Regular 24 Hours of Lemons charity Lemons of Love will give away a Mazda Global MX-5 Cup Race Car for the fourth year in a row. That is a Real Race Car™, of course. However, 24 Hours of Lemons Chief Perp Jay Lamm also indicated that the giveaway winner could bring the exceedingly long-named, $69,900 race car to a Lemons race to fulfill its free entry.
“Sure, toss that thing onto the track with Real Race Cars™ like a hammered ‘65 Fairlane and a Dodge Intrepid that looks like your grandfather . What could go wrong?” Lamm said. “If you do that, though, you’re going to have to add some words to the model name. Something like the Global Mazda MX-5 Cup Car Mortified Company Giveaway Gone Wrong: Lemons Edition™.”
Want more incentives? Lemons of Love is allowing ticket purchasers to name the the Mazda Global MX-5 Cup Race Car. That means that if you purchase a ticket, entrants can vote on names like Cthulhu, Lemons McLemonsface, the name of someone whose name is on a government building, or maybe someone else whose name is on a government building. Obviously, Lemons of Love don’t know what kind of pandora’s box they may open letting Lemons racers name anything.
Again, you only get to vote on the race car’s name if you purchase a ticket from Lemons of Love. Tickets for the giveaway are $100 and can be purchased here. In addition to the free 24 Hours of Lemons entry and the yet-nameless Mazda race car, the winner will take home a whole bunch of race-ready goodies. Those include a helmet, brake pads, and more stuff than we can write because words are hard. But click here for the full list written by people who read gooder.
Florida car builder Flis Performance has built the Global Mazda MX-5 Cup Race Car for the contest. The winner will be drawn just prior to the start of the 2020 12 Hours of Sebring race at Sebring International Raceway on March 21, 2020.
