BMW Informal Social at noon – MB2 Raceway in Grimes – January 21

BMW Informal Social at noon – MB2 Raceway in Grimes – January 21

The Iowa BMW Club will once again sponsor a winter Chili/Karting event at MB2 Raceway in Grimes on January 21. This has been an exciting event the last several years with a great selection of chilies and hot racing on the go-kart track among our members.

MB2 Raceway provides an indoor track with a party room. This event is for racers and spectators alike. Bring your helmet, or use a loaner, and try to match speeds with the some of the best drivers in our Club. On the track, racers will reach speeds up to 45 MPH, with safety an important factor.

For more information, check this site: http://www.mb2raceway.com/, or contact David Brighton at 515-570-5549.
