Indoor Kart Racing 1/26

January is indoor kart racing time at the Chicago MINI Motoring Club. Come on out for some high speed racing action on a fun track!!

WRAPUP: Cold weather kept a few people away, but the racing was hot!!  We had a dozen CMMC members and friends partake in our annual event, and the racing was very close.  “Fast Guy”  for the day was Martin by a very slim margin, and “Fast Gal” was Kate.   Special thanks to “Scoring Babe” Carrie, and best Birthday Wishes to Jim!!

DETAILS: This year we will do the same format as last year.. Four open races of about 8 minutes each. Bragging rights will be determined by fastest individual lap times, not by overall place.

WHO:  This event is open to Chicago MINI Motoring Club members, and friends of CMMC. You must be 18 or over and have a valid drivers license.

PRICING: This is a fantastic price for over 30 minutes of intense racing action.

$30 per person for current CMMC member and up to 1 guest.
$35 per person for Non-Members or additional CMMC guests.
Because we are starting later than we have in the past, we are not making official plans for food..  If enough people are interested we may do a casual get-together across the street at Bacci Pizza

Two ways to pay!

Pay with PayPal using our new Club Store! Or register by mail using this form and mailing it with payment to the P.O. box address listed.
