When life gives us Lemons (or COVID RED-light restrictions) we make LEMON-SQUEEZE. Our main focus is to get YOU back onto the Racetrack and cutting some laps! Well here's your chance...

About this race event

Instead of cancelling the February 2022 Continuous 24 hour NaZCAR Lemons endurance event, we've come up with a NEW format to allow all teams to come and play, even under Covid RED conditions!

Since we're limited to 100 people per zone, we'll split the field over 2 days, into 2 zones per day. We currently have 100 teams registered, so here's how it works:
* 50 teams per day (split into 2 zones of 25 teams)
* Minimum 3 DRIVERS per team (maximum 4 team members)
* Every team gets an in-house garage
* Every team gets ONE full day of racing

Event Schedule

This is a ONE DAY format of endurance motorsport for all "Lemons and Limes".
