I Got To Go Around The Track At Over 100 MPH In A Hellcat [VIDEO]
When I travel for my podcast Skidmarks Show I often get to do some really cool stuff that I normally wouldn't be able to otherwise. Like this time when I went around a race track at over 100 MPH in a Dodge Hellcat.
I was in Scottsdale, Arizona for the annual Barrett-Jackson auction a couple weeks ago. While we were there w had the opportunity to go to the Bob Bondurant Racing School. This school has taught both race-car drivers, and civilians, how to drive like a champion for decades. And they use a fleet of Dodge Challengers and Chargers with the infamous 707 hp Hellcat engine. These are professional race cars that anybody can buy now.
Since we didn't have enough time to do the whole school we had one of their professional drivers doing the dangerous part. Jason Bondurant invited us to go back in a few months to learn how to drive like this ourselves, but for now here's a video of how crazy it is to go around a track that fast, and how hard it is to hold a camera phone and get a good shot while doing over 100 MPH at the same time.
