Topic: Greetings All, first post
My name is Brent (I'm 60) and have been into cars even before I hit the age of 10, I found out about the 24 hr Lemons race while watching RoadKill on you tube. I was fascinated by the concept and the I found out this race comes to Hew Hampshire race way (~ 30 miles north of me).
I contacted a friend (~ 10 miles away) to see if he would be willing to do a "Last Hora" with me (we've done a few frame up restorations on British Sport cars) and he was excited about it (along with 2 of his neighbors) .
The race is in October 19 in Nh so we have a bit of time to iron things out but I wanted to start by asking a few questions for those who do this.
I have a Gery market (06) Smart car, it has no remaining value (tough to get parts for and MB won't support the gray market crowd, why there is no value left). I was going to donate it to the salvation army but the I thought "How cool would it be to do a 24 hour race with a 600cc turbo charged 6 speed 2 seater" got me thinking.
My questions are the following, 1: it is a grey market car, upgraded to US standards and has a US DOT sticker, would they accept this?
It has a wheel base of 71.3 inches (they said the will make exceptions in the rules section) do they allow Smart cars?
Or would we be better off starting with a junk 80s car?
