Blackhawk Farms is a 1.95 mile, 7 turn private circuit racetrack located in South Beloit, Illinois on 216 acres. The track is on the border between Wisconsin and Illinois, within 90 miles of both Milwaukee and Chicago. During the off-season Blackhawk is making significant improvements to both the track and the facilities. Visit the Blackhawk web site to see pictures of the improvements.

Many automobile insurance policies now exclude coverage for events that take place on a race track. The only way to know if your policy still covers driving schools is to read your policy. If you find that your policy does not cover our driving schools you can purchase event insurance from Lockton Affinity Motorsports. BMW CCA members get a discount on the purchase of both single and multiple event driving school insurance.
