Reception will be in theMediaCenter(green building on the attached map)

Time: 5:00PM-7:00PM, immediately following the end of the track day. If you aren't participating at the track, please arrive at the track at4pmor so. This will ensure that you get in, in case Gateway closes the main gate.

This will be a dinner/reception for Midwest Mini club members. There will be several people from the KC club, theChicagoclub, and the Indy club at the track day. Come join us for a meet and greet casual dinner. It's a great opportunity to meet members of other clubs and talk Minis! Food and drinks will be provided.

Everyone is welcome to visit the track at any time during the day. You can check out some cool cars (including 15 Minis) and see what the driving academy is all about. The $5 entrance fee lets you in for the entire day.

One other interesting note; the last event of the track day is a 5-lap Mini demonstration session. This will happen between4-5pm. We should have around 15 Minis on the track at once!
