Why settle for the same type of entertainment year after year? I mean the moon jumps and rock climbing walls are great fun but will they really leave your guests "buzzing" about your event even the day after?
What about entertaining guests over the age of 10?
Event planners love that we get the audience involved and we keep them involved.
"Eric, The Racing was HUGE again this year!! A special thanks to you and your crew for always being so prompt and courteous! You guys are great!"
J.B., Mount Prospect
How does it work?
These huge cars are nearly 2'L and they really move around the giant 26'L banked oval speedway. These are not slot cars. Each participant races using a full size steering wheel and shifter column. Just like real racing, you get the spectacular crashes, the high-speed spinouts and the bumping and rubbing of real stock car racing. This nonstop action has made Micro-Reality stock car racing the ultimate interactive, Chicago area festival experience!
Call us today at (847) 487-4500 to find out more or get a quote on your next event.
Have we done it before?
We have been racing at dozens of Chicago area festivals including: Beecher, Channahon, Crystal Lake, Dyer, IN, Elmhurst, Hickory Hills, Highland, IN, Mount Prospect, Oak Park, Orland Park, Richmond, Round Lake, St Charles, Steger, Tinley Park, Vernon Hills, Villa Park & Zion.
"Eric, Thanks for being at our event again this year. Your staff is the best and as always, the Racing is the most popular attraction! We look forward to seeing you again in 2009"

Is it expensive?
Pricing is based on the duration of the racing and we have structured a variety of different deals based on sponsor needs and budgets. Most groups get some type of local sponsorship and of course your group is welcome to charge per race to offset the cost. Per person entertained, it's more affordable than you might think.
How can I get a sponsor?
Getting a sponsor might be easier than you think. Their company names or ad messages are displayed on our electronic scoreboard and they can hang 2'H x 6'W banners (best size) around the track at no charge. Our staff is available to assist and/or pass out sponsor promotional items. For a slight additional charge we can logo a car itself and/or the steering consoles. Any company that wants a captive audience will see tremendous value in the racing. Automotive related businesses are always a great fit: car dealers, repair shops and insurance companies.
What about insurance?
While the racing is virtually liability-free, we carry a $1mm policy. We are happy to add your community or your sponsors as additionally insured for a slight charge.
Has the racing ever not worked?
On occasion we have been to events that were poorly organized, poorly promoted and thus, poorly attended.
If you are planning on 75 people attending your event you should probably book the moon jump instead.
What if we still aren't sure?
We are happy to attend your planning meeting to answer questions and we would love to have you see us in person. Just send us an email and we will give you a schedule of upcoming events. Of course we are happy to provide referrals too - just ask.
"The racing added a new and exciting dimension to the annual St. Charles Scarecrow Festival. It's the kind of activity that everyone can enjoy, from grade schoolers to grandparents. We look forward to working with this "PIT CREW" for many years to follow."
