Hagerty Drivers Club forges sponsorship of Radford Racing School

Club members to reap benefits from connection with Arizona facility


Members of Hagerty Drivers Club will be eligible to receive exclusive performance driving and motorsports experiences, as well as private track time, under a sponsorship agreement with the Radford Racing School in Chandler, Arizona, the school announced Tuesday.

The Hagerty Drivers Club, part of the collector vehicle insurance and valuation company, is a premier membership for motoring enthusiasts of all stripes, who are offered a variety of “experiences, entertainment, branded content, social communities and exclusive benefits.” The club includes more than 1.8 million members, Hagerty says.

“As part of the sponsorship, Hagerty Drivers Club members will have access to the V.I.P. drivers lounge at the newly renovated and expanded Radford Racing School facility and receive special discounts on select driving and racing programs and private instruction,” Radford said in a news release. “The school will also collaborate with Hagerty on designing one-of-a-kind Radford Rides experiences for Hagerty Drivers Club members.

“In January, Hagerty will cohost an Annual Celebration of Motorsports event at Radford Racing School during Arizona Collector Car Auction Week.”

The Hagerty brand will be added throughout Radford’s track and campus, including on its fleet of Ligier JS F4s and more than 85 race-ready Dodge SRT vehicles. Radford Racing School, formerly the Bondurant School of High Performance Driving, is the official high-performance driving school of Dodge SRT, which has agreed to extend its multi-year sponsorship with Radford, also announced Tuesday.

“Hagerty is redefining the automotive lifestyle and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome them as an official sponsor of Radford Racing School,” said Mike Kessler, general manager of Radford. “This comes at a perfect time as we expand our programs to include more private instruction and distinctive touring experiences behind the wheel of personal collectible or performance vehicles.

“There’s no better way to connect passionate car owners than at our legendary track and have them train with our legendary driving instructors.”
