Gingerman and Grattan? Those are both reasonable for a drive in my opinion. This is an awesome idea though.

Anyone know sources for import car shows/meets? Everything I google ("car shows") returns classic car stuff...

Working on Grattan, now.

Grattan is like Gingerman, only much better

I did this for a few years on here.. a few years back, but never got a whole lot of interest. I'll try to keep tabs, so maybe this ex-subie owner (and possibly future again) can get in touch with some other guys at track events.

www.mvptracktime.com already has up the schedule for some Autobahn Country Club events in 2014, btw.

MVP events already added...Autobahn FULL events have caught my attention and I think I am going to book them.

So far, posted schedules for Autobahn, Road America, Blackhawk, Route 66, and a couple others, have been added. Posted SCCA and MSCCA have been added.

Still working on Grattan. Any others...c'mon guys...what Autocross groups do you run with???

This is always a good reference... especially for a few of the tracks in the Midwest that got missed. http://www.trackpedia.com/wiki/Track...tes_Of_America

www.3ballsracing.com does a good amount of Grattan time, usually at least 2 full weekends, and also Gingerman.

Hadn't even considered drifting, since I never hear about it. Didn't know they held events around here...

Most of our solo events are at Majestic Star Casino in Gary, which is only a 10 minute drive from Chicago (maybe more now without Cline Ave bridge)

Unless I missed it are there any autocross training classes during the week? I'm in the restaurant business and really want to get into autocross but it's all on weekends .
