Mid-Southern Indiana Driving Cruise

Mid-Southern Indiana Driving Cruise

Oct 26, 9:00am - Oct 26, 1:00pm

The Uptown Cafe Restaurant and Cocktail Bar102 E Kirkwood AveBloomington, IN Map

This drive will be hosted by Hoosier BMW member Kijin "Mike" Woo!

We will drive to the southwest part of Bloomington area, all the way to French Lick using back roads and some state roads.
Total driving distance is about 100 miles and I am expecting around 2.5-3hrs of total driving time. From French Lick: Drivers can use normal state roads and highway toward I-69.

Meeting Place and Time:

9:00 am - The Uptown Cafe Restaurant in Bloomington for breakfast and briefing (I need total number of people who are coming so I can let or make a reservation!)

10:00 am - The driving starts
1:00 pm - Driving event will end at French Lick Marathon gas station.

Afterwards, feel free to enjoy French Lick or leave for home!

Mike notes: "I checked the roads today. It will be nice, some interesting, and hairy roads with three SS (Special Stage...like rally) for fun. Also, We will pass the highest overpass in Indiana!

Some roads are a bit rough but I didn't see any potholes. Some sections are beautifully repaved! Some corners are "totally invisible over the top of the hill then drop dead left or right" corners.

I drove X3 today but I strongly recommend sedans or coupes. I want to limit the number of cars to ten so we can control. Four cars already sign up. Grab a free ticket, so we know you are coming!"

Please let me know if you have any questions!

11th Annual Ohio River Tour

11th Annual Ohio River Tour

Oct 19, 7:00am - Oct 19, 3:00pm

Southbound Columbus Rest Area at Mile Marker 73 on I-65 Map

*** NEW DATE AND TIME ***

Don't miss the annual Ohio River Tour this year being led by Rob Clark! It's always a great drive with a lunch at the Overlook Restaurant in Leavenworth.

Meeting Place:
Departure location is the Southbound Columbus Rest Area at Mile Marker 73 off I-65.

Meet at 7:00 – depart at 7:15

Get gas to start with full tank!
Bring 2-way radios if available

We should arrive for lunch at the Overlook Restaurant (Leavenworth, IN) sometime between 1:00 & 1:30. We'll stop three or four times for rest breaks on the way down.

The date change will mean that we should see the leaves changing to their brightest colors!

Rob Clark is also looking for someone to ride shotgun with him.

For those who use iPhones, I recommend using an app called InRoute, a turn-by-turn navigation app. The basic app is free with a subscription based in-app purchase to read files that I'll be sharing for this trip. The monthly fee is $3.95, worth it for our Ohio River Tour. Cancel the subscription after the tour is over to keep the cost to a minimum.

Should anyone have a question, Rob's email is rotorheadbob@mac.com.

- SCCA Members = $30

Hoosier Chapter Member should arrive between 8:00 – 8:30 am

FEES:

LUNCH: There are a few places around but best to bring your own lunch, snacks and drinks.

Hoosier BMW will run as our own group so no special car preparations required except for helmets and normal safety equipment. You will provide your car number during registration with the class identifier of “BMW”.

CONVERTIBLES ARE WELCOME with no special safety devises as long as running with regular OEM safety belts.

We’re looking at 4-5 runs depending on the number of participants. Timing and scoring will be done by the SCCA folks. As in any Autocross, when we're not running, we'll be helping monitor the course and shag cones.

No Long sleeve cotton shirts or long pants required . . . closed toed shoes are required. No sandals of flip-flops when driving and usually not a good idea in the “hot pit” areas.

DRIVERS UNDER THE AGE OF 18 are consider “MINORS” and must have a duly signed “MINOR WAIVER” on the day of the event. Please see the Minor Waiver information and form at indyscca.org/information/MinorWaiverClarifications.htm.

Please feel free to contact Joe Vernon, BMW CCA Hoosier Chapter BoD if you have any additional questions at 317-691-1980 or jevernon@live.com. (FYI, Joe will be at the event and is a Notary if one is required.)

For additional information, please visit the Indy SCCA web site: www.indyscca.org/SoloPage.html -or- contact Joe Vernon, BMW CCA Hoosier Chapter BoD @ 317-691-1980 / jevernon@live.com.

FAQ's:

1. Helmets and other safety equipment: I pulled down the info regarding helmets. Is there any other safety equipment we need to know?

* We can setup a special class just for your club members. Car setup won't matter and tech will just be the safety items listed above.*ar really just needs to be street legal (battery tied down, seat belt, good brake and throttle response, all the lug nuts on car...)

2. As we would like to run as a club, not in any of the actual SCCA classes, is there anything we should know as it relates to car set-ups,tech inspection, etc?

* We can setup a special class just for your club members. Car setup won't matter and tech will just be the safety items listed above.

3. Are convertibles allowed?

* Yes. If there is a race harness though there needs to be a roll bar. No roll bar and regular belts is perfectly acceptable.

4. How many runs will the club be allowed to make?

*We normally don't know exactly how many runs until the event gets going, but on average it is 5 runs.

5. How will our club members be integrated into course workers?

* We will hand them out worker assignments right before their worker session. If you have members that have physical ailments preventing running please let us know and we can accommodate that. Most will probably be cone shaggers, but we may also use them in timing and scoring or other spots as well.

Putnam Park Road Course5251 S County Road 550 EGreencastle, IN46135-7517 Map

savethedate.windycitybmw.com

For the first time in many years Windy City BMW will be heading south to the challenging curves of Putnam Park Road Course near beautiful Greencastle, Indiana.

If you’ve been there before you’ll know what to expect and are no doubt scheduling the third weekend in September now (September 20-22).

If you’ve never been there, Putnam is a roughly 1.8 mile 10 turn road course, smooth, fast and varied, one of the nicest facilities in the Midwest.

Plan to join us for an exhilarating time, and probably one of the last reliably decent weekends in the Midwest driving season.
