Default 12 ZR1 customers and 9,060 HP on the Spring Mountain Race Track~Mike [email protected]*

~A couple of months ago I sent out an email to all my ZR1 customers to see if there was some interest to enjoy the Ron Fellows Spring Mountain Race Track together
and complete the ZR1 Corvette owners school together...the Furman ZR1 class sold out in 6 HOURS! Now when you buy a ZR1 one of the perks is the ZR1 2 day school is free...
but you still have to make time in your schedule and travel out to Pahrump, Nevada. Simply stated we all had a BLAST! 12 ZR1's for two days and 9,060 Horsepower combined.
The facility at Spring Mountain is top notch in every manner. The first night I gave a private Dinner party in The Clubhouse and handed out 12 $100 gift certificate's to all the attendee's
courtesy of Adam's Polishes. Adam and his best college friend came to my class in October and I believe he still has a perma grin! So a BIG Thank you to Adam of Adam's Polishes
and for all that you do for the Corvette enthusiasts of the world. After Dinner we sat around the Fire pit and enjoyed the Nevada evening. I do this dinner the night before the two day class
every customer class that I do as it gets the group relaxed with all the individual classmates. I don't want anyone uncomfortable even for a moment.
The two days on the track driving the 2019 ZR1 went off without a hitch. The Pro instructors were very patient as many folks have different Corvette driving experience. Fun for all that is for sure.
A huge round of applause to all the instructors and of course Rick Malone, the head instructor. Last but not least I couldn't do these classes without Melinda and Donna being so efficient and helpful
with all my Corvette customers. I send approx 250-300 corvette customers per year to Spring Mountain and they do GREAT job as do all the other ladies in the Sales Office. I will be back out to Spring Mountain
with 3 classes of Corvette customers July 19th-23rd, September and then sometime in early October with another group of Corvette customers.

~Enjoy some of the pics from this past week below...

Thank you Todd Crutcher at Spring Mountain for allowing me to host my customers at the Ron Fellows Race Track.

Thanks for sharing the many pictures, Mike. Sure looks like it was a great time for all. You're making it easy for someone to want to purchase a ZR1 from you. The fact that Spring Mountain is first class all the way is definitely a bonus. It makes for an unforgettable experience.

Great pics, I love the sidewalk/track meme.
