Team runs two cars in Lemons

MOTORSPORT: The SS Signs team was in Warwick for 24 Hours of Lemons with two cars at the weekend, The Donald and Little Rocket Man.

Little Rocket Man didn't make the weekend but The Donald was going strong late on Sunday afternoon.

The SS Signs team was in Warwick with two 1992 Toyota Corolla and the drivers were doing shifts between one and a half hours and two hours.

"Two hours is enough,” team manager Rob Sharp said.

For the past three years, the team has just concentrated on the two 24 Hours of Lemons meetings in Queensland, this year at Morgan Park Raceway.

"It is unreal in Warwick, far better than (past venue) Queensland Raceway,” he said.

"We had 10 drivers in Warwick at the weekend for two cars.”

The only way they will compete interstate is if 24 Hours of Lemons gets approval to race at Bathurst.

"We would go to Bathurst due to its reputation,” Sharp said.

Sharp had an early drive on Sunday morning and it was team owner Steve Lambourne who was in the car late in the day as they aimed to finish - the ambition of every team in Lemons racing.

The SS Signs team broke all the bolts off the flywheel of one car at the weekend and after four and a half hours were going again after getting bolts from Morgan Park Performance.

There might be a few variables in motorsport but one thing is sure, the SS Signs team will be back in Warwick on September 20 for the 3pm start of 24 Hours of Lemons at Morgan Park Raceway.
