Very sad news, an American icon, RIP Bob. I took a 4 day Bondurant competition license school many years ago and Bob dropped in almost every day.

We have a local small business here that sells steel on a small scale. The owner's last name is Bondurant, but he is of no relation to Bob. Anyway, a few years ago, he told me a story of when he wanted to explore some racing experience and went to Bob's track, and once Bob heard he had the same last name, Bob provided him with a free drive and lessons for the day around the track, for no other reason than his last name. That was the first time, and last time he ever got onto a race track.

What a loss. I met Bob and chatted briefly with him at the Amelia Island Course in 2013 on the anniversary of the Ford GT program. He talked about what a great time it was touring Europe in the 60's with the various race teams and how he's like to sponsor an event just discussing the racing there in period. A delightful man and a true contributor to the sport in so many ways.
