Videos from last November's LeMons race here in Texas. I was providing support for the race (supplies and parts runs, cooking, video coverage), but I'll probably race in the upcoming race in a few months, which is a REAL 24-hour race (not two eight hour sessions on two days). The team's car MIGHT be reliable enough by then.

The car is a Mitsubishi Mirage with a Galant engine crammed into it. If they can get it to run at full power reliably and consistently, then they can start dialing in the Volvo performance suspension that they bolted into it. The car has A LOT of potential with it's bigger engine, but last race, it was a fidgety mess with drops in power coming out of turns from both fuel and wiring issues.

On the first day, it blew an oil pressure sensor and the driver didn't pay attention to the gauges and seized the engine. They spent the rest of the day swapping engines from one they pulled from a $500 Craig's List car, and had it installed and running right as the first day's race was ending. The second engine, with well over 180,000 miles, proved to perform a little better.
