The Steering Wheel

Hard to believe that 2014 is almost over. With temps before Thanksgiving already dropping to the single digits, the track tires packed away and the winter tires are on, are we in for a repeat of last winter??? I certainly hope not.

If you’re less than enthusiastic about sunlight deprivation and frigid temps, there are several club events planned to help break the winter monotony. Karting is back for a second season with four events planned, starting on January 10 and wrapping up on March 21. The Annual Dinner on January 17 will return to the Stonegate in Hoffman Estates, which always promises great food, great people to socialize with, and always a very popular feature, lots of free stuff.

The club has been invited back to the Chicago Auto Show on February 13th for the second media day. See announcement page for details. Space will be limited.

One event not on the calendar yet is the Spring tour. A Tourmeister is needed, no experience necessary. Planning a spring tour route and destination could be another great way to beat winter blues.

Watch the Breeze or check the web site for more event details.

Hope you enjoy the holiday season! I know Jackie is going to love the holiday tree I have planned this year. Found a new purpose for used track tires. I think it will look great with a few lights and painted in Motorsport colors - Happy Holidays!
