STEVE BIS


Steve Bis spent his formative years working in a bicycle shop and racing downhill and trials bikes. As soon as he got his driver’s license, Steve would make the transition from bikes to cars, focusing his efforts in learning everything there was to know about the mechanics of foreign cars. His auto racing experience also began at a young age, at sixteen Steve was already working with the Jaguar vintage racing team as a race technician, and he would later go on to successfully race rally cross, motocross and rally. Steve’s patience and ability to absorb as much technical information as he could get his hands on would not be wasted, and by the time he was eighteen, Steve began his career as an Audi specialist, and he has continued his mastery for the past nine years. Currently, Steve has been racing his dirt bike in the Berthoud Enduro Championship and is well on his way to a great season.
