    November 3, 2015 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - New Dodge/SRT buyers grab your racing shoes and helmets – Dodge is teaming up with the legendary Bob Bondurant School of High Performance Driving to create "The Official High Performance Driving School of Dodge/SRT."

    Starting Jan. 1, 2016, Dodge customers who purchase or lease a 2015 or 2016 Dodge/SRT can experience a high-performance driving class with professional instruction and time on the track where they can develop their racing and driving skills in a one-day performance-packed adventure.

    Dodge will provide the rides – nearly 100 SRT vehicles – including the 707-horsepower Dodge Charger and Challenger SRT Hellcats. In fact, Bondurant's entire fleet of cars is being converted to Dodge Chargers, Challengers and Vipers. Participants who qualify will have the rare opportunity to drive the Dodge Viper ACR, the fastest street-legal Viper track car ever.

    "We want drivers to develop an appreciation for the levels of performance our Dodge/SRT vehicles are capable of delivering," said Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Car Brands – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler, Fiat, FCA – North America. "Teaming up with Bob Bondurant, whose method of training has served more than a half-million drivers from around the world for nearly half a century, gives our Dodge/SRT owners the perfect track environment and professional guidance to hone their performance driving skills and gives us the chance to expose our lineup of SRT vehicles to a new group of performance car enthusiasts."

    When they arrive at the Bob Bondurant School of High Performance Driving in Chandler, Arizona, participants can combine advanced street driving skills with proven racing techniques and hours of track time for an unparalleled hands-on experience behind the wheel. Classes will include skid control, accident avoidance, line technique and a lead-and-follow session.

    "In 47 years of being the global expert on driving instruction, I've been waiting for the right circumstances to launch the Bondurant Racing School to honor my championship legacy. Finally, that day is here," said Bob Bondurant – Owner, Bob Bondurant School of High Performance Driving. "The Dodge/SRT muscle cars provide me the perfect platform needed to thoroughly teach road racing."

    SRT customers have one year from their purchase or lease date to take advantage of the Bob Bondurant School of High Performance Driving opportunity. Dodge will give eligible customers access to the school and vehicles for track driving. Participants can make a weekend trip out of the experience, but are responsible for their own hotel accommodations and travel.

    Bob Bondurant has been at the forefront of professional driving instruction since 1968. Using the Bondurant Method, more than 500,000 students – ranging from racers and celebrities, to teenagers, professionals and police officers – have learned from Bondurant's expertise.

    I was looking forward to Road America. Just one of those places I was looking forward to road tripping the Cat to next year. Now car stays parked and I'm shopping for airfare deals. Not a good deal.
    However I want some pro seat time and now I will be there in chandler when they announce the dates. So some positive there.

    Best of both is for Bondurant to travel to Midwest and east coast markets and not stay tied to chandler. I'm sure that was part of the negotiations with FCA.

    Starting Jan 1st 2016. Does that exclude everyone who purchased one previously? I know it says you have one year to redeem but the way it reads makes me think only after jan 1.

    This is very cool for me since I am near to Chandler. I hope that since I purchased my car in May of 2015 that I can still use my SRT track experience day for this school.

    Prefer the way it used to be, a different track every month across country. I chose the MSR track in Houston, that was fun!!!
