Chicago Region SCCA is back for a second year at the Geneva Concours d’Elegance on August 25, 2019
Just as the race cars passed Seibkens the course took a downhill hard left followed by a right sweeper that passed along the eastern shore of Elkhart Lake.
Weather was not a factor this time, sunny and warm, (rather hot by the end of the day) but very nice overall. There were three recommended stops on the tour allowing participants to sample and pick up cheese, wine or beer.
The Chicago Region SCCA, June Sprints® is the longest consecutively run SCCA National Road Race.
The 1951-52 Elkhart Lake Races were the first and last events with true wheel to wheel completion through downtown Elkhart Lake.
On Saturday May 18th the Chicago Region had organized a special event just for members of the Sports Car Club of America and their guests to view a collection of privately owned vehicles.
After exiting Briggs’ Bend the track ran up-hill to a soft rolling peak and then headed back down hill to the “Hard Right” the last turn of the original race circuit.

As the cars of the 1950 Elkhart Lake race negotiated “Ted’s Turn” a tight 110 degree right hander, the field then headed west on a gentle uphill run. The first marker Peck’s Alley, is 0.1 tenth of a mile west of County J on Birchwood Drive (County JP, back in 1950 County X). The second marker on this part of the circuit is for Briggs’ Bend at the intersection of North Turtle Bay Road. This right hand bend in the road is followed with a sudden 15 to 20 foot drop in elevation.
