Biography

This IMSA stalwart started working for Peter Gregg in 1973 and soon manoeuvred his way into the driving seat. Early success was achieved in a Porsche 924 by winning the 1980 SCCA’s D Production Championship. He then raced a Porsche 924 Carrera GTR in Trans-Am from 1981 – winning back-to-back races during his second season in the series.

IMSA success

He also began racing in IMSA at the time and won the 1983 Mid-Ohio race when sharing Al Holbert’s March 83G-Chevrolet. Bundy ended that year with Group 44 Racing’s Jaguar XJR-5 and won at Pocono with team boss Bob Tullius. A regular with the team in 1984, he won at Miami and was part of Group 44 squad that returned Jaguar to Le Mans that June.

Works Ford driver

He moved to Ford for the 1985 IMSA GTP series and won twice a year later with Hendrick Motorsports’ Chevrolet Corvette. However, 1986 also included a horrifying three-car accident at Riverside’s Turn 1 in which both Lyn St James and Chip Robinson rolled at high speed – all three walked away unharmed.

His last season with Hendrick came in 1987 and Bundy raced a Lotus Sport Esprit X180R successfully in the Bridgestone Supercar series from 1991. He won the championship in his second season and continued to race in American sports car events into the new millennium.
