    SPDA goes to the 24 Hours of Lemons

    Wanted to let everyone know that a Team of SPDA members is headed to The Lamest Day, 24 Hours of LeMons race this coming weeking.

    We are Team Fahrfrumwinning. The team is led by Captain, SCCA Pro racer Andrew Cordeiro, From TDI Cup. The most experienced ;-) driver on the Team, Rob Stone from Rescon Racing, who has been providing training for many years. The alignment specialist Scott Murfin from Can-Alignment and rookie Ivano Di Pietro from Grindstone Motorsports.

    The car, a 1992 Nissan 240sx, it is being prepared at Can-Alignment with help from the team members and crew. Our crew members are Maurizio D, Nuwan D, Ford W and Leighanne P. This will be our first attempt at a race of this type, but we think we are ready to meet the challange. Our team members come from different Motorsports backgrounds and our crew has proven that working through the night will be easy for them.

    For those that don’t know the history of these type of events each LeMons race is for cars purchased, fixed up, and track-prepped for a total of 500 dollars or less. Twelve hours into the race, the car voted People’s Choice is called in and awarded a cash prize; simultaneously, the car voted People’s Curse is called in and summarily destroyed. The rest of the cars finish the 24 Hours and the winner gets their grand prize of $1500 in bags of nickels.

    Our Sponsors include, Greenview Irrigation, Can-Alignment.com, Rescon Racing, Grindstone Motorsports, Ponderosa Nature Resort, Partimer Signs and Insidetrack Communications

    Rob, it is a 24 hour enduro, only reason to stop is for fuel or brakes and if you get crushed. We expect to complete 850+ laps in the 24 hours.

    I assume you've done your research and are bringing lots of canadain beer to bribe the judges and other competitors with so you don't get the people's curse award. Have fun and take lots of pictures!

    The 'luck' will be making sure that I'm in the car just
    BEFORE Ivano - he can ventilate a room in a hurry.

    Good thing that we don't have a crapper in the thing :-)

    Lol, just be glad I'm not driving or else you'd have to ask for a different car :hammer:

    The track is Nelson Ledges in Ohio I believe.

    Wow! You guys are going to have fun!

    We want a full report on the race. Then we want a report of the car build - which I'm guessing is still in process! Awesome work!

    The rotting underbody and rotted hole in the rocker on the otherside, the rust covered by vinyl :-P are what you have to look at, then there is the tired engine, mmm stock 17 year old suspension need I go on. lol :-)

    The value of the car is before any safety devices, tires, brakes and lighting. If you wanted to put a value on all of that stuff the car is worth more then $500.
