Tire Rack Auto-X October 4th – Save the Date!

Plans are still in the works, but it is looking like we will be heading over to the Tire Rack in South Bend, Indiana for a MINI meet and some casual autocross fun.

CooperBeagle on MCO has posted this info (Motocross should read Autocross): “UPDATE!!! Have been working with Alex on some logistics for equipment, etc., and we will better having our Mini Meet and MotoCross on OCTOBER 4. We will have use of the track at The Tire Rack set up with cones for a challenging run. No racing experience expected, and your Mini will be safe on this course. We will have professional starting/timing lights so you are gonna know just how fast you really are. This will be a fun event! You'll tour (parts) of The Tire Rack and meet Alex. We will have food, T-shirts and did I mention fun? There is likely to be a registration fee to cover costs such as insurance and the T-shirts, more details on registration to come. WHO'S IN?”

The Chicago MINI Motoring Club Website Introduction

Greetings. You have found the Chicago MINI Club's official website. The site will feature information on upcoming events as well as photos of past events. For members of the club it will serve as a place to catch up on postings regarding weekly and at times daily information about the club and its activities. For non-members it's a good way to better understand what the club has to offer Chicago area MINI owners.

While the site will eventually feature it's own bulletin boards (powered by MCO) we're temporarily using the “Midwest” forum as found on MCO. This isn't an ideal solution but it will allow us to communicate through either the comment section on posts or through the board directly.

Also of note most of the Chicago specific information found on Bridger.us/MINI will be cross posted here. As always for non-Chicago specific news MINI news and information check out Bridger.us/MINI.

If you have comments or suggestions feel free to let us know in the comment section below or by emailing the club at info@chicagominiclub.com. If you have any ideas on club related posts don't hesitate to email one of our board members listed on the lower right side of the page.

Lets Make MINI Friends

The Chicago MINI Motoring Club has created a handout for members to download and pass on to other MINI owners that aren’t part of the club. It tells them about the club, our activities, and all that we do. It’s a great way to invite any local MINIs that we may see from time to time.

You can download the handout the PDF file here.
