    Track Days in the Chicago Area

    Anyone interested in participating in a track day in the Chicago area can check out www.privatetracktime.com. Leon does a good job organizing these events. Several of us "BMW Types" did this last season. The sessions were professionally run and reasonably priced. Blackhawk Farms is north of Rockford, IL and Autobahn is a new facility near the NASCAR track in Joliet. The schedule:
    May 25 Blackhawk
    June 23 Autobahn
    July 2-3 Weekend at Blackhawk
    July 27 Blackhawk
    September 8th Autobahn

    June 8 True Novice track day Blackhawk (Tentative)
    August 31 True Novice track day Blackhawk

    Also, Keith Code has a session scheduled at Autobahn around the first of August.

    A bunch of us Midwesterners did a track day at Gingerman and it was a blast.

    It isn't what you ride, it is if you ride

    Hey Rich,

    Thanks. I'm not a member of Chicago Region. I'm a "Displaced Dink"... just an old founding member of the Dinky Dozen from Bloomington, IL. I'm still active with them (Director, Newsletter Editor) even thought I live up in this area. I've gotten to know some of your club members over the years, though. I may pop in for a meeting sometime. Are Joe and Alice still doing "First Fridays?"

    Nice job converting your PD.

    Sorry to get back so late....

    Yes sir!!! I believe they just celebrated 30 years this past summer.

    I'm about 20 minutes from their house.
