Bondurant Racing

Had the opportunity to race a 505hp 2008 Z06 Corvette down in Phoenix, Arizona over the weekend at the Bondurant High Performance Driving School . . . The two-day course teaches you basic driving skills and puts you thru tests like the slalom, heel&toe downshifting, high speed braking, correcting a skid and of course, everyone's favorite ride, the van tour. Very simply, they load up two vans with people and head out for a high speed tour of the race track . . . check out the video . . 75mph+ around turns complete with audible skidding. This apparently was an un-modified chevy van I remind you.


Bonus: The Travel Channel was on-site shooting for a show called '21' ??? They filmed my dad during the skid class below.
