Hot off the internet, here’s the official 24 hours of Lemons video of the New Hampshire Motor Speedway (NHMS) race that happened in late October 2022, where we MotorPunks entered in an MX5 and won a thing! Thanks to Jay Lamm, Eric Rood and the other organiser types who made our stay so memorable. Thanks to team gaffer, Tim, and fellow limeys Darryl, Steve, Chas, Ben and Jonathan. I almost certainly would have won more than just ‘Judges choice’ had you useless scrotes not held me back, mind. Same again next year? How do we get our hands on a CityRover?

I wrote a nice little feature on our antics in this magnificent race in issue 18 of Classic Modern Retro magazine (see here) and there’s a chunky ‘how to do Lemons’ feature in the forthcoming issue of Alternative Car magazine (here). A few choice pics below. Will you join us at a Lemons event in the US in 2023?
