Here in the Midwest we enjoy a rich car culture. Even in Central Illinois, away from the big cities, we have plenty of car related things to do. We also have many activities within a few hours drive from here as well. I wanted to share some key website to get people started.
Social Events and Groups
- One of the larger social groups is the Central Illinois Automotive Enthusiasts group on Facebook.
- Peoria Cars & Coffee and Friday Night Lights events. These events draw hundreds from all around and feature every kind of car, 4×4, rat rod, classic, custom, sports car, pony car, etc.
- Bloomington/Normal Automotive Enthusiasts group.
There are 2 main websites to find and register for automotive events, Clubregistration.net and Motorsports.reg. Most PCA, BMWCCA, SCCA, Audi club, and others use one of these two sites so they are a great place to find events.
The Central Illinois SCCA has the most autocrosses in Central Illinois. As with many clubs, they use Motorsports.reg for their event registration.
