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!!

If the weather is agreeable cars will be parked on the lawn right inside the front entrance to the facility. The show is open to any car, but the focus will be on BMW’s, Mini’s and track or racecars.
