These Are the Most Amazing Le Mans Race Cars of the Year

(One Is A Freaking Backhoe)

 

 

 

 

 

 

” The 2014 season of the 24 Hours of LeMons was the best one yet, with 20 races all over the country, the world-record largest endurance road race in history (the Guinness folks just declared it as the official record holder), floods, ice, pitch darkness, and—of course—the greatest crop of new-to-the-series race cars we could ever hope to see. 2013 had some great machinery, as did 2012 and 2011, but nothing like what we saw during the last 12 months. Here we go, the new cars (or cars modified so heavily that they might as well have been new) from the 2014 season!”

” You can’t go wrong with British sports cars in LeMonseverybody knows that—and so it was something of a mystery that we saw zero Jensen-Healeys during the first eight years of the series. You can get an ugly example for cheap and the “Torqueless Wonder” Lotus 907 engine seems well-suited for screaming around a road course, so we knew it was just a matter of time before some team took the plunge. That team was Bangers N Mash, which showed up to the Return of the LeMonites race at Miller Motorsports Park in Utah with this car.”
