Corvettes, especially the C4 and later gens, are among the best handling cars ever made. And the best way to experience their limits in a safe manner is on a track or autocross course. But for a novice things can be a bit intimidating.
My first high-performance driving event started during a downpour, and the only thing I remember about that session was being passed by everything except for the pit wall. But with the help of a great instructor, I was able to find the line and get a lot more comfortable in the car.
The best part about hitting the track is that you don’t have to be Johnny O’Connell to have a blast. Plus, learning car control in a potentially overwhelming situation will make you better able to handle emergencies on the street. Read on for my suggestions about how to embark on a great first high-performance driving experience.
