    I'm not seeing any days available before June. This is from the DriveSRT website:

    June 30, 2017 (Friday) SOLD OUT
    July 21, 2017 (Friday)

    August 4, 2017 (Friday)
    August 18, 2017 (Friday)
    September 1, 2017 (Friday)

    I was hoping for Feb, or more in March or some April dates, or more May. After that I'm guessing it'll be pretty hot out there.

    I'm not paying their ridiculous price for the multi-day packages. Not worth it in comparison to what we got previous to the Bondurant switch.

    Spoke with them last week and they highly recommended not doing the free 1 day event. He said that you would get "very little" time behind the wheel and instruction. Pretty disappointing as I wasn't looking to add another couple grand to the trip.

    I emailed and called to sign up for the Free 1-day SRT challenge. After talking to them I was convinced that I would learn more and have more fun with the Hellcat specific 2-day course I signed up and put my deposit down. Anyone else on this forum going to be there May 1st and 2nd?

    I'm looking in to this now. I'm leaning towards the 3 day course. I'd like to do the autocross in a HC without worrying about messing up my car.

    When I spoke to them it was the same thing buy extra days. I wanted to pass thru spend a day in chandler then go check out the big gap in the ground,see some friends while I am there before driving back. Not spend a week and 3k with them. just give me what I already paid for if I want more I will request it on my own not with a mandatory feeling of I must buy their track packages in order to use mine.

    The one plus to buying a package though is the $1k off you get when you do pick a 3/4 day package. So, if you'd consider a 3/4 day later, it would be beneficial cost wise to use you free day towards the overall cost

    There is a good suggestion.

    I mean yes, either way you do it, its a good chunk of change. But if you even think there is a decent change that you'd want to do the 3/4 day, it could be worth it to do it all at once. And i see why they push that suggestion, as they are a driving school, they probably have set days for the free 1 day SRT course that obviously would fill up quick, but when you do the 3/4 day, the dates are more flexible etc. Thats why i was glad when i called, and was able to use my free day towards the price of the 3/4 day, and it works out perfect for my drive across the country to go and do it.

    I wanted to do this with my C7, my GT350 and now my Hellcat. I doubt I'd get anything out of the 1 day. I'd want the 4 day. My only problem is my 19 year son wants to go and I'm not up for a 10k week :(

    Maybe both of you don't do the four day. Try for the two day. If you can afford it then go for it. This is a memory making opportunity to spend with your son. These opportunities only come up once in a while and you have to seize the moment. Think of how you and your son can talk about sharing the experience for years to come.

    Just got back from the 2 day course. I had a blast and learned a few things. The skid car is an eye opener and it should be a part of drivers ed. The autocross is the only timed event and it gets competitive. I came in 2nd and was beat by .143 of a second. The braking and handling exercises were fun. Everything you learn gets put to use on the track. To me, it was well worth upgrading.

    After recording a couple of the exercises, my GoPro camera battery dies and won't take a charge so unfortunately I don't have video of the track runs but I do have video of one of the braking exercises and the handling oval exercise.
