Formula 1. Le Mans. NASCAR. Bob Bondurant has done it all, and doesn't appear to be slowing down even at the ripe age of 79.

The owner of the Bondurant School of High Performance Driving recently came to Texas to see what the Circuit of the Americas track is made of. The track, located southeast of Austin, remains under construction so it can host the U.S. Grand Prix on Nov. 16, which explains all of the bulldozers Bondurant blows past in this short video from the Austin American-Statesman.

"The elevation changes right now? Wow," Bondurant says. "This is going to be so cool."


Yeah, so we can expect the Bonudrant school will be offered at COTA, right? That's what we assume this means.

Check out the video here.

(Full disclosure: I should note that when I'm not Jalopnik-ing for you weekend folks, I am a reporter at the Statesman. I did not work on this story or this video. I wish I had been there, though, because it was probably awesome.)
