Born in 1927? You can drive a Ford Model A in this rally! Born in 1996? Subaru SVX!
LeMons racing is a wonderful example that setting limits can actually breed creativity. The series mandates that all entries must cost $500, not counting safety equipment, and that cap forces teams to be ingenious in how they build a racecar. Take for example this diesel-powered Porsche 911, which its creators have dubbed Ferkel the Nein-11, that will be racing in the Sears Pointless race this weekend in Sonoma, California.
This video from the 2013 Halloween Hooptiefest 24 Hours of LeMons race is the kind of scary stuff that keeps us reviewing cars instead of racing them. This driver is puttering about, carrying good speed and, from the brief recording we can see, driving quite well. That is, until another driver, who seemingly comes out of nowhere, attempts to put his front tire where the passenger seat should be.
Remember last Tuesday when we told you that a new episode of The List was going to air on Speed that night? Yeah, well... sorry about that. Scheduling snafu. But Autoblog's series is back on network television tonight after a week off for special programming.
