Touring Laps at Blackhawk Farms 6/9

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.
