The Ron Fellows Performance Driving School at Spring Mountain Motor Resort is one of the best places for Corvette fans to learn how to properly drive their car around a race track.
The school runs a special program for C7 Corvette owners specifically, which allows the initial retail purchasers of new C7s to attend a two-day driving school at Spring Mountain that includes dynamic car control exercises and lessons on proper cornering techniques and other driver skill development.
Last year, the Ron Fellows Performance Driving School organized a special event after Chevrolet needed about 20 examples of the 2019 Corvette ZR1 delivered to Spring Mountain. The lucky 2019 Corvette ZR1 drivers met up in Detroit before setting off on a lengthy road trip to Spring Mountain in Pahrump, Nevada. This gave them the opportunity to break the brand-new ZR1s in before they were due to hit the race track later in the week.
Ron Fellows’ sons Sam and Patrick joined him on the road trip and put together a video documenting the 2019 Corvette ZR1 convoy. Here’s what Ron, a former Corvette Racing driver and NASCAR road course ringer, had to say about the trip:
“This is no joke! One year ago we completed a 3-day drive from Detroit, MI to the Ron Fellows Performance Driving School in Pahrump, NV (approximately 2,300 miles),” he said in a Facebook post. “My sons Sam & Patrick documented our trip and put together this cool video. Enjoy!”
