health-care professional before getting the rest of your team kicked the hell out of the race.

6.1: Individual Lousy-Driving Rule: Lousy driving--which includes, but is not limited to, unnecessary contact, overly aggressive driving, chopping off other cars, unsportsmanlike conduct, lack of car control, just generally being an idiot, and/or proving an undue pain in the butt to fellow competitors--will result in a black-flag penalty for Lousy Driving

2.4 would exclude about half of the current F1 grid!

I have some in-car from our entry in the 2007 event at Altamont. I should clean it up and post it online...

Yes, please post the video! It would be great to get an F1 Weekly entry next year.

From a driver's report: A few more penalties:
  1. For passing under the yellow - fox urine poured into the back seat
  2. Having to write "We will not go 4 wheels off" on the car 100 times with a sharpie
  3. Having pylons and tires riveted to the car roof
For the full report with photos: http://www.rmsolo.org/forums/showthread.php?p=51223
