Vintagefest 09/15

WRAPUP: A cold and rainy day brought a smaller than expected crowd.  There were only a few MINIs on display and a couple CMMC spectators, but a good assortment of BMWs braved the bad weather.  We got a cool tour of the ZF transmission facility, and CMMC members won some great raffle prizes..  Congrats to David L for winning the MINI division, and to Jim M for taking 2 BMW classes!

 

The Windy City BMW club has invited the Chicago MINI Motoring Club to attend and participate in their annual Vintagefest event.

Come check out cool BMWs and MINIs, both old and new.

    • Greg Pasquarelli

      Steve, what if I just want to show up just to hang out? Do I still need to register?

      • CMMC_Steve

        Yes.. on the online registration, there is a box to check if you are showing your car.. you can leave it unchecked as a spectator..

      • CMMC_Steve

        Hi Greg.. Double checked with the organizers and I can clarify.. Not required to register if you are coming by to watch, but encouraged.. If you are ordering food if is best to register.. It is cheaper by ordering early, and there will only be limited extra food on the day of the event (and more expensive).

        Looking forward to seeing you there!!

  • David Lewis

    I just registered also. I’ll be there!

  • Scott Dueball

    If I’m reading this correct, its free unless i want lunch or a shirt? Thats a sweet deal!!!

    • CMMC_Steve

      Yep.. and Lunch and shirt prices are also quite reasonable.
      Huge thanks to Windy City BMW for including us and the Rolls Royce club to this event.
      See you there!!
