Fall Tour/Perfect Power Rally

Thanks everyone for coming out and to Sol at Perfect Power! The drive was great despite the guy in the 911 who swapped ends :) Seriously though it was a fun drive with some spectacular scenery and as many twists and turns as you'll find around Chicago.

Perfect Power portion of the day exceeded all expectations. Sol made us feel quite at home and is provided some fascinating insight into the MINI.

I'll be posting a couple photos probably tomorrow. If anyone has photos they'd like to share please email them to me at

Announcing the Fall Drive/Perfect Power Tech Session

Here's are all the details of our upcoming Fall Drive and Pefect Power Tech Session:

When: October 25th at 8:00 am.

Meeting Point: Plaza de Lago in Wilmette just off of Sheridan Rd. You can see a map of the area here (the red star is our meeting point)

The Plan: We'll be taking Sheridan Rd. all the way up past Lake Bluff (with some small interesting detours) and then over to Pefect Power – local shop that specializes in performance modifications to the new MINI. Once at Perfect Power we will have a MINI tech session where we will spend two hours going over everything about the MINI from regular maintenance to professional modifications. We do ask that everyone bring their own chair for the session. This will be important because if you don't have a chair with you – you'll have to stand :)

It's also worth nothing that while this drive is for members only but we're happy to have guests along who are interested in joining the Chicago MINI Motoring Club.

Here's a map of our route up Sheridan and then one of our trip over to Perfect Power.

After our tech session those with time are welcome to head over to the Cubby Bear North (on Milwaukee Ave. in Lincolnshire for lunch.
