Car #34 - The Eh Team - Lucky Dog Racing Canada

As a hobby, a group of us decided to enter the "crap can" world of budget Endurance Racing through 24 Hours of LeMons. The basic premise is that you purchase a vehicle for $500 and then outfit it for 8 hour multi-vehicle races, on various courses, throughout the United States. 

Our 2006 3.5l Chevy Impala was easily acquired for $500 back in 2018 but getting it "race ready" was a much more complex task. Not only did everything have to be stripped out of the car but a full roll cage and race seat was fabricated and installed, tires, rims and springs changed out, a fire suppression system purchased and then personal race gear for each driver sourced and purchased.

   

After completing our first 24 Hrs of Lemons race at Gingerman Raceway in October of 2018, we quickly realized that racing in Canada would be a whole lot cheaper. In Ontario, Lucky Dog Racing Canadawww.racelucky.ca ) hosts similar weekend races at Calabogie Motorsports Park, Shannonville and Canadian Tire Motorsports Park. 

"Cheaper" is a relative term because when you include race fees, fuel, food, it quickly adds up. We were able to run two LDRC races in 2019 but with the COVID pandemic, we were not able to resume racing until the fall of 2021. The 2022 LDRC season included major changes to the Impala and the team. By the spring of 2023, we had worked hard to create a reliable, run with the back of the pack car and had secured Farm Business Consultants (www.FBC.ca) as our main sponsor. We successfully competed in the May Canadian Tire Motorsports Park race - finishing Sunday 6th of 11 GT3 teams, at the June Calabogie Motorsports Park race - finishing Sunday again 6th of 14 GT3 teams and then at the last race of the season back at Calabogie - finishing 4th of 9 GT3 teams.

For the 2024 Season we will be competing again in the GT3 class at 3 races in April, June & July at Canadian Tire Motor Sports Park and at Calabogie Motorsports Park. Sponsors are always welcome! Please see our Instagram account for in season updates and race results.
