Father's Day gift idea for dads with a need for speed

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- If you're looking for a last minute gift idea for Father's Day, or just want to treat yourself to some fast paced fun, the Bondurant School at Phoenix Firebird Raceway could be just what you're looking for.

Bondurant features training and racing experiences in a variety of cars, ranging from high-speed karting to new Corvette Stingrays. 3TV's Scott Pasmore went out to Bondurant and got a chance to get behind the wheel of one of those Stingrays.

Courses can run for one day or several days, depending on the program. The classes offer some time in a classroom with 3:1 student to instructor ratios, but 80% of the program is spent behind the wheel, accoridng to Bondurant's website.

While some of Bondurant's programs can cost thousands of dollars, programming starts as low as $150.

The raceway is completely booked for Father's Day weekend, but gift certificates are available that can be used all year long.
