Mini-Meet in Chicago then to SOC '07

I came up with an idea for those living near Chicago or will be traveling past Chicago heading to SOC '07. There is an indoor go-kart track north of Chicago in Buffalo Grove. I race there regularly, and I think it would be a wicked idea for those interested for us all to meet there, race, and head to SOC as one big happy group.

I be forward, its not the cheapest thing, but I guarantee you that you will leave addicted regardless the price. If I can get a number of people I will call the place and see what kind of deal I can get.

This place is top of the line, and the gokarts are fast (200cc 4stroke engines with racing slicks). I'll be able to teach you all the course before hand if you desire so I dont embarass you all.

The places website is: http://www.chicagoindoorracing.com/

Let me start off the list of interest... Please follow along.

I think getting ready for SOC and the drive there itself will be enough "stuff" for me that day. Why don't we do a Midwest meet this spring and then another one mid summer before SOC?

Well the main problem with that is theres not many people who live near chicago to go just have a mini meet and they drive home. Theres people from iowa and minn who are heading to SOC they pass by Chicago along the way.

I think we discussed this in the MN/WI caravan thread. I don't think there's any time to do a mini-meet in Chicago on the way there - as it is we're planning to leave at 7 am, meet some people in Iowa City, leave IC at noon, through Chicago at 4, arrive SOC at 8.

IIRC there was talk about meeting up with anyone from Chicago area at a convenient rest stop/gas station/exit somewhere near where I-94 and I-80 intersect.

We already have had Midwest meets, 3 or 4 off the top of my head where 10 plus cars have shown up from all around. We will have something before SOC, Maybe closer to the MN guys seeing they came down here last time. Great idea! Just dont think its the right time.

For a good day of karting and other stuff for a good meet, I know I'd be willing to make the trek to Chicago for a weekend. And I'm pretty sure Palmer and a couple others from the MN area would be game as well.

This would be a good thing for the end of April/May

Yeah I was thinking sometime late May. Maybe we can do the carting then? Last time we met in Madison WI and cooked out and hung out. It was good time. Seems like a lone time ago.....PALMER still had the 9-3
