WRAPUP: Fun season ending drive!! Super cold weather held a few people back, but we had 25 MINIs cruising the back roads to Starved Rock State park, only held up by a couple of BMWs thru the twistiest bits.
Huge thanks to Hanna and Bill Jacobs MINI for hosting the starting location and providing some goodie bags and treats, to Mark H. for setting up the Rallista phone app route, and to Anthony N. for pre-driving the route!!
