Midwest Track Enthusiast Thread - Dates - Events Planning
 
Hi All,

Trying to find more people to go to the track with next year! I try to do about 10 hpde events per year at various tracks around us (Road America, Grattan, Gingerman, Autobahn, Blackhawk Farms, Putnam Park) All are within about a 3 hour drive from Chicago.

Any other track rats local?

Here's a recent vid of me at Grattan a few weeks ago chasing down a camaro.

Sigh. Maybe in a few years when the price comes down a bit more people will start racing them.

I would be interested for next year/season.

Hey really cool. What kind of experience do you have? I can recommend a few clubs that do events around the midwest. Some are better for beginners than others. PM me if you'd like more info.

Where at in chicago are you? I'm in Jefferson park, a group of us meet usually every thursday out in the suburbs (lombard area) if you're interested in coming out some time.

I'll be doing MVP and NorthWoods Shelby Club events next year mainly at Road America and Blackhawk. Would love to try out Autobahn sometime.

Only done 1 track day in the R but I go to every event I can to bum rides off of some friends I have made. Couple of them are instructors with shelby club or the BMW club.

Usually brauerhaus on north Ave but we change it up from time to time. Search Deutschland Raketen on fb, we update the schedule there

For anyone who is interested in play time a little further East, I have created a public Google Calendar listing public HPDE, Autocross, and Drag Racing opportunities within ~3hr from Cleveland. Each event has a link in the description to the event host's website where you will be able to find information on registration, requirements, etc. I will be updating the calendar with more events as they are made available.

If anyone finds something not on the calendar that you think should be added, please feel free to PM me or send an email with a link to lakeerieautosports@gmail.com

Final note: I am not affiliated with any of these events and my endorsement of them only goes so far as to say they are a place to enjoy your vehicle without putting the general public at risk on public roads.

I'm in the Lakeview area. I have pretty much no track experience, but have always wanted to get my R out on the track!

I'd be down to see what your schedule is. Did Blackhawk 1x and Autobahn in Joliet 1x last season in Mk7 R.
