The MV12 Chicago itinerary must have changed. The Route 41 Track near Morocco, IN was advertised initially. It was a dragstrip only. Plans must have changed.

Two auto road courses I could find in Ill. Gateway near St. Louis and Blackhawk near the Wisconsin border. There is a motorcycle track near Peoria. Sure you weren't doing acid when you had this thought Dan?

Ha, Ha .... I thought Autobahn was a Go-Kart course. Were you able to use the Marauders on the track or their performance Audis, BMWs, and Lexei ??

Marauders and any other car that participated in the car show got to do some decent "parade lap" passes. Our car show was within a larger car show.
