I just recieved an email from Phil announcing his next Trackday event:
The next track day has been announced and will be held on Saturday, November 15, at Gateway International Raceway.? The rate listed on the web is $175 if booked before November 1.? The discount rate of $140 is good for MINI club members only.
What a deal! This will be a great opportunity for those of us who couldn't make the first event as well as those who can't wait to go again. Here's Phil's contact info if you're interested in going:
Phil Wicks/Midwest Driver:
The Windy City BMW has asked me to pass along some information to all the MINI owners in the Chicago area that there will be a general meeting next Wednesday for all current Windy City club members and non members who own MINIs and might be interested in the club. I thought that there may be some interest among some of you who are looking for more track time etc. Here's the info:
Bill Jacobs BMW/MINI
1564 W. Ogden Ave.
Naperville, IL 60540
Wednesday, September 24, 2003
Light Refreshments Provided
Join us for a big meeting about the MINI! Windy City member (and BMW owner) Gabe Bridger of the newly formed Chicago MINI Motoring Club (www.chicagominiclub.com) will give us the lowdown on the state of the MINI world and tell us about the MINI community that's cropping up all over the US. Of course this also includes Windy City events! We're also hoping to have information about upgrades and aftermarket mods you can do to your MINI. This is shaping up to be a great meeting for anyone who owns a MINI, rides in a MINI, or just daydreams of a MINI!
Bill Jacobs BMW/MINI is located at the intersection of Ogden Avenue and Jefferson Street in Naperville. The easiest way to get there is to take I-88 west to Rt. 59, go south on Rt. 59 and make a left at the light on Jefferson Street (Portillo's on corner), and go straight a couple of miles to Ogden.
PARKING WILL BE IN THE LOT ACROSS FROM BILL JACOBS, BEHIND THE GEMATO'S GRILL RESTAURANT.
Motor on over!
For those of you in the Chicago MINI Motoring Club and might be interested in more track time and further benefits (the monthly magazine the Roundel for one) I recommend also checking out the BMWCCA. They're happy to welcome MINIs into the club and we at the CMMC are looking forward to working with them on the future on joint events.
The club is hoping to have a small event showing the original Italian Job at a local dealer sometime in October. The only issue is we'd be very limited in terms of space due to dealer seating. That is unless someone else has a better idea for a location.
As reported on Roadfly the Times Cinema in Milwaukee is showing the original Italian Job tonight the 19th at 7:00 and 9:00 pm. If you're in the area and are looking for a fun Friday night this may be the ticket. Here's the info:
