UPDATE: 07/19/2005 We are leaving a bit earlier than previously planned. If you would like to meet up outside my place in Skokie at 6:00am, or meet us along the way down, send me an e-mail and let me know. (If you have already contacted me I will get info out to you soon).
Sugestions to bring for spectating: FRS radio tuned to channel 1 subchannel 1 for the drive down, drinks, healthy snacks to stay hydrated and alert, sunscreen, bugspray, hat, foldup chair, Chicago MINI Motoring Clothes and a smile!!
UPDATE: 07/13/2005 We only have a few people who are heading out to watch, so we will be heading out early to get to Autobahn at the same time as the drivers. We will most likely be leaving the north suburbs at around 6:30-ish.
Please post here, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in joining us!!
There will be a $10 gate fee for spectators, and Phill has extended an invitation to MINI Club members to take a few touring laps of the South Track at controlled speeds (in a lead/follow situation) during the class lunch break.
Details are still in the works, but we are planning a small group drive down to Joliet. Post here if you are interested in hanging out at a cool new track and cheering on our fellow MINI (and other brand) drivers!!
