Our good friends at MINIMania have offered members of the Chicago MINI Motoring Club a great discount..
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

WRAPUP: We saw a full-house at the Launching pad.? MINIs and Austin-Healeys hanging out together.? When we finally got started, we had 27 MINIs.? Including 1 Classic and a couple of friends from the STL MINIs.? With stops in Gardner for the 2-celled jail and restored diner car, then in Dwight for lunch and a group photo at the restored gas station, the trip started off with a bang.? In Dwight, we’re joined by 3 Pontiac-area MINIs.? We roll into Odell for another photo op at another gas station, then finally into Pontiac.? When we turn the corner, we’re personally greeted by the Mayor of Pontiac!? The weather was great and we were well received by everyone along the Red Carpet Corridor of Route 66.? Great seeing old friends and making several new ones. Special thanks to Dan and Francis for putting the drive together.?
Take a MINI?day trip down part of Route 66.? We are planning a drive to visit a number of small towns with a final destination of Pontiac.?
