NASA is a pretty big racing club that started coming to the Midwest couple years ago. I got the below info about the "Welcome to NASA" meet and see if there's anyone here is interested in attending.
For those of you who are interested in getting into track driving, check out the link in my sig. No race car required, just your everyday car is fine. It's totally newbie friendly and with instructor riding along.
To kick off the 2007 Midwest NASA season, certified NASA tech center Factory 5 Motoring in Schaumburg, along with NASA and PIC Performance are holding a Spring Meet and Greet to introduce local IL people to the NASA Pro Racing and HPDE program. The Meet and Greet will give people an opportunity to get a better understanding of what NASA's racing programs are about, including the HPDE, Time Trial, and wheel-to-wheel Pro Racing series.
Seasoned Honda Challenge and HPDE veterans will be present alongside in-car footage from the race track, first-hand experiences and their own purpose-built race cars. NASA officials will also be on hand to answer any and all questions related to NASA and it's racing programs.
Complimentary breakfast will be provided courtesy of Factory 5 and PIC Performance, and everyone is welcome to take advantage of this opportunity to learn more about what their cars can really do at the race-track, and see what NASA is all about.
