The Chicagoland Austin Healey and MG clubs are having a little Gymkhana/Autocross event this Sunday Jun 12th in Warrenville, and have extended and invitation for Chicago MINI Motoring Club members to attend. This will likely be a very tight and twisty course that will be challenging for our “large” MINIs to run, but it should be a bunch of fun.
WRAPUP: Perfect weather, and a fun crowd of really cool cars. Jim M. was fast car of the day in his M Coupe, and Steve was first place (and only) MINI 😉

WRAPUP: A little rain, a little sun, a little warm, a little cold, we had it all. About 25 MINIs from several area clubs participated in some really fun driving, a bit of Wisconsin culture, and some visiting time with MINI friends. Huge thanks to Paul and Barbara for the tremendous amount of work requires to plan, organize, lead and put this event together. Thanks also to members of M.I.N.I, Mad City MINIs, and the Milwaukee MINIs for joining with us to make such a fun event!!
Please send links of pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will add them here..

CMMC club member Cliff has been working with several area MINI and BMW clubs to get a special car corral parking area for the Grand Am race at Road America on June 23rd-25th.
The parking area will be near turn 14, and there will even be grills available if you were interested in cooking your own food.
They are also working on a 20% off group ticket buy if there is enough interest.
It is important to get a head count of people planning on attending. Please add a comment to this post, and we’ll hook you up with Cliff.
