Indoor Go Karting – January 16th

Once again we will be returning to the Chicago Indoor Racing
Facility in Buffalo Grove on Sunday Jaunary 16th for a MINI Club Go Karting event. We will have a drivers meeting at 11:00am, and racing from Noon until 1pm.

We have spots for the first 30 people (members plus 1 guest). Price will again be $40. To reserve a spot download this form, enclose a check and send it in to the club P.O. Box (listed on the form).

For those that haven?t raced yet at the track it?s an absolute blast. It?s a very professional facility and only those over 18 can race with a
valid drivers license. Further, you?re required to wear a full drivers
suit and helmet (all provided as part of the price). It?s so real and so fun you?ll even be a little sore afterwards! All in all it?s a great
experience that is truly addicting.

The Dragon – May 5-9 2005

The 3rd annual MINIs on the Dragon run will take place May 5-9, 2005 at Deals Gap, North Carolina.

Its a 318 turns in 11 miles incredible 2nd gear roller coaster ride, continiously changing from idle to redline through major elevation changes with hardly a straightaway in sight.

There are a couple of Chicago area people attending the event this year, so feel free to post here or in the Club forum for plans to meet up and caravan down together.
