IL track days

I have yet to have a track day and I'm aware that alot of you guys do this on a regular basis. I plan on trying to give this a run next summer. Any of you guys been to blackhawk farms raceway or know of any other tracks close to the chicagoland area? and what have been your experiences with these tracks?

Autobahn in Joliet is good. I havent been there but I have buddies who have and they really like it. There are a couple in Michigan and Putnam is right outside Indianapolis.

I always have a good time at autobahn. Even the short north course is fun, IMO. Full course is a proper race track.

Hope to make it to blackhawk farms next year.

This summer went to Gingerman in South Haven, MI for the first time. That was fine, too. A little overkill riding a 10r on that track, though.

Next year may make the trek to Wisconsin and Road America.

yea I was on the autobahn joliet site and didn't seem to see any info on motorcycle track days, maybe because its too late in the season. I'm going to have to get some pants, boots and gloves for next year. looking forward to it though

Autobahn is hosted by Sportbiketracktimes (don't know if any other clubs do). They don't have any days for autobahn for the rest of the year.
