Autobahn Country Club

Continental Garage at Autobahn Country Club
Autobahn Country Club in Joliet, IL is more than just the home of over five miles of race track — it’s also a gathering place for driving enthusiasts throughout Chicagoland. This private race club is a one-of-a-kind place where members can experience the rush of pushing their vehicles to their limits. It also happens to be Continental AutoSports Ferrari’s home track, and place where we maintain a racing garage.


Track Details

Joliet’s Autobahn Country Club is home to over five miles of track designed for high-speed performance-focused driving. John and Joel Weinberger are founding members of the Autobahn Country Club in 2004. The Continental building is prominently seen on the North Track.

  • Full Circuit: 3.6 miles, 40 feet wide, with a 1,850-foot straight.
  • North Circuit: 1.46 miles, 40 feet wide, 9 turns, with a 1,237-foot straight.
  • South Circuit: 2.1 miles, 40 feet wide, 15 turns, with a 1,850-foot straight.

Members of the Autobahn can enjoy an atmosphere filled with auto enthusiasts, are entitled to unlimited track time, and are also eligible to participate in a Member Racing Series. Additionally, members have access to one-on-one coaching by professional race instructors to sharpen their skills on the track.


Driving Options

Autobahn Country Club offers three primary driving programs:

  • Individual: These programs are designed to hone your driving skills in a variety of situations, and you can drive your own car for the purposes of the classes. Available courses start with the basics of high-speed driving and go on to cover advanced racing techniques.
  • Defensive: The Defensive Driving classes are also focused on individuals, and cover topics such as Teen Driver Safety Training, as well as instruction for fleet drivers and law enforcement.
  • Group: Group classes are perhaps the most exciting option at the country club. The Autobahn Autocross is conducted with 20 or more participants, and sees drivers competing in a racing environment filled with slaloms, hairpin turns, and straightaways. There’s also group training for fleet driving and law enforcement available.

Ferrari Client Track Days

Each Spring and Fall, Continental AutoSports Ferrari offers two track days to allow our customers to experience their Ferraris the way they’re meant to be experienced: on the track. In addition to spending time on the track in some of the most finely tuned vehicles on the planet, Ferrari Client Track Days are a glorious opportunity to connect with fellow enthusiasts and to learn about the brand. We also provide professional race instructors who are available to ride with all participants and help them refine their skills.

These events are a highlight of our year, and we hope you’ll be able to make it!


The Continental AutoSports Ferrari Connection

Autobahn Country Club is our home track, which is why Continental AutoSports Ferrari maintains a garage on the premises. Dealer Principal Joel Weinberger is a regular on this track, and, as a 30-year racing veteran (including the Ferrari Challenge), has much to offer clients of Continental AutoSports Ferrari and fellow enthusiasts at Autobahn Country Club.
