VIDEO: What it's like to drive in the 24 Hours of Lemons
Damon went straight from racing in this past weekend's 24 Hours of Lemons to Japan to cover the 2007 Tokyo Motor Show, so we haven't been able to corner him for a recap on his experience. Thankfully Bryan McQueen from Team Santa Cruz ran the entire race with a pair of cameras in his car pointed out the front and back. His video on YouTube shows you exactly what driving on a tight course with dozens of other insane racers is like. There are no driving lines, no apexes to consider, and no strategy other than to keep going at all costs, even at the expense of taking out your competitors. It's the live action version of Carmaggedon and downright scary and thrilling to watch. Follow the jump to view the video.
UPDATE: Team Santa Cruz uploaded a new version of the video with no soundtrack, just the aural assault of beater cars slamming into each other. Check it out after the jump.
