Kart Racing January 29th


January is Kart Racing season for the Chicago MINI Motoring Club.  To satisfy our winter time need for speed,  we will again be racing at K1 Speed in Buffalo Grove with their electric karts in a 3 race Grand Prix series.

WRAPUP:  Thrills, chills, and spills..  We had about 25 people participating in some mid-winter karting action.  A warmup race, a qualifying race, and then a final event.  A couple of the finals had a bit of “rubbing”, but a fun time was had by all.  Congrats to the 3 final race winners..  Matt K. , and Jim M. and a big thanks to Kathy and Scott S. for donating tickets to Zanies Comedy Club as an extra prize for the leaders!
