Here's are all the details of our upcoming Fall Drive and Pefect Power Tech Session:
When: October 25th at 8:00 am.
Meeting Point: Plaza de Lago in Wilmette just off of Sheridan Rd. You can see a map of the area here (the red star is our meeting point)
The Plan: We'll be taking Sheridan Rd. all the way up past Lake Bluff (with some small interesting detours) and then over to Pefect Power – local shop that specializes in performance modifications to the new MINI. Once at Perfect Power we will have a MINI tech session where we will spend two hours going over everything about the MINI from regular maintenance to professional modifications. We do ask that everyone bring their own chair for the session. This will be important because if you don't have a chair with you – you'll have to stand 🙂
It's also worth nothing that while this drive is for members only but we're happy to have guests along who are interested in joining the Chicago MINI Motoring Club.
Here's a map of our route up Sheridan and then one of our trip over to Perfect Power.
After our tech session those with time are welcome to head over to the Cubby Bear North (on Milwaukee Ave. in Lincolnshire for lunch.
The crowd was giddy, the theatre was vintage, and the film was as good as everyone remembered (for those that had seen it of course). You can't find a better way to celebrate the re-release of the original Italian Job than seeing it on the big screen! Thanks for coming out!
Congrats Matt on wining the Italian Job Collection DVDs!
Hope to see everyone there tonight!
For more information and printable directions either see the theatre's website or download the CMMC screening PDF.
Just wanted to remind everyone that the Tire Rack event that was originally scheduled for 10/4 has been pushed back to 10/19. Again this isn't a CMMC event and unfortunately we didn't have any control over it being pushed back.
You can find more info here.
If anyone out there is itching to get out on the track, there is an event at GingerMan Raceway in South Haven, Michigan being put on by the Honda S2000 Club that is welcoming any MINIs who are interested. They have generously offered to let us in for the S2KC rate of $135!

Block off your calendar now. We will be having a drive on October 25th in the Northern Suburbs.
The details are still being worked out, but the drive will culminate at Perfect Power where we'll discuss general car maintenance, aftermarket mods, racing, and have a Q&A session.
Stay tuned for more information.
