Question track day clubs in the Midwest (Chicago)

Are there any groups other than STT and Motovid (the one for Blackhawk Farms)? I think NESBA use to be around but not anymore. Autobahn in Joliet is only STT and I am wondering if any other orgs go there or Grattan or even Blackhawk Farms on a weekend.. motovid does only Wednesdays.

Re: track day clubs in the Midwest (Chicago)

Years back there used to be a bunch of organizations or individuals that rented track time. But now for Blackhawk and Autobahn -its Motovid and STT.
Putnam Park outside Indy is an option too. STT and MCRA run dates there.
Mid Ohio runs their own program too if your up for driving a bit further.

Your other option is to look at club racing with CCS or Wera.
Ill be at Blackhawk racing CCS this weekend.

Re: track day clubs in the Midwest (Chicago)

There are weekends at BHF that are run by the motovid staff, but are not officially "motovid" days.. I believe they're sponsored by JOS motorsports or something. Check the calendar on the BHF website.


There are lots of ways to get on the track in this area. Don't forget about Putnam Park and Road America.

Sweet! I will be there for the Rider's Clinic on Friday, I think some guys are practicing Friday as well. Send me a PM if you want to chill while up there. I'd like to get into racing but I dont even know where to start.

If it has to be one day, make it Sunday. There's autocross and karts with a cookout that day.
