Default New from Illinois

Hello everyone, just wanted to introduce myself. I bought my first miata midway through last summer to be my dedicated autox car. So far I love it. It's a 1994 R-package with super low miles

Illinois is a big place. Can you be more specific?

Lisle, eh? Some good tools are made there. There are several "greater Chicago area" guys here and every now and then we get together for drives and such. I believe there is a drive in the works now.

Let's hear a bit more about the car!

And don't forget the cat pictures.

Welcome Matt,
I heard RT 66 is a pretty big course. Where can I find a 2014 schedule?
Don't forget to put Yorkville in your location.
Cheers,
JB

RT66 is a great course typically 60-70sec lap times on average.
Here's the link to their site with the schedule. Feel free to come out this Sunday!
