Default Corvette Racing School - Ron Fellows

I had an awesome time at Ron Fellows racing school this past November. Finally got a chance to edit the video footage and post it to my automotive YouTube channel Ozzstar. If you ever get an opportunity to attend the school you won't be disappointed. It's an amazing experience and I really got to learn how well the performance of my 2018 Grand Sport is. I will be posting 'Part 2' of my experience of the school with many more detials and how it all worked for me. Stay tuned!

Very video. Someday I hope to be able to attend the school. Looks like a lot of fun and a great opportunity to really get to know the C7s capabilities as well as hone your driving skills.

Just got back earlier this month, after my second visit to the COS at Spring Mountain. Such a blast, and fantastic instructors.

Hey Glen, nice job. I was in your class in November and totally agree with your assesment. My wife got to ride with the instructors in each track session and had just as much fun as me. I highly recommend taking advantage of this great opportunity.

Nice video. Anyone who buys a new Corvette and doesn’t take advantage of the GREAT bargain subsidized by GM to attend Ron Fellows is missing a terrific opportunity to learn about what their car can do and what they can do. It all translates to the street‘cause physics is physics, so even if you don’t plan to track your car it’s a valuable learning experience which will make you a better driver.

The full video Glen put together has lots of great information about the experience at Spring Mountain.
The one thing I would suggest is staying on site or in Parham the night before. Class starts early (check in is at 8 am) and the 75-90 minutes it takes to drive from Las Vegas is a lot of lost time because you want to be at breakfast at 7-7:15 am to meet all your fellow students and settle in.

Yes the accommodations we re nice. I mention in the video staying at the track one night is included with the Corvette owners school deal at Ron Fellows. Great time and learned a lot! It's a fun two days! -Glen
