Perfect timing! My MCS is built and waiting for its boat ride. Sounds like
there will be a club in place about the time it arrives :-)
Any thoughts about types of events ? Autocross, Open Track ?
For Autocross, you might be able to hook with the OVR region
of the SCCA to host your Mini club as its own class. I can get you a contact
name if that is of interest.
For Open Track events, you can definitely hookup with the BMW club for events at MidOhio
and Putnam Park. You also might be able to hook up with the Ohio Shelby club at MidOhio.
I am running with them this Friday (Oct 3), granted in a Mustang, but I believe they've opened
their doors to non-Fords now.
'04 MCS IB/W, white wheels, Sport pkg, Cold Weather pkg, Premium pkg,
Rain Sensing wipers, cloth interior. Pioneer 12 disc ready & waiting.
