Autobahn Podcast Featuring Britt Casey, Jr.

Britt Casey Jr. grew up at the Autobahn Country Club. He started racing motorcycles and quickly switched to four wheels. When I say he grew up at the track, he really did. He started in karts and then made his presence known racing Miata’s at a very young age. He was discovered at the track and still spends a lot of time at the Club.

We have a great interview for you this week! Britt Casey Jr.

Autobahn Podcast features Ron Dabisch

“My first car was a 1976 VW Rabbit, 4 speed with no soundproofing…it is my favorite car of all,” Ron Dabisch. When you make a statement like that, you need to hear the entire story. So tune in this week and hear the rest of the story.

 

Ron Dabisch is a constant presence at the Autobahn Country Club. I had a conversation with Ron about growing up in Chicagoland and how he started in the automotive and racing industry. He shares with us a great story about his first car and about how his neighbor supplied him with amazing guitars while he was growing up. Then we dive into the performance fleet of fantastic cars. He gives us a little back stage look into planning and organizing events at the Club. We really get to know Ron and it was great to sit down with him. And now here is Ron Dabisch on the Autobahn Country Club Podcast.

Thanks for tuning in this week!
