Agreed - I've run with both, and even though I'm a Chicagoan, I agree, they are uptight. Badger is better - same goes for PCA. Milwaukee better than Chicago - but I am glad they all run so many events. I'm going wheel to wheel this year, so I'll see 'em less :jammin:salvador said:We have two in our area in Northern Illinois. The Chicago chapter is too strict IMO. They run a radar gun in the kink at Road America. I heard that they even decided to run the chicane that the Superbikes run for the last couple of events to bypass the kink.
The Badger Bimmer's is a lot better group if you're looking to do a DE with the BMW guys in the area. They are safe, but they don't go overboard like the Chicago chapter.
Now there's a good idea.mooch said:
I agree with wknight1 - most Vette owners in Louisiana are garage queens and drive coupes with automatic trannys... They rarely drive the cars hard and attends DEs or SCCA events. I am hoping to enjoy the Houston car scene much more than the lackluster Louisiana car scene.wtknght1 said:I'll be instructing for them during the April DE event at Mid Ohio. I've been teaching for them (and many others) for about 10 years.
The BMW guys always put on a quality and safe show. I'd instruct for them anytime. They treat everyone, especially their instructors, very well!
I still find it amazing that the Porsche Clubs, Audi, BMW, etc all put on exceptional driving events. Where are the Corvette clubs!?!?!? I'm sure it's happened, but in all these years, I cannot recall a single vette club putting on a DE event - east of Mississippi that is. Most vette clubs just want to take theirs out of the garage once a month and show it. What a huge waste. :screwy:
