You’ve likely heard of the Bob Bondurant School of High Performance Driving, and chances are that you’d have made it nowhere near this site without having heard something about Callaway Cars. According to Corvette Blogger, it would seem that the two are destined for a partnership, teaming up to provide limited edition products and special high performance driving experiences.
It might not surprise you to hear that Bob Bondurant and Reeves Callaway are no strangers to each other, but the particulars of their respective histories are quite interesting. Bondurant was a preeminent racing driver from the 1950s through the 1960s, on motorcycle, in sportscars, and even in Formula One. When Corvettes began racing regularly, his name became nearly synonymous with the car in motorsport, winning 30 of 32 races in a Corvette from 1960 through 1963.
But it would only be another few years before Bondurant and Callaway initially crossed paths; after starting the Bondurant School of High Performance Driving in 1968, Reeves Callaway became one of his first driving instructors in the 1970s. Callaway would later leave, of course, to carve out his own legacy as one of the world’s most notable tuners.
Details of what may come out of a Bondurant-Callaway partnership remain scarce, but whether it be one or more tuning packages, a line of performance components, a specialty performance driving program, or some combination of these things, it will have two of the most respected names in Corvette history alongside it.
