Non-Profit, Lemons of Love is hosting an inaugural Track Day for YOU! If you haven’t driven at a track day before, this is your chance to take your street car (no trucks or sports utility vehicles) on the fast and exhilarating track at Autobahn Country Club!

We’ll be driving on the Autobahn South Course – a 2.06-mile circuit with fifteen turns and a few fairly long straights designed to test your abilities. There will be three run groups divided by experience: novice (0-2 track days), intermediate (3-5 track days), and advanced (6+ track days). Each run group is scheduled to have five 20-minute sessions; the schedule may be adjusted in response to changing conditions. **5TH SESSION JUST ADDED!

**** Unless specifically authorized by the Chief Steward, passengers are not allowed in a vehicle! This excludes pace laps and Hot Laps**** (all passengers for hot laps and touring laps MUST sign the waiver) The 20 minute sessions are you, in your car, on track.  The HOT LAPS are a purchasable RIDE at the track in which you get to ride with a pro driver with a pre-chosen car (Must be 18 years or older). Touring laps are considered pace laps which cars tour behind a pace car at Highway speeds. No equipment (helmet) is required and passengers may ride with anyone in attendance. All passengers must be over 18 and sign the waivers.

The pre-registration fee is $300 and same day registration fee at the track is $350.  Anyone running the track day will get a free t-shirt! There is a $10 entry fee for any family and friends that would like to join you this day! This $10 only includes track entry. *Kids 12 and under get in free!

The $300 (or $350) fee includes lunch for one and you guessed it, TRACK TIME! 

Check-in on event day begins at 7:00 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. There is a mandatory drivers meeting at 8:30 a.m., and on-track activities start at 9:05 a.m.

Run group assignments are made by staff after you register. Please provide information about any autocross and non-Autobahn track driving experience so you can be assigned to the correct run group.

The goal is for you to have fun with your car and become a better driver. We hope you’ll be there! Check out our event poster with more details below:


Lemons of Love:

Lemons of Love (LOL) is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization founded by Jill Swanson Peltier, a cancer fighter and owner of Fresh Air Systems Technologies (F.A.S.T) in Des Plaines, IL. She created LOL after being diagnosed with stage III colon cancer and going through chemotherapy in 2014. ‘Lemons of Love’ is based on the well-known expression, “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade,” but with a twist, “When life gives you lemons – share some love”

Lemons of Love, Inc. delivers Chemo Care Packages to patients undergoing chemotherapy at local hospitals and also sends them to cancer patients nationwide.  The Lemons of Love Chemo Care Packages are delivered in the form of care bags that are hand made by volunteers and contain special products that were essential in Jill's healing during her own cancer treatments.
