Autobahn Car Show 5/20

WRAPUP: Fantastic weather brought out about a dozen MINIs to the Windy City BMW car show.. We outnumbered the BMW’s in the show this year.

We got a chance to hang around and visit, plus watch the BMW driving school happening at the same time. Additional bonus was a 1/2 hour of lunchtime lapping on the track at moderate speeds.

A fun time was had by all!

Thanks to Windy City BMW for sharing their event with us
