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.
