CMMC & MINI USA Chicago Auto Show Event

Auto Show
Wrapup:

About 20 MINIs braved the cold cold Saturday weather for the drive down to the Auto Show. After fueling up on Donuts and Cupcakes we headed down a salty Sheridan road and Lakeshore drive and eventually made it to McCormick Place.

First stop was the MINI exhibit where we had our first chance to be up close and personel with the new 2007 MINI’s. MINIUSA provided a special VIP area on the 2nd floor of the exhibit where we had a chance to have a continental breakfast and drinks.

After that, people split up and went to check out lots of cars.

CMMC Indoor Karting event Jan 28

 

Wrapup:

Thrills, chills, spills, spectacular carshes, red flag pitting drama, and incredible racing!!

We had it all. The long course was tricky but lots of fun, there was plenty of racing action, and a little bit of “rubbing” going on.

Thanks to all who attended including a number of members of the Milwaukee MINIs club, and the Chicagoland MG club. Looking forward to doing this again soon.

Several people were taking pictures and video.. Please e-mail me the location of anything that you put out to the web, and I will link them in here.
