Welcome to the Optima Search For the Ultimate Street Car Series Podcast! This show is produced twice–per-month show and will be a great way to keep people informed on everything going on, from rules discussions, to event coverage, and to feature interviews with competitors and people of interest!

The show is hosted by myself (Rob Kibbe) and Race Director Jimi Day. Our goal is to bring you all of the latest and greatest information possible…plus have plenty of fun along with way. Feel free to e-mail us with feedback and questions, and we’ll work as many of them can into the show!

Feature Interview – Ron Sutton


Ron Sutton

We were lucky enough to have Ron Sutton on this episode of the show. Ron has been a well known name of expertise in the racing world for years, as a race team owner, a car builder, a parts supplier, and as a fairly in-demand consultant. This year he decided to change his business model quite a bit and has jumped into the Pro-Touring Ultimate Street Car world world with both feet!

As you’ll learn in this interview, he’s truly seen and done it all in the world of racing. His contribution to the OPTIMA Series is through his unique consulting packages to help others build well balanced (and safe) competition cars, with the ability to perform nearly any service from safety calcs, to suspension design, to part/component recommendations (which he can also supply).

Plan to see him at several events in the series this year. He’ll be the guy with the dachshunds (really)! Thanks for the great interview, Ron, and thank you for your support of our show!
