Bondurant School of High Performance Driving announced the addition of a new drag racing program.
The program, which kicks off July 27 and Aug. 17, is “the first of its kind to offer professional drag racing instruction to the public behind the wheel of the most powerful street legal cars in the world,” according to the Bondurant School. Additional courses will be announced in the coming weeks.
Courses are limited to 16 students per class, and cost is $1,999 per driver.
“We’re thrilled to offer this new drag racing program with our partners at Dodge//SRT,” said Bruce Belser, CEO of Bondurant School of High Performance Driving. “Drag racing is an adrenaline-filled motorsport that requires a certain set of skills. Our new course will help drivers of every skill level improve their technique and drop their one-eighth-mile time behind the wheel of powerful Dodge//SRT vehicles.”
Belser notes the course is the first new addition this year from the school and he expects classes to fill, given that a limited number of Demons were produced and many auto enthusiasts never may have the chance again to drive the car. Demon owners have the opportunity to experience Bondurant training; the new course is the first time it will be open to all drivers.
Classroom instruction for the full-day school will last approximately two hours and will address the fundamental rules of drag racing, including proper launch, staging technique, reaction time, signals and safety pre- and post-checks. On-track instruction will be under the direction and supervision of a professional Bondurant instructor. Each student will get in-classroom and on-track instruction followed by eight 1/8-mile full passes.
In addition to the 840-horsepower Challenger SRT Demon, the Bondurant//Dodge SRT drag racing program will include the 707-horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and Hellcat Widebody, and the 485-horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT 392. Students do not have to own Dodge//SRT vehicles to enroll in the course.
The new Dodge//SRT Bondurant Drag Racing Program will be held at Bondurant’s world-class facility and the Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park, an official NHRA drag strip, which sits on approximately 200 acres in Chandler, Arizona.
Enrollment for classes is now open. For more information call 1-800-842-7223 or visit www.Bondurant.com.
