Auto Show Feb 16th


WRAPUP: A chilly morning greeted 15 MINIs for a drive down to the show.. We met up with others who drove on their own, and were granted VIP early access to the show for almost 50 of us.   We were able to get up close and personal with the new JCW GP and Paceman and check out all the goodies at the MINI exhibit.. Then we were off to check out the rest of the cars at the Auto Show.  Huge thanks again to MINIUSA and to Knauz MINI for helping with the arrangements for our club and for the event tickets!!

Indoor Kart Racing 1/27

WRAPUP: We had 21 racers attemding this year, down a few due to weather… Several new faces, and many regulars.   Lots of close racing action on the challenging new track layout.  I’m sure everyone was good and tired after 4 heats of racing.  Afterwards we hung out and enjoyed a giant pizza + drinks..  Thanks to our friends at Melrose Park Indoor Grand Prix for taking good care of our club!

Fast lady of the day went to Anne C. at 34.252

Fast guy was Martin M. at 32.134, winner of the Speed Racer helmet
