CAROC Open Track Day, Joliet, IL

Chicago Alfa Romeo Owners Club invite you to the inaugural Autobahn Spring
track event in Joliet, IL.

Please see www.autobahncountryclub.net for track details. We will be
running the North track.

There will be no timed runs. The entire weekend is open track lapping!!

In the next week, an entry form will be posted to the CAROC Web site
(www.caroc.com).

We pride ourselves on running a fun and safe event. We need to limit the
number of entrants for this event to maintain a safe environment and
adequate track time for all. The event will be capped at 70 cars.
Because of the proximity of the track to Chicago and the Midwestern Council
events, we expect the event to sell out quickly. For this reason, we would
like to offer entry to AROC members for the weekend price of $350.

We get tired of seeing Porsches and Corvettes. We want Alfas!!!

Touring is available for $50/day. There will be 2 45-minute touring
sessions per day during lunch. Touring groups sizes will be managed so you
are guaranteed at least 1 touring session or both if space allows.

As always, touring is free to volunteers working the event. Please email
me directly if you're interested in working a corner or grid. Please
include which day(s) you are available and what you would like to do. We
have a need for corner workers, grid personnel (experience preferred), track
control (experienced required), tech inspection (experience required), and
registration desk.

Food:

We will have an informal gathering on Saturday night at the burger and beer
pub next to Autobahn on IL-53. Directions and information will be
available at the track.

Why is the schedule so tight?

Isn't it frustrating to pay $350 to watch other people go around? We want
you to get your money's worth!! The schedule permits at least 2hrs of track
time per-day for each participant. Traditionally, people and cars are
tired at the end of the day. There are a few diehards (yours truly!) that
still want to run. The open groups are for you. Those that still have gas
in the tank (literally and figuratively). We will try to get comparable
cars out on track in the open groups, though I expect them to be on small
side. Please be prompt when being called to false grid. Groups will go
out on time. It's your session time to manage.

Please email me directly with any questions.

We look forward to seeing you at Autobahn Country Club in April.
