Eyesore Racing attempts to turn 24 Hours of LeMons into plane racing

This past weekend saw the 24 Hours of LeMons head off to Northern California. The racing circuit of choice this time around? Thunderhill. In fact, it was one of the first races utilizing the new full length course at Thunderhill, which clocks in somewhere around five miles. That’s a whole lot of track, which means a lot of crappy cars are competing for many corners.
One of the best known teams in the sport is Eyesore Racing, and they apparently had an interesting weekend, as you can see above. The driver was fine but the car needed a bit of mending due to some cracked up suspension bits.
Head into the LeMons forums for the full story…

    1. He saw a yellow flag in the distance, paniced and jammed on his brakes. To make flag violations enforceable and to allow people to finish passes in progress when the yellow flags come out, the course caution starts at the flag (it used to be when you first saw the flag, but that leaves a huge grey area for dinging people for passing under yellow). So, Eyesore was doing what should have been a somewhat reasonable thing, and was continuing to race until they hit the flag. The Camaro did something rather bad under either set of rules. (AIUI, yellow flags mean "calm down, and get in line in an orderly fashion so you can safely navigate a section of the track with an unexpected obstacle.")
      EDIT: At 0:33 in the video, you can just see the yellow flag at the station on the inside of the upcoming turn. (Also, the above was gleaned from reading the LeMons forum thread.)
