This blog is a collection of the incoherent ramblings of an endurance racing team with aspirations to compete in the 24 Hours of LeMons Arse-Freeze-Apalooza in December 2008. What this blog lacks in content will be made up for in sheer entertainment as we stumble our way through building and campaigning a race car.
Let's start with the essentials: drivers, crew, and a car.
Drivers: we've assembled a few mentally unstable individuals with varied backgrounds and levels of experience. We're united by an affinity for driving and tinkering.
Crew: we found the most qualified crew we could, then realized that those guys are way too serious. So we traded up for a guy who can tailgate like no other. As a bonus, he's good with the hammer and bailing wire. We think we've got all the bases covered.
Car: ah yes, car. Here she is, in all her glamour:
This fine example of German engineering and style has a mere 170,000 miles on the odometer. Soon it will be transformed into a panda racing machine. We'll detail the car acquisition story and race car build in future posts.
Stick around or subscribe to the RSS feed for more entertainment as the car is transformed and eventually campaigned.
