Okay! I've got the 411 on the Chicago event. I guess the White Sox are out of town that weekend. Here's the link to the sign up page and the info on the event. So the big question is which day and what time.

WELCOME TO SCION FR-S FIRST DRIVE TOUR
The 2013 Scion FR-S Ride and Drive Experience

The wait is almost over. One of the most anticipated automotive events of the year - the launch of the 2013 Scion FR-S, is here. You can see for yourself what the excitement is about, by getting behind the wheel of the FR-S during the Scion FR-S First Drive Tour - a series of exclusive ride and drive events taking place at 16 cities around the country.

The FR-S First Drive tour is stopping by your area at US Cellular Field, in Chicago, IL June 30th and July 1st. Register now for one of a limited number of spots and you will be among the first people in the country to experience the Scion FR-S first hand.

At each FR-S First Drive event, participants will be able to see up close the car that is "bringing the sport back to the car". Learn more about the FR-S and sample the balanced performance characteristics unique to a front mounted, flat boxer-powered rear wheel drive sports coupe - designed for enthusiasts by enthusiasts. Experience the precision-engineered handling and driving fun expected of the successor to the legendary "Hachi-roku".

Like every model Scion offers, the FR-S is also about personalization. Customize the FR-S to fit your style from the many customization possibilities directly from Scion, or through our Scion OPTOMIZE aftermarket program partners.

You can also expect standout styling, performance, value, fuel efficiency, driving dynamics, and safety features from all Scion models. And as a marque of Toyota, all Scion vehicles are built with world-class Toyota quality and reliability.

Check it out for yourself, and tell your friends. Just fill out the information requested on the registration page before spots run out - and you'll be one of the first people in the country to get behind the wheel of the 2013 Scion FR-S.

Thanks for stopping by!

You get the idea) Reports say they have had some after market people/products at these events and it would be a good change for us MT guys to take an AT for a little spin. By the end of June there might be a few more FR-Ss in the area.
do they give you lap times for this? cuz that would be mo funs.
