2023 Blackhawk Farms Raceway
Absolutely stunningly perfect weather greeted the over three dozen instructors, experienced solo drivers and top autocrossers for our third annual track spa day at Blackhawk Farms Raceway. Divided into three run groups with liberal (but safe) passing rules, allowed everyone to have as much track time as they could handle, with no obligations outside their own driving skills, and with plenty of open space. Everything from quick E30s to the newest mega horsepower cars from Munich joined in the fun and the day flowed well and incident free. We ended with forty or so minutes of standing start autocross runs where all who wanted to give it a go got roughly half a dozen chances to lay down a hot lap around the nearly 2 mile seven turn track. We’ll be doing it again next year so if you missed it look for the sign up on Motorsportreg coming as soon as we nail down a date.
All of this fun could not have happened if it weren’t for our loyal sponsors. So a special thanks goes out to BMW of Schererville, Clearwater Capital Partners and Big door—thanks a heap from us all. And also a shout out to the gang that helped it run smoothly: Randy and Bev Everson, Tom Schulty, John Roelsmeier, Jim Waldman, Dave Farnsworth, John Schwarz and John Saccameno.
