WRAPUP: A dozen MINIs came out for a short drive. We met up with a few more for some some Ice Cream treats. Thanks to Rus and Tawana for helping out with the route verification and to Cathy and Gary for leading the drive!!
Update: Mark your calendars! The date for this event will be June 2! Coding will be on a first come first served schedule starting at 10am. See you there!!
We’re thinking of hosting a coding day sometime in late May or early June. Similar to our garage day last year, this event will be about coding the MINI computer rather than making mechanical modifications.
Ram from Madison will be visiting us here in Chicago to facilitate this event.
WRAPUP: The weather was cold, but the roads were hot!! After a drizzly start, 50+ MINIs took off for some backroad adventure in the Kettle Moraine area. The sun came out and the roads cleared up for the second half of the drive as we sampled some of lower Wisconsin’s finest twisty roads. We had people attend from as far away as Madison amd Michigan. Lots of first-timers and a great mix of Milwaukee and Chicago club members. Huge thanks to Beth and Craig for planning this event!!
The Windy City BMW club has offered Chicago MINI Motoring Club members the chance to participate in their 18th annual Car Control Clinic on Saturday April 20th.
This is a fantastic opportunity to safely explore and understand the limits of your car and have a bunch of fun while doing it. A perfect class for a younger person or someone who has not yet had a chance to feel anti-lock brakes, practice skid control and correction and emergency lane change maneuvers.
The Windy City BMW club is waiving the BMWCCA membership restriction for CMMC club members. Cost is $60. Space is limited and fills up fast, so contact Randy at firstname.lastname@example.org to secure your spot. Add a comment here so we know you are attending!!
Bill Jacobs MINI has extended an exclusive invitation to the club for a breakfast preview of the new Paceman. And as a special treat afterwards we’ll have an opportunity to take our own MINIs out on their test track! So bring an appetite and your MINI for a morning of fun with Bill Jacobs MINI!
