Bob Bondurant School ceases operations
By RACER.com staff
The Bob Bondurant School of High Performance Driving has closed after more than 50 years of offering programs for drivers of all experience levels.
The school – founded by Bob Bondurant in California before moving to Arizona in the 1980s — filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy Oct. 2 in Chandler, Arizona. The Bondurant track was the largest purpose-built driver training facility in the world, used for performance enthusiasts and to train student drivers and police personnel. It was also the official high performance driving school for Dodge/SRT.
At the heart of the facility is a 3-mile, 26 turn, multi-configuration track that was designed by Bob Bondurant. The school maintained over 200 race-prepared vehicles, sedans, SUVs and open wheel cars.
