Charity – 24 Hours of LeMons
April 18, 2017 Brighton Office News
Putting pedal to the metal isn’t a problem for the sales team at Hodges Brighton, even if it means swapping the Land Rover for a 1998 Hyundai Excel.
The Hodges team will head to Winton Motor Raceway on the 21st – 23rd April 2017 to give the other entrants a run for their money in the endurance race, 24 Hours of LeMons. Drivers compete in cars that are worth no more than $1000 to raise money for prostate cancer research. The ‘’Hodges Brighton’’ team will hit the circuit in a banged-up late ‘90s Hyundai Excel. “The great thing about LeMons is you don’t have to be a fast driver to have a great time, or achieve a good result,” race co-ordinator Sarah Ackerly said. “I’ve worked at Winton for a few years now and I’ve organised a lot of meetings, but I’ve never had the chance to drive competitively.’’ The 24 Hours of LeMons events started a decade ago in the US and have since grown to attract huge fields with an emphasis on enjoyment and teamwork. Teams are encouraged to dress up and paint their cars.
