BUCKET LIST ITEM!!!!!!

Hey Folks,
Just got back from doing the Bondurant High Performace class in a 2012 RS/SS Camaro. I have wanted to REALLY take the car to it's limits. Bob's though, not mine! GREAT INSTRUCTOR'S... I thought I was fast before. They truely teach you how to load the corner of the car that's needed. It's no B.S. on the 2nd day your instructor lets you run as fast as you want. The big road course is 1.9 miles so you can really get after it.
Gotta put it on Your Bucket list!

Cool !!

Thanks for sharing. I need to add that to the list. I would love to hit several of the major tracks across the US just to say I raced on them. Getting some quality instruction before I hit the road would be a wise choice.

Congrat cpo keep on tracking! I'm soo looking forward to driving schools in my ZL1 (where is my car??) As I've mentioned before I live close to Watkins Glen and they have driving/race schools frequently thru the year. I plan to attend as many as affordable to hopefully be able to drive the ZL1 to it's limits safely. Oh thanks for your service from a former Marine.

Yep, I'm with Envy. It's been on my top 5 for years. Still hoping my kids get rich at some point and feel sorry for their dad.

2010 Stock IBM 2SS/RS

I found $80 in my jeans pocket. The kid in me said "buy nerf guns and candy!" But then the adult in me said "buy vodka, nerf guns and candy!"

Actually I was talking with the Wife this morning..

I said, what about taking your 370Z Sport out to the track , for an HPDE Class with an Instructor..She said , "you are not taking my car out there"..I said not me ...YOU..

She lit up and said how much?.

Although it is not the Driving Class, we are going to Go out to Infineon Raceway this year and Drive both the 370Z and the Z/28...

Oh I may not get to drive the 370Z, but once we are there, i may get her to let me..

Wish me Luck..I am already in Bucket List mode...
