January is Kart racing time for the Chicago MINI Motoring Club.
Kick the winter blahs by driving a vehicle that has even more go-kart like handling than your MINI!!
MINI Mania is offering Chicago MINI Motoring Club members a special after holiday discount!!
This is the perfect time to pick up a few extras that Santa may have forgotten.
Good now until Friday January 6th.
MINI of Chicago is asking and we’re putting it out here.
Who would be interested in doing a track day at Gingerman Raceway in 2012??No idea about prices, dates, required equipment, etc.?I believe they are looking to see if there is a large enough group of people to make it?possible..
Add a comment below.
Club members Tracy and Jim recently took a MINI two week vacation down to Key West Florida to visit the southern-most point in the continental United States..
Where are you planning on going in your MINI this coming year?
