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.
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.
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.
Autobahn Country Club offers three primary driving programs:
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!
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.
