Ron Sutton’s 2016 Workshop Tour!

We were lucky enough to have Ron Sutton on this episode of the show to chat about his plans for 2016 as well as discuss what he learned and experienced with the OPTIMA Series in 2015.

We’ve heard from many of you about the “above and beyond” experience you’ve had in learning from Ron, and his storied career experience in every form of motorsports is really second to none. Long story short, his book tour last year was incredibly well received by our crowd and his plans for us in 2016 should amp things up to the next level!

Topics that we covered during this interview include:

–2016 Workshop Details (Topics, dates, times, locations, etc.)

–2016 Companion Book Details

–2016 OSUSC Events that Ron will attend

–Details on a few Customer Car Projects he has in the works.

–Ron’s Insight on the Ultimate Track Car that he would build….for himself (and why)!

Thanks for the interview, Ron…and see you at the track!


-Rob & Jimi
