Chandler, AZ (PRWEB) January 11, 2013
The Bob Bondurant School of High Performance Driving and SNT Motorsports Development have joined forces to add stock car driving, coaching, and track events to the Bondurant School's extensive curriculum. Students and corporate groups will now have the opportunity to hone their skills in SNT's 650-horsepower stock cars, in addition to the Bondurant School's fleet of Chevrolet Corvette and Camaro sports cars, Chevrolet Tahoe law-enforcement vehicles, open-wheel Formula Mazda cars and karts.
Guests will have the opportunity to experience a right-seat ride with a professional driver on the challenging 15-turn multi-configuration Phoenix track designed by the school's founder, Bob Bondurant. Drivers who want to take their stock car experience to the next level can get behind the wheel in introductory and intermediate courses. Advanced courses for professional racers are offered as well.
Chris Cook, a former Bondurant instructor who is currently racing in both the NASCAR Sprint Cup and Nationwide Series will manage operations for the new SNT program at the Bondurant School.
"Chris is a fantastic Bondurant School instructor who has done a lot of amazing things. He has now made a full circle back to the school, bringing the SNT Motorsports stock car program," Bondurant said. "We train 90 per cent of NASCAR drivers here at the school, so SNT is a very exciting addition for us."
"We are very excited about the expansion of our operations to the Phoenix metro area and to be working with an organization the caliber of the Bondurant School," SNT owner/driver Steve Tarpley said. "The passion and skill that Bob and his team bring to the track every day sets the bar very high – there is a reason they are number one in this business. Our stock car/road course focus dovetails nicely with the tremendous product offering they have in place."
Bondurant Enterprises provides a full range of driving training, from grooming future race stars to helping families improve their driving skills to hosting unique corporate events. Bob Bondurant, an internationally recognized leader in advanced driving training, opened the Bob Bondurant School of High Performance Driving in 1968. The largest purpose-built driving school in the world, it features a 15-turn, 1.6-mile road course, an eight-acre asphalt pad for advanced training and more than 200 race-prepared vehicles, sedans and open-wheel cars.
