Hey guys,

What is the condition of the pavement in the Alexian Field? I've been going to Maywood Park with WindyCityBMW club, but the pavement there is rapidly deteriorating and it is currently in horrible condition. I am having second thoughts of attending any events at the Maywood Park if they don't fix the pavement, which I doubt they will.

Thanks in advance.

Vasil

The pavement at Alexian Field is pretty much brand new. It was put up about two years ago and seen very little abuse. Only one other clubs runs there and that is WindyCityMiataClub. It is completely new compared to Maywood Park.

Here's a link with some pictures to an event WCMC did and you'll get an idea of the surface:

Thanks for the quick reply! It looks like the pavement is in MUCH better condition! I might have to sign up with a different club if WindyCityBMW is unable or unwilling to change venues.

Unfortunately it seems there are very few venues to put on this kind of event. Either locations are unwilling to provide the use of their lot or we get something like Maywood were it's a rally course :confused:

Looking forward to running at this new location :thumbup:
If I'm not O.T.R then I will be at the 1st autoX killing cones in da rusty trusty 2.slow and eating that nice MK2 GTi 16v for lunch. :laugh:

BTW folks, about a month ago I had to give up my 2nd favorite thing..... Speeding!!
Since I got my CDL I have been in the right lane on the HWY :thumbsdown:

And thank you CVO board for getting a better location for this year of autoXing, a big :thumbup: goes out to you all.

I plan on it :bananadance:

It will be my first time ever autocrossing and I don't think I will have summer tires on for at least the first event. The all season dunlops are going to be screaming. I think I am in D class right off the bat, but it will be fun.

Can't wait to see how the new venue feels.

... also who do I contact to get my last year's trophy in class X2. I would appreciate if whoever is in charge will bring it to the first event. PLS

Thank You
