About this event

Come kick off the 2019 season and celebrate with your SCCA friends at the Checkered Flag Party at Ferrari Lake Forest (formerly Lake Forest Sportscars) on Saturday, February 16. You will have the chance to enjoy music, food and drink among the Ferraris at Rick Mancuso's beautifully remodeled dealership. You can also take a ride in a Ferrari, weather and time permitting. The buffet dinner will be followed by presentation of awards for 2018.

Each attendee will receive a color print of Jim Swintel's special artwork used for the region's 2018 June Sprints shirts. This is the second is a series of seven art pieces, each celebrating part of the Chicago Region's "Seven Decades of Motorsports" and leading up to the 75th anniversary in 2023.
