Windy City BMW Car Show

One week from today! Join us at Autobahn Country Club, the Chicago area’s exclusive private racetrack club! Bring your BMW, Mini, racecar or any make/model car to show at Autobahns beautiful facilities. Please register by clicking on the link below so we can reserve a spot for you. Cars will be parked on the lawn right inside the front entrance to the facility. The show is open to any car, but the focus will be on BMW’s, Mini’s and track or racecars.
Enjoy the cars and the people in the car show corral, but make sure to explore the other Autobahn activities and enjoy the amenities of this private racetrack club.
We are proud to announce we are a stop on the Bridgestone Tour and their rolling exhibit will be on site along with their experts to answer all your tire questions.Buy a set of tires and get them mounted and balanced for free! Come join us and spend the day watching CCA members drive their cars on a real racetrack, grab a lunch from the ACC food pavilion, try your hand at karting ($25 for 15 minutes), and stay for an Italian buffet style dinner (advance ticket purchase required), and visit with your new found friends.

Was telling my wife about this event. She asked which car we should bring......I told her she should pick two!!

We attended an event at Autobahn last year. Everyone, including the kids, had a good time.

Do you know if there will be any test drives this year Trent?

Big update! The good folks at Bridgestone Tire have selected our event as part of their 2016 National Tour. Tire experts will be on site with demonstrations and experts to answer all of your tire questions. Buy a set of tires and get them mounted/balanced for free! This is one of only seven tour events to be held in the US, so don't miss it.

There will also be special treat for those who show up at 11:00. Details will be given on the day of the show. It will be fun. That is all.

I'm looking for some new cool vendors that can use some exposure for their products and would donate certificates, products, t-shirts, etc.

Any recommendations are welcomed.

Racecar=excellent!

Trying to attract more racecars to this event. Don't have to be BMW's, old, new, domestic, Japanese, whatever. Batmobile would be cool.

Well, more of a track car than race car...but ya know. It has a full halo seat, rear roll cage, most of thr interior is gone and sticky tires so, it kinda qualifies.

I have wife approval and will be bringing a car to show. The race car is in the shop getting the front subframe replaced with a reinforced one, so sadly, it will not be making an appearance.

Weather looks perfect. I'm looking forward to this!

If you let leaks stop you from bringing your e30 out, it will never see sun again!
