Chicagoland MG Club: Driveline July 2012
Upcoming Events
Road America Historic Races Camping Trip
July 13 15

The third weekend of July is always a thrill at Road America, the four-mile road course about a hundred miles north of Chicago, because the cars cover the span from the 50s to some that were raced in international competition only a few years ago.

Road America is located near Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin on Wisconsin Highway 67. It has hosted races since the 1950s and currently hosts races in the NASCAR Nationwide Series, American Le Mans (Road America 500), SCCA Speed World Challenge Series, Grand-Am, ASRA, and AMA Superbike series.

Come join us on our annual camping trip and see some historic racing to boot! Most of us stay at Plymouth Rock Camping Resort across the street from the track and a bit south on Route 67. Bring a tent in your MG and ask when you register to be with the Chicagoland MG Club group. The cost is about fifty dollars a night for two persons and one tent. Telephone: 920-892-4252.

The schedule and reduced price tickets are available for the races at, 800.365.7223.
