Kart Racing – January 25th

January is Kart Racing season for the Chicago MINI Motoring Club, and we have a new venue and racing format this year!  We will be racing at K1 Speed in Buffalo Grove with their electric karts in a 3 race Grand Prix series


WRAPUP: A dozen people braved the snowy weather and  participated in this year’s event.  Lots of close racing and fun action.  Jim M. took fast guy of the day honors.

Starved Rock 11/02


WRAPUP: It was a beautiful but chilly day.  Over 50 MINIs attended our last driving event of the season.   Bill Jacobs MINI graciously opened up on a Sunday and even brought us a tasty breakfast and some nice give-aways.  After a fun drive thru some nice twisty roads we ended the day at MJ’s Pub & Grill.. some people went on to visit Starved Rock state park. Thanks again to the staff at Bill Jacobs, and MJ’s Pub, plus Chris B. for helping with arrangements and morning check-in, and Lee E. with route planning assistance!!
