    Looking forward to one of my favorite towns and doing 2 days in a Hellcat. Looks like a great program.

    That's great let us know how it goes. Compare it to the track experience if you've done it already

    You are cooked. The Hellcat is a blast on the road course, especially if done correctly. I have the road race bug worse than the golf bug hit years ago. Problem is, it is even MORE expensive!

    Have fun and just start saving the money now.

    I went with my daughter to the Teenage Advanced program. It was invaluable for her driving skills and was very well run.

    Yea Im really looking forward to it. I have this beautiful Hellcat in my garage but at the end of the day there is no where to really open it up like you can on a track! I want to learn how to drive it well even just for daily driving. I will give a full report when the class is completed. I am glad I used the $1,000 credit and upgraded to the actual 2 day high performance program. The free one you get from SRT sounded a bit lame to be honest. More of a group thing with very little track time.

    So I went to the SRT web page to get their email address and then sent them my VIN# and said I wanted to do the program. They then sent me back an email saying my VIN was validated and someone from Bondurant would contact me which they did in about 48 hrs. The email said call to set up the SRT day. When I called I found out that I had the option to do a 2 or 3 day class and if I wanted to do that they would apply $1,000 credit from SRT towards the purchase of the 2 or 3 day class. I chose the 2 day in a Hellcat for $2,795. They applied my SRT credit so I had to pay the $1,795 difference. I also found out the SRT day is a large group format with not much track time. Kind of a sampler thing. The regular Bondurant 2 and 3 day programs are more intense and much smaller groups with much more track time and personal instruction. Since these are the regular Bondurant courses they are offered every week of every month. The SRT only day is only offered on specific days. Right now they are scheduling 4/30,5/1,6/11,7/30,8/27 for the SRT only days. None of those worked for me because I won't go to Phoenix from May through September. I used to live there and its way too hot in the summer.

    Did you have to pay from your pocket? I thought this course was free. I received an email for my 2015 HC that stated they would be doing this for free. Now this is confusing.

    Sorry its not meant to be confusing. Let me try to break it down better. You have 2 choices:

    1. Do the one day SRT "Track Experience" for free. It is included with your car. You pay nothing extra. Its free. It is only available on specific dates. I listed those dates in this thread. They will no doubt add more but as of 2/12/2016 those are the only SRT dates.

    2. Upgrade to a more technical and robust Bondurant 2 or 3 day High Performance Driving program. Your free SRT thing is worth $1,000 so they will apply that $1,000 to your upgrade package whatever the cost. Then you pay the difference. And since these are actual Bondurant school packages, they are available all the time. Every week of every month. Lots of scheduling options. I hope that helps.

    So by upgrading you were able to schedule at any time that course was offered not just limited to SRT dates ? Correct.
