Huge thanks to everyone who has been passionate about MINIs and have supported our club over all these years!!

Checking if there is any interest for Chicago MINI Motoring Club members to join in on the night.

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

We had almost 30 MINs show up to Northshore Sportscars for an adventure drive.. we faced rain, snow flakes, sleet and eventually cool but sunny weather on the way to Gus’s drive in.. We explored a few twisty roads and the rollercoaster Alden road on the longer way up there.

Hue thanks to Michelle at Northshore Sportscars for hosting our starting location and to Mark H. for helping with the Rallista routing.
