Are you fed up of losing at the race track, and would prefer to lose from the comfort of your own home? Are you thinking about entering a “real” 24 Hours of Lemons race, and cannot believe that the other drivers are as talentless as we say they are?
Why not join us on iRacing for the virtual 24 Hours of Lemons? (Don’t answer that, it was a rhetorical question.)
24 Hours of Lemons on iRacing consists of two weekly races, and occasional no-expense-spared-multimedia-extravaganza special events.
Lemons drivers battle it out in our two weekly series:
Contestants choose the race each week – at the end of each race, a random participant is chosen to pick the car and track for the following week. The races are 20 minutes long with 20 minutes practice and a 10 minute qualify session. It might be road, dirt, or oval but you can rest assured that the participant skill level rarely varies.
Every few weeks we host special events. These events are carefully crafted by our team of
seasoned motor racing experts Lemons racing oddballs who think that daily-driving a school bus is normal.
We’ve had Pro 2 trucks racing against Street Stock cars (surprisingly like real-life Lemons). We’ve had two-car team races where one driver’s sole job is to take out the opposition (like real-life Formula 1). We’ve had gruelling endurance events where your partner is selected entirely at random (like real-life Tinder).
To find out what the oddballs have come up with next, keep an eye on the #announcements channel on our Discord server.
You will need an iRacing membership, which is around $60/year. Some tracks and cars cost extra, but we try to make the most of free content. You will also want to install Trading Paints (it’s free) in order to see other drivers’ car liveries. Trust us, you want to see the liveries. It’s one area where Lemons racers have genuine talent.
Nope. We want Lemons idiots to be able to jump in and make fools of themselves as quickly as they can. And we know that’s quick.
