Satch Carlson is a raconteur, a humorist, and a veteran correspondent of what he calls the international Motorsports Journalism Bidness. He spent years as a columnist and feature writer at AutoWeek magazine and many other publications before taking the helm of Roundel Magazine, the official publication of the 70,000+ member BMW Car Club of America. He also contributes monthly columns to Hemmings Sports & Exotic Cars magazine. He is an active participant in driving events and tours and he’s at home on the track as much as the open road. He loves his Z4M roadster so much that he was once heard to say, “When I die, just put handles on the roadster – and dig a deep hole.”
“The important thing is this. To be able at any moment to sacrifice what we are for what we could become.” – Charles Bose
“I am not a missionary. I am not here to save you. I can only save myself from what is happening to you. There is room in my boat if you want to jump in.” – Jersey Kazińsky
An interesting behind the scenes story about how Satch became the editor of Roundel magazine.
After taking over the editor role at Roundel and the BMW Club Satch approached the board with the concept that what they had was much more than a club publication but instead a national magazine that needed to attract nations advertisers.
