Follow longtime BMW CCA member Terry Sayther’s report through the weekend in his $500 racecar, preparing for the 24 Hours of LeMons. Yes, LeMons, not LeMans. Check back for more from the Chihuahua Express, a three-day open road race in western Mexico, the weekend of April 21.

April 20, 2007</p> FRIDAY, 4/20/07 – We have arrived in Chihuahua City, Chihuahua, Old Mexico via Big Bend National Park and overnight in Terlingua, Texas. Our route crossed paths with roadrunners, coyotes, desert jackrabbits, and a herd of big horned sheep. The always traumatic border crossing made easy by thorough preparation and all proper paperwork, was fortunately made through Presidio, Texas/Ojinaga, Chih. in obscure west Texas. We have heard that not all were so lucky: the racers who crossed in El Paso/Juarez were delayed for many hours for reasons unknown.
Racecars have been trickling into the parking lot here at the five star Westin Hotel, where they undergo a cursory safety inspection before getting their official stickers and numbers. Nothing would do for our Project Lemon Bimmer but that we get lucky number 13, of course.
