This is exciting.  I hope it brings some more attention to the event.  

I'll have my Challenge car at the Hagerty Garage+Social Chicago facility for the Meet in the Middle Micro car show Aug 14th.  I hope I don't leave to much oil on their floor.

I wasn't sure so I entered both concourse and the cats and caffeine. Possible to do both?

I hope they'll be back for 2025

If you scatter your engine during the autocross, car will be in both locations at the same time

I just checked the $2000 challenge website.   The really important question I want answered is will the following be available to concourse participants:

"enjoy some free coffee and donuts"

Yes! The free coffee and donuts will be open to all.

Also, if we hit the 500 car cap for Cars & Caffeine, this is going to be a seriously large crowd!

I'm considering the option to camp at the track this year.  How's that going to work logistically with the car meet?  Will there be a designated area for GRM campers?  Will we have to be moving our camp before sunrise on sunday?

In reply to Lof8 - Andy :

I'm working on the event map now, but you won't have to move and I'll try to get campers in as convenient of a location as possible. It's looking like somewhere around where tech inspection normally is at this point, but I'm open to suggestions.

I planned to spectate anyway, so signing up for Cars and coffee was a no brainer.

Forgot to sign up for camping...   surprise

Relatively close to some bathrooms would be cool but I realize that may not be very easy to do.

If I put everybody far away from everything then it'll just be a better reason for pit bikes.laugh
