Corvette ZR1 Driven Like It Was Meant To, On Track
By now you have seen many videos featuring the new Corvette ZR1, but not many feature the car getting put through its paces on a race track.
As driving and racing schools are dropping like flies and going bankrupt, the Ron Fellows Performance Driving School is one of the schools surviving. If you want to get a slice of the performance that can be given by a Corvette ZR1 going to a school which is known as “the Official High Performance School of Corvette” might be a good place to start. Started by a multi-time driving champion and longtime member of Corvette Racing Ron Fellows, the Ron Fellows Performance Driving School can help you get your Vette fix at the Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch facility.
In the video, YouTube channel High Tech Corvette was fortunate to get seat time in the new Corvette ZR1 at the Ron Fellows Performance Driving School. Stocked with walkarounds, flybys, and even in car footage from the ZR1’s Performance Data Recorder the video gives you an idea that the Corvette ZR1 is all business. According to the Performance Data Recorder data overlays, the over 600 horsepower LS9 powered ZR1 was driven in the “Track” drive mode setting and the Performance Traction Management set to “Sport 1”.
This writer was fortunate to visit the Bosch Proving Grounds earlier this year and got seat time in a Corvett Z06 with the engineers who developed the revolutionary traction management system which no doubt got some tweaks before getting fitted to the ZR1 beast.
If you want to get your own Corvette fix, cost of admission at the Ron Fellows Performance Driving School is covered with the purchase of a new Corvette ZR1 including a one night stay at an onsite condo along with breakfast and lunch meals. Alternatively, if you did not spring for a ZR1 at your local dealership Ron Fellows offers multiple programs to get you behind the wheel of a C7 Corvette.
