Autobahn Car Show 5/15

The Windy City BMW club has invited the Chicago MINI Motoring Club to share in their Car Show held at Autobahn race track.

This is in conjunction with their Performance Driving Event held on the same day.

Come on out and show off your MINI!!

WRAPUP: It was a cold wet day, so there were only a handful of MINIs that braved the weather. Still a fun morning hanging out with MINI friends, watching the on-track action and we were even allowed a few lunchtime touring laps of the wet/slippery track.

We are having a car show – not a white glove concourse –just come show off your pride & joy.  It will be between 10 AM and 2 PM on Saturday the 15th of May at the Autobahn Country Club in Joliet, IL.  The show is in conjunction with our High Performance Driving Experience.  Register to show your car at .  Tell us the Make, Model, Year & Color so we can organize the display field.

Show off your car plus take the opportunity to watch guys and gals driving their daily driver (mostly) or their dedicated track car around the South Circuit.  Instructors instructing; drivers driving; show-ers showing; everyone having fun.  On track you’ll see many BMWs, but also Detroit iron, Jaguar, Porsche, VW, Lotus, Alfa, Aston Martin, Miata, Audi, MINI, Nissan, and Hyundai will be represented with build dates from 1973 through 2021.  Whew!  Chat with the participants – masks & distancing – and learn about their cars and what their inspiration was to have so much fun on track.  You can see much of the track action from the covered porch atop the south timing building.  Bring your camera.  BTW, the Autobahn Café has really good sandwiches, wraps, sides and soft drinks for sale, so have lunch while you explore our event.  No charge to enter but you’ll need to sign waivers at the venue entrance.  Kids are welcome accompanied by parents or legal guardians (to sign their waiver) but just keep them close.  Sample copies of the Waivers which you can read ahead of time are at:
