It's Ch 11, not 7, so there's still hope. They get another chance at "would'a, could'a should'a"

Thankfully, it is business as usual at Bondurant Racing School. My son is taking the Grand Prix course this week. If you have ever considered it, I'd suggest signing up for their newsletter. They occasionally offer significant discounts via email.

it is a good course. i used to work as an instructor there. i learned a lot about racing and car control in general. tons of track time, which is invaluable...especially the free car, tires, gas, brakes... and when you wore out the car you just grabbed another1. the instructors, most of em are top notch drivers. bob has been married like 7-8 times, he used to own 2 helicopters. not really that smart. the indians have wanted him out of there for decades. but the school i would recommend to any1. my friend just went through the 3 day course a few months ago. he still cant stop saying how great it was. after you have a few credentials i would reccomend the advanced class. you get to drive with the best there in a telemetry car. take that class right before a nascar race is on a road course (watkins glen...sears point, etc). a bunch of em show up to brush up on road courses. fun times. i hope your son has a great experience and im sure he will.

edit: not that he (bob) isnt smart, just those few decisions werent very smart. ive made plenty of dumb ones myself. didnt mean to be misleading.

The Bob Bondurant School of High Performance Driving closed its doors Monday, slightly more than a month after the school filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

Just saw this: https://www.enginebuildermag.com/2019/04/bo...hool-purchased/

Apparently the Bob Bondurant School of High Performance Driving, Inc. is being purchased by Stig Investments, Inc., Sounds promising and one can't help but notice that link to Top Gear's anonymous race suit wearing test driver!
