What did the 24 Hours of Lemons (Thunderhill) and the “C Sports Racer” class of the SCCA 2008 Runoffs have in common? They were both won by motorcycle-engined lightweight specials that didn’t quite belong…

This is an outrageously long podcast — nearly 18 minutes — and it covers two primary topics. The first topic is the “spirit of Lemons” and what happens when it takes a bike-engined special to win a “budget” race. The second is a rambling diatribe on the notion of “driving at the limit” complete with some racetrack times from a recent press event.

This is, with any luck, the last podcast we’ll do with this lousy microphone — so if you can live with one more episode full of “pops”, things should be better next time.
