Bob Bondurant continues to win on track, 47 years after his world-championship drive. In 1965, he led the Shelby American team to the International Manufacturers Championship, with seven sports-car victories in Europe and the United States. This month, he topped the vintage class at the Ford Cobra Shelby Reunion in Pomona, Calif., a celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Shelby Cobra. He drove his No. 72 1965 Ford GT40 Mark 1 Continuation to victory against a strong field of Shelby 289 and 427 Cobras.

Following the April 21 race, Bondurant joined racing greats Peter Brock, Allen Grant, Jerry Grant, Parnelli Jones and John Morton in a Shelby American discussion panel. They talked about how they first met Caroll Shelby and how they came from different backgrounds to work and win together.

“It was a fantastic weekend, spending time with old friends from the Shelby American team. It was great to race again,” Bondurant said. “The last time I raced at Pomona Raceway was 1963. I can’t wait to hook up with the old team again. Hopefully, it won’t be another 50 years!”

Bondurant tunes up for races at the Bob Bondurant School of High Performance Driving. He founded the school in 1968 and continues to oversee the school’s diverse international program.
