Bruce McLaren Motorsport Park (Taupo) – 31st March – 2nd April 2017
|Most Laps (401) completed||Tight 5 – Not that anyone gives a flying fig!
Despite being penalised for “Animal Cruelty”, they kept at it and completed 401 laps (a new track record)!
|The People’s choice Award||Team Five-O – Friendly, great sportsmanship, embraced Lemons ethics and helped everyone enjoy the event…
Until they turned on their bloody in-car PA. Noisey buggers!
|Back from the Dead||Mad Macs – These guys shredded parts and were all but done.
Then they found (kindly donated by other teams) spare parts and got back in the race.
Then they broke down, then fixed their crap and came back AGAIN! Until finally they succumbed to a DNF!
|Best Themed Team||Animal Racing – amazing Muppet costumes with matching lycra, sequins and headgear – hard to forget!||#52|
|The Ugly Stick Award||Euro Bogans – The most beautiful team… On the inside!||#2|
|Most Consistent Team Award||Stick Men – Stayed out of trouble, kept away from the Penalty area and generally kept their noses clean.
Lemons perfection! And they dressed to impress…
|The Quiet Achievers Award||The Steelers – These guys also managed to stay clear of the Judges’ wrath most of the weekend.
Then quietly racked up lap after consistent lap.
All in a car that was largely untouched since the inaugural Hampton Downs race last September!
|The Battlers Award||Braking Bad – Spent most of the event in 3rd gear or in the pits! Battled through until Sunday…
Almost made it to the end!
|Best Fix Award||The Hairy Lemon – These guys spent pretty much all weekend making VERY sketchy fixes on the car.
Dodgy welded brakes, under-car cooling, lowered (hacked) suspension and a whole raft of mods too horrific to mention!
They even clipped the artificial grass for better aerodynamics!
|Most Shocking Performance Award||White Trash – These guys were amazing – fast and reliable car, perfect hair, good attitudes.
They actually clocked the fastest lap time of the event – HOWEVER it was set while overtaking a competitor car.
UNDER YELLOW!! Shocking…
|The Fresh Start Award||Team Bond – brand new team, rookie drivers, plagued by mechanical failures all weekend, smiles all ’round!
They’ll be back since they’ve caught the Lemons bug!
