LeMons-Cessna-310

Jeff Bloch, cop and racecar driver, knows a thing or two about unique racing vehicles. A few years ago, Bloch, also known as Speedycop, won the 24 hour LeMons race for driving the race’s most unique vehicle. The LeMons (not the more famous Le Mans) gives the top prize to the coolest vehicle on the track and its second place to car that travels the furthest distance.

Bloch says he is ready to drive to victory again at the event that will take place at the Carolina Motorsports Park in Kershaw, South Carolina, in March with the racecar, dubbed the  Spirit of LeMons, he is building out of the carcass of a Cessna 310 that he had found abandoned at Hyde Field outside Washington D.C. To make the vehicle not only unique but safe as well, the racecar is being equipped with a roll cage and rear-facing cameras instead of rearview and side-view mirrors.

Here are videos of the build:

  1. Hi Andrew,

    These are fun races to participate in or just to watch.

    Are you going to cover the race?
