Lemons car still on first motor after 345,000 kilometres

DRESSING in pink and driving a pink Nissan Pulsar was all for a fun 24 Hours of Lemons race in Warwick at the weekend.

The race finished at 3pm Saturday and the team in pink have vowed to be back next year.

"We bought the car from a young lady in northern New South Wales for $800 and have won best dressed awards,” team member Kris Martin said.

"We dressed in gold the first two years, then in green last year and now in pink.”

The team only competes in Queensland events.

After three at Queensland Raceway, they have finished their first 24 hour race at Morgan Park Raceway.

They estimate they reached speeds of 160km/h in a vehicle with 345,000km on the clock and still on its original motor and gearbox.
