Chicago Region SCCA Track Event #6

Autobahn Country Club

About this event

Kick off your weekend with a Friday evening of driving on the Autobahn North Course. 

This noncompetitive event is for anyone who wants to improve their driving skills and have fun on track. All you need is a valid driver's license and a car (no trucks or SUVs) in good working order.

The Autobahn North Course is a challenging 1.46-mile circuit with nine turns and two straights designed to test your abilities. Drivers are divided into three run groups by skill and experience: novice (approx. 0-2 track days), intermediate (approx. 3-5 track days), and advanced (approx. 6+ track days). Each run group is scheduled to have three 20-minute sessions; the schedule may be adjusted in response to changing conditions.

The fee for SCCA members is $155; for nonmembers, $170. Not a member? You can join now at

Run group assignments are made by SCCA staff after you register. Please include information on your profile about any autocross and non-SCCA  Chicago track driving experience so you can be assigned to the correct run group. If you are new to Chicago Region track days and do not provide a driving resume, you will be placed in the novice group.

Check-in on event day begins at 2:30 p.m. There is a mandatory drivers’ meeting at 4:30, and on-track activities start at 5.

Track Touring

It gives participants and guests the chance to drive low-speed, paced laps around the track.This is the time to take your guests for a ride! There is no charge. Track touring will be held midway through the event and will last about 15 minutes. Anyone 18 years old or older with a valid driver's license may drive in track touring. Sign up at the track for this option. There are a few requirements.
