What is Lemons?

Welcome to "NaZCAR Lemons" - NOW 100% KIWI OWNED + OPERATED!

It's a breeding ground for inflated egos and God-like statuses. It's where any contraption, from Honda to Hyundai, from BMW to Bucket of Bolts, can do battle for the glory of gloating rights of Lemons, all are winners if they make it to the end!

NaZCAR Lemons started life as the endurance series called "24 Hours of Lemons" in 2016 and has become NZ's most beloved and successful endurance motorsport series. Lemons is low-budget motorsport at its best - allowing easy, fun and CHEAP entry into the world of motorsport - perfect for beginners, wannabees, corporate teams, semi + professional race car drivers - even ex-racers who thought motorsport had lost it’s a’peel - sense of humour ESSENTIAL... "How do I get involved" I hear you ask?

Lemons is the cheapest Motorsport on the planet! Buy a clunker, bung some safety gear into it, then hurl it (or nurse it) around a professional racetrack for up to 24 hours.

More seat time than a dunny after an unholy Tandoori... Cars and teams avoid crazy penalties by dressing up in 'themes' - the whackier, the better! Prizes for teams that last the distance - penalties for those with 'misplaced talent' - fun for everyone! For those spending a bit more, we now have 2 'classes' - so you can get a bit more serious without upsetting the cool kids...

Cage, seat, harness, HANS, kill-switch and fire extinguisher are mandatory. Safety first, kids... Fix your crapper and keep going! Teams of drivers + crew try making it last the distance... Good luck with that!

Our motto? Race, Reck, Repair, Repeat! The very point of LEMONS... to FINISH!
