AN OVERVIEW OF THE DAY'S EVENTS

Check-In: Check-in time varies. Please view the schedule for details.

Ground School: Ground School introduces basic car control skills and knowledge. This classroom session ensures that every driver has the best preparation before driving the exercises.

Exercise Rotation

Note: Lunch options will be available for purchase on-site.

PROGRAM EXERCISES INCLUDE

Slalom: This will allow the participants to progressively become more comfortable with the FIAT 124 Abarth Spider and FIAT 500 Abarth vehicles as they work on vision skills, steering inputs, weight transfers and balance.

Shifting Exercise: To get the best performance out of the FIAT 124 Abarth Spider and FIAT 500 Abarth vehicles, we'll be practicing the 'Heel & Toe' shifting technique, the method of combining braking and downshifting when approaching a corner.

Auto-Cross: Auto-Cross is a miniature road course that is set up with cones. The goal is to get through the course as quickly as possible, without hitting any cones. Each cone hit is a penalty that adds 1 second to your time through the course. Objectives: Vision skills, car control skills, proper driving line.

On-Track Experience:

FIAT Rally Cross - First On-Track Activity: From the 'start box', driver #1, on the command to go, takes off and navigates around the track as quickly as possibly to the 'check point box'. LeMans style, drivers #1 and #2 switch places to then race back to the 'start box'. The quickest finished time will be the winner.

Lead-and-Follow: Experience driving on a proper race track. Drivers will follow an instructor, being shown the proper driving line, braking and acceleration points through the track. The driver's goal is to accurately replicate the instructor's car through the race course. Objectives: Proper line technique, vision skills, car control skills.

Hot Laps: The biggest thrill of the day! Drivers ride right-seat with a Bondurant Racing School instructor on some fast-paced laps around the race track.

FIAT Road Rally

If an excitement-filled drive through Central Arizona is what you're after, look no further than the FIAT Road Rally.

The FIAT Road Rally is a day-long team driving event kicking off at the Bondurant Racing School headquarters in Chandler, Arizona. Start your day by cruising through the hustle and bustle of nearby San-Tan Village. From there, we head to the iconic Red Mountain in Coconino National Forest, continuing on to the beautiful Saguaro Lake. Then head up north, carving up the mountain range to the Mongollon Rim Country of Payson. After eating lunch at one of Payson's popular eateries, the road rally will begin the descent back down the winding route of the Beeline Highway, before wrapping up the day at the Bondurant facilities.
