Autobahn Car Show 5/21

WRAPUP:  A beautiful Saturday brought out 8 MINIs to Autobahn Country Club to display their car and hang out for the afternoon.  We were able to watch the Windy City BMW club driving event,  take a handful of touring laps around the racetrack, test drive a few BMW electric hybrid cars including the i8 and i3, and do a bit of kart racing..  Terry and Nancy tie for best car in show, and there were some fabulous raffle prizes!!   Huge thank you to Trent from the Windy City BMW club for including us in their event!
