Dodge Charger and Challenger Hellcat, Demon, and Viper owners, good news: has new owners. Stig Investments, Inc., a group of entrepreneurs who are racing enthusiasts and automobile collectors, recently announced it has finalized its purchase of the performance racing school. The deal follows months of turmoil after the school filed for bankruptcy in October and even closed its doors for a time.
Under new ownership, the Chandler, Arizona-located racing school will continue its exclusive Dodge partnership as “The Official Performance Driving School of Dodge//SRT.”
A racing school partner since 2015, Dodge supplies a fleet of about nearly 100 vehicles to the track, including Dodge Challenger and Charger SRT Hellcat models, the 840-horsepower Challenger SRT Demon – the industry’s first and only street-legal production drag car and most powerful muscle car ever – as well as the Viper ACR.
“In the past 30 days, we’ve solidified key pieces of the Bondurant experience that will ensure the success and growth of the school,” said Bruce Belser, newly appointed CEO of Bondurant School of High Performance Driving. “From securing the FCA partnership to retaining our passionate team members, including renowned instructors Mike McGovern and Danny Bullock, and signing a new 10-year lease on the property, we plan to continue to deliver the ultimate guest experience and a best-in-class work environment for employees.”
Belser is one of the three investors in the Stig group and is a two-time Bondurant graduate. He is a successful entrepreneur having founded several businesses, and has served as a corporate pilot, Delta Airlines commercial pilot, fighter pilot and U.S. commander in the U.S. Air Force.
“Our continued Dodge//SRT partnership with the Bondurant School of High Performance Driving gives our passionate customers the opportunity to learn how to get the optimum performance from their new vehicles in a controlled environment,” said Mark Malmstead, head of Dodge//SRT marketing and communications. “Together, we have the perfect setting for a fully immersive driving experience like no other.”
