I’ve been planning this road trip for quite some time. Every spring the Midwest Auto Media Association (MAMA – a group I joined a few years ago while covering the Chicago Auto Show) holds an event at the legendary Road America racetrack in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin. They assemble dozens of cars and light trucks sold in the US so that we journalists can just hop into and out of them, one right after another, for hot laps on the race course, spirited drives around the hilly Wisconsin county side, challenging runs through off-road courses for those vehicles capable of that, and even passes through a short autocross course. I’ve been told it is one of the best events of the year. This is the first year I’ve not had a conflict during the MAMA Spring Rally time, so count me in!
