24 Hours of LeMons @ Collie Motorplex
Aug 18 @ 9:30 am – Aug 20 @ 4:00 pm

24 Hours of LeMons presents Australian endurance racing for $999 cars. Cars are to be bought and made ‘race-worthy’ for no more than the $999.

It’s where Mercedes and Mazda, Toyota and Hyundai do battle for the glory of gloating rights of LeMons!

These races set themselves apart from the typical road race by the unusual penalties and punishments meted out by judges, as well as a blatant disregard for traditional Motorsport politicking.

All are winners if they make it to the end! The very point of the LeMons! FINISH!!

On a more serious note, the 24hrs of LeMons is to raise funds for the Prostate Cancer Foundation.
