During the National Corvette Museum’s 20th Anniversary Celebration, a partnership was announced naming the Ron Fellows Performance Driving School at Spring Mountain as the “Official Performance Driving School of the National Corvette Museum” and “Official Partner of the NCM Motorsports Park.”


“We are pleased to come to a multi-year agreement with the National Corvette Museum and it’s new Motorsports Park,” said Ron Fellows, a charter member of Corvette Racing and 2011 Corvette Hall of Fame inductee. “All of us at Spring Mountain and the school are looking forward to this partnership to better serve the Corvette and performance driving community on a number of initiatives.” Ron Fellows Performance Driving School at Spring Mountain has been successfully operating high performance driving schools just outside of Las Vegas, NV since 2008, with nearly 30,000 graduates to date. As “The Official High Performance Driving School of Corvette” and the exclusive home of the C7 Corvette Owners School, partnering with the National Corvette Museum and Motorsports Park only benefits the Corvette community. The 186-acre NCM Motorsports Park features a 3.15 mile road course which is comprised of two circuits, “East” and “West”. The teams at Corvette Racing and Pratt and Miller advised the Museum on the layout, incorporating features from their most challenging track, the Le Mans circuit. The facility welcomes all makes and models of vehicles, including motorcycles and is located adjacent to I-65 in Bowling Green, Kentucky. “Joining forces with Ron Fellows and Spring Mountain furthers our mission to offer a safe and challenging environment where drivers of all ages, interests and skill levels can become more proficient behind the wheel,” said Mitch Wright, NCM Motorsports Park General Manager. “Spring Mountain has a long-standing track record of successful driving programs so we are excited to have them as our Official Partner at the track.” Look for an announcement in the coming weeks regarding programs and curriculum at the NCM Motorsports Park; featuring the Ron Fellows Performance Driving School, space will be limited![/Quote]

Was there any indication whether the C7 owners school will be offered at both locations?

That is an excellent question, and will try and get an answer this morning.

Also learned that Spring Mountain is developing different driving programs for Z06 owners. Those classes will also be tailored for drivers from "beginner" to skilled levels.

Talked with Spring Mountain's friendly Marketing Director, and for many reasons, the only place that Spring Mountain will present the $1,000 GM seventh-generation driving school will be in Pahrump, Nevada.

For those new to this, GM and Spring Mountain have teamed up to offer, for $1,000, what is usually a $2,500 two day classroom and driving course for original owners of C7's who attend the school within one year of their purchasing a Corvette. OR, one can take a three day course and get a $1,750 discounted price on typical school costs.

Adding to John's post for those new to the whole Ron Fellow's High Performance program for Stingray owners, we have two threads that will provide you lots of great information including excellent videos and first hand reports provided by some of our members:
http://www.stingrayforums.com/forum/stingray-owners-logbook/4677-ron-fellows-follow-up-post-school-impressions.html and http://www.stingrayforums.com/forum/stingray-corvette-news/3530-stingray-owners-driving-school.html.

Take it from one who has participated in the program, even if you never plan on tracking your Stingray, the techniques, skill sharpening and in-depth understanding that you will gain from the Ron Fellow's course is invaluable in terms of what it will contribute to your everyday enjoyment of your Stingray. And honestly it could very well save your life down the road in dealing with an unplanned incident while driving. :cool:
