Meeting Place: Patrick MINI
Meeting Time: August 13th 6:00pm


I'm pleased to announce another upcoming Chicago MINI Motoring Club event. We will meet at Patrick MINI on the 13th of August at 6:00pm where legendary MINI racing veteran Phil Wicks will discuss his Midwest Driver Track Days at Gateway International Raceway. Phil will walk through all the details of the Track Days event plus (if we’re lucky) talk about his long racing career and what it was like to drive in the original Italian Job as a stunt man. The Track Days event will take place on August 30th at Gateway International Raceway just northeast of St. Louis. Chicago MINI Club Members will be offered a discount of 20%. So the Novice Class – usually $275 – is $220 and the Intermediate and Expert classes – usually $175 – is $140. Again this discount is only available to full members of the club.

This meeting will also be a great way to come out and see some of us for the first time if you couldn’t make it to the July Rally earlier this month. All are welcome to attend and we will be accepting membership applications at the meeting. Please email me at if you plan on attending this event.

Also a big thanks go out to Patrick MINI for letting us use their facilities for this meeting – thanks Kevin! Of course this would be a great time to take advantage of our club discount at Patrick and pick up some of that fantastic MINI.
