The Autobahn road course in Joliet is hosting seven racing series in one weekend. All seven series race on Sunday and should be some badass racing. I've seen a few of these guys race at Road American and they're all extremely competitive and fun to watch. Plus it's in Joliet, and not a three-hour drive up to Wisconsin.

Tickets are $30 if you buy online and $40 if you buy at the gate.

If enough people want to go we can definitely meet up beforehand. It's south of most members so it should be easy to find a good spot.

Oh yeah, the address to the track is:

Autobahn Country Club
3795 S Patterson Rd
Joliet Il 60436

It's a few minutes away from the Route 66 tracks

I'm still game, who else is in? Just want to get a head count to see who wants to carpool, meet down there, etc.

it will be interested to hear how this went.. I know a few people that are racing (got a ride) for this but we need the downtime to work on our cars since we are back at the track the following weekend!
