  • Recommended rally routes in the area?

    I'm going to be renting a car end of this month to compare it to my current '06 M5 so I can understand what I want to do with this thing long term. That being said, I'll have the car for a day and wanted to do a nice bit of driving to form an impression of the car.

    Anyone have recommend routes in the area for previous meets? Many years ago there was a meet that went from Schaumburg to Lake Geneva, WI that was pretty nice. I'm sure there has been plenty of these little rallys and was hoping some of the routes could be shared. Hills, curves, forests, all great elements I'd like to capture. I don't need any "safe" stretches for speed. I don't mind a lot of stops. Part of this test is to see how much better newer generation automanuals are over the e60 M5's SMG. (the only part of the car I really don't like).

    This is a personal route I enjoy. Great for turns and fairly open but I'm looking for a little more.

    Some new ones is Rockford to Dixon. Haven't done that as a group but nice roads. Did that once with another group.
