Day 10, St Louis, MO to Chicago, IL

Spot the odd one out

Today saw a return to the Gateway Motorsports Park for rise and shine in awful raining conditions. This soon passed though and last night's raffle winners were given their hot laps in an F56.

Our 'medium' pizza
Tryon took advantage of the coding service being offered by one of the participants, and we now have one touch windows up, remote windows up from the lock button and auto fog lights with high beams which isn't illegal over here.

The route today took us along the banks of the Mississippi before returning to the Interstate to hunt down part of route 66, which is no longer a route in it's own right.

We however deviated for a Chicago style deep dish pizza, and you can tell by the expression on Morris' face how good it was!

We somehow made Chicago in good time, with no traffic to contend with and then it was off to my first Baseball game at US Cellular Field which MINI had secured an entire block of seats for us! I was completely taken aback by the stadium. The openness and space around the food outlets, choices and the views all makes Old Trafford, Anfield, Lords and the Kia Oval look well behind the times.

It was a great evening again, but not for the White Sox who lost to the Texas Rangers 16-0! As we got back to our hotel, we stopped by the adjacent fire station for a chat with the firefighters and got to look around the impressive fire trucks.

Next up, Cleveland!
