24 Hours of Lemons New England – The Race "Cars"

The 2012 24 Hours of Lemons New England spring race (there is also an October race) is in the books. Follow the Car & Driver blog to get the latest details on Lemons racing written by our sexy little friend Murilee Martin.  I managed to escpape my family for a few hours on Saturday and attended the race. With my limited time I managed to snap some pictures and head back home for my 4:30pm LEGO play-date with my daughter and her friend. Here is the first in a series of Lemons photo-dumps, the race “cars”.


I recently picked up a Nikon D7000 and I gotta say, I am not too happy with it. First, it won’t focus on anything that’s relativly close (my D5000 did) and looking back at the pictures I noticed that it wasn’t focusing on the right things half the time, especially when the cars were moving.

The single most fascinating vehicle on the track was this… trailer. It was eerie, mind-blowing and WTF-ish all at the same time seeing a trailer racing on the track and moving on it’s own power. The Suzuki X-90 under the trailer was very nicely comouflaged and the trailer looked like a single-axle vehicle adding more to the OMG/WTF factor. Well done gents but it still does not throw my favorite Lemons car off its podium. Coincidentally both cars where created by SpeedyCop.

Have a look through the gallery, again the pictures did not come out great.
