  Chicagoland MG Club:Club Info


by Scott Fohrman

The following is a list of VSCDA and MC events (as described in the previous article). I have made brief comments about some of the really special events. Let me know what else to add! I can provide my favorite routes to the tracks on request. In fact, I'd love to trade notes with you on your preferred scenic backroad paths. If there is sufficient interest, we'll print them and bring them to the next meeting.

MC weekends usually involve an autocross on Saturday (ax) and wheel to-wheel (ww) racing on Sunday. Some weekends involve a Drivers School (ds) as well. The MC schedule is still tentative as of this writing, so check before heading up. Racing occurs rain or shine (though not everybody goes out on the track).
