    Spring is finally here in Chicago and May 1st is the first Supercar Saturdays of the year! It is held at the Glen in Glenview, and runs from 8 am - noon. Visit the website to register for preferred parking (a new revised website will be up in a few days). We will be meeting at 7:15-7:30 am that morning, at the Starbucks parking lot in the Willowbrook Town Center, on the corner of Illinois Route 83 and Plainfield Road to do a drive to the event, for those who are interested.

    I am definitely in for this event, and the drive to the event as well. I'm pretty excited about showing off my car and seeing lots of other great cars! :biggrin:

    Supercar Saturdays was an awesome event - we had good weather, 250-300 cars on display and about 3000 people attending. There was a good Tesla turnout, with a variety of Tesla Roadsters colors on display. Join us at the next Supercar Saturdays, the first Saturday of each month from 8 am to noon (June 5th, July 3rd, August 7th, September 4th)!

    I don't get it... why choose the same day as Indy Raceway's Emerging Tech Day? Divide and conquer?

    I have to agree, May 7 is not a good choice for 21st century supercars. I guess the old-fashioned 20th century supercars weren't coming to emerging Tech Day anyway. ;-)

    I am registered for both, but have decided to go to Indy. Supercar Saturdays is a great event (and I love bringing a high performance EV to a predominantly petrol event), but I can't pass up an opportunity to drive my Roadster around the Brickyard. Any Roadster owners needing a charge on the way to Indy, I am located 1 mile south of I-80 near where I-80 and I-94 merge south of Chicago. PM me for details.

    Oh hey! You sure you want to do that? In late December there might be a week or so where you might need to wear a long sleeve shirt!
