Yep, you’re reading that right. The 24 Hours of Lemons is going (to attempt) iRacing! Digital Lemons is out to set new lows to the quality of “racing” in sim racing. The first-ever Lemons iRacing League season begins Thursday, April 9, with two races at 9 pm Eastern/6 pm Pacific. We aren’t going to mince words: We have no idea what we’re doing and it’s all very confusing without 1993 Honda Civics and 1987 Ford Mustangs around.
The first season of races are first-come, first-served, and probably a free-for-all. That kind of hyphenated action seems likely to make for premium spectating. Luckily, Nemesis Lab will provide streaming for both opening races. Nemesis Lab has pitched in with Lemons in spite of 20 years working with Real Professional Racers™. Now, they’ve building sim-racing rigs for regular schlubs like you. We appreciate those kinds of poor judgments from people who should know better.
We’ll have information on where to watch this inevitable confluence of internet and clownshoe-caliber racers in the next day or two. For “Season 1,” all double-race nights—sprint races to start—begin Thursday nights in April at 9 pm ET/6 pm PT.
