Thanks for posting, I just saw the press release from FCA was released yesterday. FIAT will have more info and specially wrapped Abarths at the Woodward Dream Cruise in Detroit and the Monterrey CA events this month.

When I did my Abarth Experience back in March the guys that ran that said to expect as much. TAE was piggy backed on the SRT track days so it wasn't a huge cost to them. When Dodge stopped the SRT experience in favor of Bondurant, Fiat was going to keep going. Well they realized real quick how much it cost without the Dodge division there to share the load and that's why the program went away. They heard rumors back then that Fiat would be doing Bondurant eventually as well. Guess they were right. Gonna be a bit more of a PITA to get there than a more local track. However I've heard nothing but good things coming from people that have done the Bondurant course.
