New Year, New High-Performance Adventure
December 21, 2015
A new year means a new adventure for Dodge/SRT drivers. Starting Jan. 1, 2016, Dodge customers who purchase or lease a 2015 or 2016 Dodge/SRT can experience a high-performance driving class with professional instruction. Dodge is teaming up with the legendary Bob Bondurant School of High Performance Driving for this one-day performance adventure.
“The Official High Performance Driving School of Dodge/SRT” will provide the rides. Nearly 100 SRT vehicles including the big dogs of the performance world – the 707-horsepower Dodge Charger and Challenger SRT Hellcats will be available. Bondurant’s entire fleet of cars is being converted to Dodge Chargers, Challengers and Vipers. Participants who qualify will have the rare opportunity to drive the Dodge Viper ACR, the fastest street-legal Viper track car ever.
“We want drivers to develop an appreciation for the levels of performance our Dodge/SRT vehicles are capable of delivering,” said Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Car Brands – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler, Fiat, FCA – North America. “Teaming up with Bob Bondurant, whose method of training has served more than a half-million drivers from around the world for nearly half a century, gives our Dodge/SRT owners the perfect track environment and professional guidance to hone their performance driving skills and gives us the chance to expose our lineup of SRT vehicles to a new group of performance car enthusiasts.”
When they arrive at the Bob Bondurant School of High Performance Driving in Chandler, Arizona, participants can combine advanced street driving skills with proven racing techniques and hours of track time for an unparalleled hands-on experience behind the wheel. Classes will include skid control, accident avoidance, line technique and a lead-and-follow session.
SRT customers have one year from their purchase or lease date to take advantage of the Bob Bondurant School of High Performance Driving opportunity. Dodge will give eligible customers access to the school and vehicles for track driving. Participants can make a weekend trip out of the experience, but are responsible for their own hotel accommodations and travel.
Bob Bondurant has been at the forefront of professional driving instruction since 1968. Using the Bondurant Method, more than 500,000 students – ranging from racers and celebrities, to teenagers, professionals and police officers – have learned from Bondurant’s expertise.
