Konichi-wha?! LeMons Team Announces Multicar Effort with Mind-Melting Vid

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PthVIL9YHR4[/youtube]The 24 Hours of LeMons and its participants are world nationally renown for not taking themselves too seriously. Then again, is it even possible to take oneself seriously when racing $500-and-under Pick-n-Pull escapees?
Anyway, the team that calls itself Driving While Awesome is getting kinda serious by deciding to field not one but two cars in an upcoming race. Sure, it’ll mean twice the expense, twice the headaches and twice the busted knuckles (The lowercase “k” indicates I am most definitely not referring to Justice Lieberman’s walking kielbasa.), but it also means twice the chances to win. Plus, LeMons Chief Perp Jay Lamm seems to be totally on board with it, if the subtitles are to be believed.

    Fantastic work, japanese gameshow voiceover – GENIUS! Looking forward to seeing both cars out there, almost busted a gut when the cars punched through the cardboard crowd.

      They need to offer funny warnings with these videos. I've been sick recently, so I was laughing and hacking away by the end of the vid.

    I must express my surprise that after looking at the frightening driving shown in the video, someone thought "This needs twice as much bumping and grinding. And explosions! Lots of explosions!"

    Greatest. Video. Ever.
    I really hope I can make it to the American Irony race this April. My life will not be complete until I have witnessed a LeMons race.

      If at all possible, get there on Friday to see the teams go through BS. That's when there are more costumes, antics and cars still running.
      You'd be surprised how many people end up doing major work overnight on Friday.
      The first ~3 hours of the race are worth watching, b/c the track's crowded, no one knows what they're doing and the woefully unprepared cars are biting the dust left and right.
      After that it's best to transition to the pits and penalty box to see what's coming in on the hook and what mockery of justice Lieberman and Murilee are dishing out. Obviously, the curse is not to be missed.
      As things wind down on Sunday, the track action heats back up, as the red mist descends and ball joints get loose. Nothing quite like watching people knock off lap after lap with nothing but 3rd gear.

        If and when I ever make it to one of these affairs, I'll remember this sound advice. It's gotta be a real hoot to see one of these spectacles, much less participate in one. Too much fun.

        With a sales pitch like that, how can we say no? Between the video and your advice, I feel like a moth looking at a flame!

    I haven't seen Avatar yet. Now I don't think I will. After this production everything else will just seem second rate.
