Autobahn Country Club Hosts Car and Track Event Open to the Public

Posted by: Annamarie Beretta

Autobahn Country Club, one of America's Premier Motorsports Clubs, is hosting a Car and Track event Saturday, Oct. 14. The event features a large car show and it is open to the public to participate.

The basis of the Autobahn Country Club began with the idea of combining the amenities of a country club with founder, Mark Basso's passion for motorsports. The main goal was to unite his passion with the amenities, camaraderie, and family friendly atmosphere of a country club.


The originators of the Autobahn Country Club wanted to design a location used for hosting track events that instilled a sense of community with its participants. Three priorities were created when planning the track, it must be: close to home, safe, and family friendly.

What resulted from this idea is a nearly four mile race track featuring two Alan Wilson designed road course layouts, along with a go kart track, skidpad, rallycross course, and offroad trail.

The Autobahn Country Club hosts member racing events, Autobahn Experience, Autobahn Performance Drive, Teen Defensive Driving Program, and Car and Track. Car and Track is an opportunity for public attendees to show off their car while experiencing the Autobahn.

Car and Track is Saturday, Oct. 14 from 10am - 2pm. Guests are able to bring in muscle cars, sports cars, exotics, street cars, stock, or modified vehicles to the event. Guests can watch Member Wings & Things Racing.

Must be 18 years of age or older to participate and driving his/her own vehicle.

The event is open to the public and admission is free. Spectators are welcome.

Premium Food is available at the on-site Café. Attire is casual.

The event is located at the Autobahn Country Club 3795 Centerpoint Way Joliet, IL 60436 and held between 10:00 am - 2:00 pm, Saturday Oct. 14. For more information go to or call (815) 722-2223.
