There were so many Chicago MINI Motoring Club members attending and participating the British Car Show in Des Plaines on September 12th that I thought I’d add an area for people to share their photos of the event..
WRAPUP: Perfect weather for a perfect MINI event.. We had 10 MINIs meet up at Knauz MINI and caravan out to Milwaukee to join up with 25 or so additional cars, about 75 people total. Everyone drove into the park together, and settled in after some re-positioning from the friendly parking lot staff. We had some visting time and a fantastic catered meal for most of us, and a few packed their own for tailgating. We headed into the game, and the Cubs even won with a late in the game score of 1-0.
Huge thanks to Theresa and Wade for working on all the arrangements for such a wonderful day, Rivers Edge Catering for the great food, and to Knauz MINI for hosting the Chicago meetup location.

WRAPUP: We had about a dozen MINIs head out for a 20 mile scenic backroads drive, and arrived together at the Micro Car show. Several CMMC members were displaying their MINIs as well as other very cool cars. Almost 400 Micro and Mini cars of all shapes, sizes, and conditions were on display. One group travelled all the way from California along the old Route 66 drive. Volo museum also had a large number of much larger cars for sale inside, with price tags from the low thousands up to a Corvette valued at over $100,000. This was truly an amazing show and a bunch of amazing cars.
Huge thanks to Arnie and Lena for being amongst the small group of people that has spent the past 4 years organizing and planning to make this event as spectacular as it was!!
This is a fantastic opportunity to take your MINI out on a race track with an instructor in a safe and controled environment. Huge thanks to the Windy City BMW club for offering this event to our club at their discounted club rate!!!
