Windy City Miata Club - Autocross
August 23, 2003 - Joliet Jr. College

Several of our MG clan took advantage of an invitation from the Windy City Maita Club to autocross at Joliet Junior College on the 23rd. The lot there is a little larger than what we’ve been using in Warrenville, so there was enough leg room to get the cars wound up a little more, but still in 2nd gear. Barney Gaylord managed to crack two more steel wheels on his MGA (total 8 by now) and had to quit after the morning runs. But he was back by the end of the day, having taken a trailer load of wheels and tires to a shop for tire shuffling, and returned with the same skinny street tires mounted on his gold aluminum racing wheels. The competition was over by then, but his car was well prepared for the Warrenville autocross the next day.

Evening into night found most of us picnicking and watching the Joliet Jackhammers baseball team playing the St Paul MN team. Thanks much and compliments of the WCMC and their sponsor Mazda of America for the tickets. We hope to be doing more autocross events with the WCMC next year, and for CMGC driving points as well.
