The Chicago Alfa Romeo Owners Group has invited the Chicago MINI Motoring Club and the Milwaukee MINIs to come on out to their Blackhawk Farms Raceway Drivers School & Lapping Day on June 9th to hang out and take some Lunchtime touring laps.
WRAPUP: A wet morning quickly cleared up and turned into a beautiful day.. Plenty of interesting and exotic automobiles to look at, both new and old. We had 5 MINIs at the event, and got a chance to do close to an hour of touring laps, with top speeds limited to about 70mph.. Fun times were had by all.

WRAPUP: it was an overcast but nice day for a car show.. We had a half dozen MINIs among the BMW’s, but we drew a pretty good crowd. We had a chance to watch the BMW driving school, plus a drifting contest on the Autobahn grounds, and a few people took to the go-karts. There was a raffle and a few Chicago Club members got some cool cleaning supplies. We were also able to do some lunchtime touring laps on the track. Huge thanks to the Windy City BMW club for inviting our club to attend this event!!
