Bondurant Racing School
Bob began teaching at Carroll Shelby's
driving school in Riverside, California. Having finally
regained his physical abilities, Bob opened his school
in 1968 with three Datsuns, a Lola T70 Can-Am car
and a Formula Vee.
On February 14, 1968, the doors opened at Orange County
International Raceway, near Los Angeles, with three
students. The next week there were two students, Paul
Newman and Robert Wagner, training for the film, "Winning".
Bob was technical advisor, camera car driver, and
actor-instructor for the film.
Two years later the school moved to nearby Ontario
Motor Speedway, and in 1973 to Sears Point International
Raceway near Sonoma, California. In 1983, Ford Motor
Company offered to provide vehicles and other support
to the school.
Seven years later, on March 2, 1990, Bob's dream of
building a purpose-built driver training facility
became a reality in Phoenix, Arizona. The school maintains
over 200 race-prepared vehicles, sedans, and open
wheel cars. The school is the largest facility of
its kind in North America.
Today, Bob continues to teach daily, time permitting,
and race in select vintage racing events around the
country. Whether racing, flying his helicopter or
speeding around the course in a Bondurant race prepared
car or SuperKart, Bob is still considered the man
to beat and the master of maximum car control.
