Radford Racing School and Hagerty team up to deliver premium driving experiences and instruction for enthusiasts

CHANDLER, Arizona – November 2, 2021 – Radford Racing School today announced that it has entered into a sponsorship agreement with Hagerty, a passionate automotive brand and leading specialty insurance provider for classic and enthusiast vehicles.

Among the many collaborations included in the sponsorship, Radford Racing School will provide exclusive performance driving and motorsport experiences as well as private track time for members of the Hagerty Drivers Club. With over 1.8 million members, Hagerty Drivers Club is the premier membership for car enthusiasts, offering experiences, entertainment, branded content, social communities and exclusive perks.

As part of the sponsorship, members of the Hagerty Drivers Club will have access to the VIP Drivers Lounge at the newly refurbished and expanded Radford Racing School facilities and receive special discounts on select driving and racing programs and private lessons. The school will also work with Hagerty to design one-of-a-kind Radford Rides experiences for members of the Hagerty Drivers Club. In January, Hagerty will co-host an annual motorsports celebration event at Radford Racing School during Arizona Collector Car Auction Week.

“Hagerty is redefining the motoring lifestyle and we couldn’t be happier to welcome them as an official sponsor of Radford Racing School,” said Radford Racing School Managing Director Mike Kessler. “This comes at a perfect time as we expand our programs to include more private instruction and distinctive touring experiences behind the wheel of collectible or performance personal vehicles. There’s no better way to connect owners of passionate cars only on our legendary track and have them practice with our legendary driving instructors.

As sponsor, the Hagerty brand will be incorporated across the Radford Racing School track and campus, including on its fleet of Ligier JS F4s and more than 85 race-ready Dodge SRT vehicles. Radford Racing School is Dodge SRT’s official high-performance driving school.

“The Radford Racing School team’s commitment to producing world-class driver training and motorsport experiences aligns perfectly with the desires of our Hagerty Drivers Club members and our aim to save driving,” said Justin Moreno, vice president of marketing for Hagerty. “Through this partnership, we are elevating what it means to be a Hagerty member by providing exclusive new benefits and opportunities to get behind the wheel. We really look forward to building on this collaboration and creating a variety of unique experiences for the entire Hagerty enthusiast community.
