The Windy City Miata Club (WCMC) is a not-for-profit organization designed to promote the enjoyment of good will and fellowship derived from owning a Mazda Miata. Though most of our membership is located in the Chicagoland area, we have members in Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana, and other states. As of the end of 2014, we have 328 members, with 221 Miatas.

You're invited to join us at our next meeting or activity! Regular club meetings are held the fourth Tuesday of each month at Fuddruckers in Downers Grove (Click here).

New and prospective members are always welcome at our events. Some events may require an RSVP to the organizer. If you want more information about an upcoming event, please email the event organizer at the address shown on the event page or you may contact us here.
 

A Word from our President - July 2015

June has come and gone.  After many months of planning our twenty fifth event happened.  We had a fantastic time.  We had several highlights that weekend.  However I would have to say that having a 2016 Miata with us for Friday and Saturday was very exciting.   Imagine the Windy City Miata Club was the first private showing in the country.   Rod Laughlin from Mazda was there to show us the car and to drive it on our Saturday morning tour.   Our other special guest was Chris Knight from Moss Motors.  Chris has been a friend of our club for the past 4 ½ years.  She was finally able to get away and join us for an event.  It was a pleasure meeting her (finally) and everybody from our club who spent any time with her realized that they had a new friend.   We have 75 Miata’s take part in the festivities over the weekend.  There are pictures of all the fun that took place. Please be sure to check out our galleries of the event here on our web site. 

Saturday morning we did a drive out to Rockford. We had some great views of the Rock River and enjoyed some great view and fun roads.  I have to say that seeing the 2016 Miata in my rearview mirror was a fun thing and it is a great looking car.   When we got back to the hotel we had hosted a car show.  It was another great event.  Our Saturday ended with a banquet, with some great times of getting to know and catching up with some of our clubs earlier members who have since moved away.   Sunday, Sunday Sunday (for those of you who remember the us30 drag strip commercials) we took a little trip down to the Autobahn in Joliet.  We did a track tour and were given a tour of a race shop on the grounds after watching a spec Miata Race.  I hope that all sounded half as much fun as it really was. 

Now let’s talk about this Month.  We will start off with being a part of one of the oldest 4th of July parades in the country.  The Evanston 4th of July parade.  It’s quite a parade to drive in.  Honestly is over a mile long and it really gives our clutch leg a workout.   Our burger night will be at Sullivan’s Irish pub in Midlothian this month. As you can see we have our events all over the area.   Let’s not forget our general membership meeting on July 28th  our meetings are always at Fuddruckers in Downers Grove.  We start at 7:30 but come early and have dinner with us.  I am sure you will find us to be a friendly group.

I would be amiss if I didn’t mention our auto cross group.  There are 3 coordinators who go out very early in the morning on race day. Who put in a full day to make sure you have a great time.  They are always willing to help you out to help you have the best possible time.

As you can see there is something for everybody with our club.  Come on out and pay us a visit and see what we are all about.
