Racing Lawnmowers Gets Your Speed Fix on the Cheap

Who says you need hundreds of thousands of dollars to get your racing fix on?

You may recall a piece we did of Honda's lawn mower that goes 0-60 mph in 4 seconds and tops out at 130mph. It certainly got put on our wishlist. You can imagine then how happy we were to discover a 12 hour endurance race in England featuring tuned lawn mowers. Crashes, engine blow outs, tire shredding, pit stops and drivers falling off their mowers from exhaustion make this worthy entertainment and we love how seriously the competitors take it. There's even a British Lawnmower Racing Association.

Even though this seems like a skit from Kimmel or Conan, it's not a bad way to get your racing fix on. Colin Furze, of Furze vs. Modfather and other crazy videos participated. Ironically not a single blade of grass was cut. Check out the night time leg of the race and all the craziness that entails.
