The name-taken from the stories of Don Quixote...”with ideas in his head, he decides to take up his lance and sword to defend the helpless and destroy the wicked.” To some extent, this is the reasoning for the name: QUIXOTE RACING (sometimes aka Engines by Dietmar).
Dietmar Bauerle (pronounced 'Bowerly') has been building FV engines for over 40 years. A teacher in his former life, Dietmar started racing Vees in 1975 and took the Rookie of the Year award in the San Diego Region of SCCA. Based in Southern California, he basks in the sun or jets off to ski in the mountains of Canada when he doesn't have his nose buried in the garage. Begun in 1975, this one man, part-time operation has tried to provide the “average” racer with parts and services at a reasonable price. Quixote Racing became a full-time operation after retiring from 32 years in education and today still maintains that original idea of providing reasonable pricing and quality service.
Not as large as some FV suppliers, Quixote Racing maintains an inventory of all VW original and aftermarket parts and willingly refers customers to other suppliers for non VW items that are not typically in stock. Customer satisfaction is the number one concern.
