New Dodge Challenger SRT Demon owners are receiving an extra special treat that would leave any sports car fan drooling. In an effort to help Demon owners avoid stacking their powerful machines, Dodge has partnered with well-known high performance drag racing school the Bondurant Racing School to offer a free day-long drag-racing course.
Classroom instruction for the full-day school will last approximately two hours and will address the fundamental rules of drag racing, including proper launch, staging technique, reaction time, signals and safety pre- and post-checks. On-track instruction will be under the direction and supervision of a professional Bondurant instructor. Each student will get 22 single-lane runs, including a wet-box burnout, stage, 60-foot pass, half-pass and full-pass, in a variety of Challenger models.
In addition to the Challenger SRT Demon, the new drag racing course will also feature other Dodge high-performance vehicles, including the 707-horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and Hellcat Widebody, and the 485-horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT 392.
“With the 840-horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, 707-horsepower Charger and Challenger Hellcats and the 475-horsepower Durango SRT, the Dodge//SRT brands deliver more horsepower than any other brand in our segment,” said Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Cars, Dodge//SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA – North America.
“With great power comes responsibility, so we want our enthusiasts to respect the full capability of their machines. Our Dodge//SRT partnership with the highly acclaimed Bob Bondurant School of High Performance Driving, which comes with the purchase of an SRT, gives our customers the opportunity to get the most out of their new vehicles in a controlled environment, as well as gives anyone interested in our performance cars the chance to get behind the wheel of one at the track. Where else can you drive a Demon without having to buy one?”
