BMW Informal Social at 11:00 AM at MB2 Raceway – January 24th

Indoor Karting and Chili

Those cold winter months bring harsh road conditions, and may have some racers itching to get on the track. The indoor karting facility, MB2, in Grimes, provides a safe and fun driving experience for most ages. Join your fellow BMW CCA members on Sunday, January 24, 2016 for friendly racing at MB2 Raceway, 1350 SE Gateway Dr., suite #108, Grimes.


If you want to drive there is nothing you need to do ahead of time. When you show up the day of the event you can decide then if you will race. Yes, you will be racing against fellow BMW CCA club members. MB2 provides everything you need, so there is no need to bring your own racing helmet. You can expect to pay $25 for a race. The facility is family-friendly as they have bleachers for spectators and various arcade games. The race track is so quiet that a baby can sleep next to the track. No, seriously, there’s photographic evidence.


We have reserved a party room to host a chili cook-off. Bring your best chili, or a dessert to share. If you aren’t as inclined to cook you are welcome to bring non-perishable food items that we will donate to the Iowa Food Bank.

We will meet at 11 a.m. We won’t have an end-time and you can hang around in the spectator area as long as you want. They close at 8 p.m. on Sundays, but we anticipate our event lasting until around 2 p.m. You can enjoy racing and chili at your leisure, and you can come and go as you please. If you have any questions, please email
