Where: Starting at Patrick MINI, 696 Golf Road in Shaumburg, ending in Starved Rock. This will be a most of the day event
The Plan:We will meet at about 8:30, and hit the road at about 9:00. From there we will head to Euroquipe in St. Charles. They are a shop that works on BMW’s, Porsche’s and MINI’s. They have invited our club to stop by, check out the shop and have a light snack on our way. We should arrive around 9:45, and probably hit the road again 10:30-ish. From there, we will head to Minooka (about an hour drive) where we will start a nice little route to Utica. We will probably find a place for lunch near Morris, and then head into Starved Rock State Park. No real plans after that.. Everyone is free to explore the area and hang out as long as they please.
What to bring: A full tank of gas, FRS Radio (if you have one), comfortable clothes for the day (perhaps sunscreen, bug spray, etc), and a smile!
UPDATE: There are only 3 spots left as of October 3rd! Reserve now if you are interested
There is more late breaking news from Euroquipe !!
They will be renting out Gingerman Raceway in South Haven Michigan for the day (8:00AM-5:30PM) on October 11th (Columbus Day). There are at least 10 openings
left at $150 per person. This includes: training a Continental breakfast & buffet lunch!
Is your MCS feeling a bit sluggish these days? Have you gotten over that initial thrill of power, and need a bit more when you mash your foot on the GO pedal?
Well, here is your chance.. Brad Schrock of Euroquipe in St. Charles is hosting a Pulley Party on October 23rd and October 30th. He will be installing Alta 15% Pulleys on those days for a special price of $375 (parts & labor). There will be room for about 8 cars per day.
As some of you may know we've been very late in getting our member packets out to new and renewing members. Don't worry! We will be mailing them out next week. The hold-up has been the window stickers which have been printed a total of three times and finally (just yesterday in fact) come out perfect. We didn't want to send out the packets without them so we decided to just wait a few weeks.
Here is some info forwarded from one of our Club members…
“Drive your pride and joy on a real racetrack, in a non-competitive situation, with procedures to help keep you separated from other drivers, and instructors to assist you in learning how to better explore the limits of your car. It is called a High performance Car Control Clinic, and will be held at Blackhawk Farms on Oct 6th. It will be sponsored by the Chicago and Milwaukee regions of the Sports Car Club of America.”
