Gingerman Raceway Open test and tune – July 7th

We have been invited to an Open test and tune night at Gingerman Raceway by the Michigan Mini Motoring Community (MMMC)

Here are the details:

Date: July 7th…Rain date: July 14th

Cost: $60

Time: 5:30-8:30 p.m.

Who: Anybody with $60, and a helmet (no open wheel cars, convertibles need a roll bar).

This is not an official CMMC event, but hopefully a handfull of people with the ability to take a Wednesday afternoon off will make the drive out there. I have heard that it is a beautiful track.

If you are interested, please post here, or on the Michigan Club forum or send an e-mail to Chad from the Michigan Club.

I would like to extend a big Thank you to the Michigan Mini Motoring Community for inviting our club!!

US Grand Prix Events

For those MINI owners attending the US Grand Prix in Indianapolis on June 20th there are several events brought to you by the MINI Car Club of Indiana you won't want to miss. Personally I'll be heading down with a friend sometime around 9:00 am Saturday morning from Chicago. If anyone else is interested in joining us for the trip let me know!

Here is some detailed information on the happenings:

The Car Corral
The car corral will be located on the backstretch of the oval again this year. You must have a grandstand ticket (cheapest is 75.00) or you can get a 3 day general admission pass for 60.00 (single race day GA tickets are not avail). You must also have a parking pass for the corral. To obtain the parking pass you need to call the IMS ticket office and identify yourself as a MINI car club member and tell them you would like to participate in the car corral. You will need your IMS ticket account number when you call. The ticket office number is 800-822-4639.
