Disabled Individuals Get Rare Chance To Race Cars At Bondurant Racing School Through Barrow

Posted in:
Not many race tracks offer race car driving for individuals with disabilities. However, Barrow Neurological Institute at St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center and the famed Bob Bondurant School of High Performance Driving are pairing up to do just that at the Driving to Excel with Barrow and Bondurant event.

All participants experience hot laps up to 110 mph with professional Bondurant drivers. Participants who have a valid driver's license and at least six months driving experience will also receive specialized instruction and have the opportunity to drive a high-performance car or Go KART that has been adapted with special hand controls.

St. Joseph's and Barrow Neurological Institute believes that everyone has the right to live an active and productive lifestyle. This event was created to encourage people with disabilities by giving them access to adaptive recreation. Barrow is dedicated to helping provide post-injury patients with access to recreation.

The event is Friday, Dec. 20 from 3 to 7 p.m. Register for this event by calling (602) 406-6280. Cost of registration is $45 for children and $88 for adults and includes dinner.

Proceeds from the event benefit the Barrow Connection, a program at St. Joseph's Barrow that is committed to bridging the gap between hospital and community for those with neurological disabilities.
