Usually after buying a powerful car like the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 it’s a very good idea to learn how to drive it before pushing the car to its limits. In fact, you might as well learn how to appropriately drive this machine before you even think about going out and purchasing yourself one. And it just so happens that we know just where you need to go if this is something that you would be interested in doing. How about you take a few lessons from the Ron Fellows Performance Driving School?
In this video, you will see what Ron Fellows can teach you over at Spring Mountain, a 2.2 mile race track about 45 minutes from Las Vegas, Nevada. There, Ron Fellows has a program especially for drivers of theCorvette ZR1. The program consists of a 2-Day ZR1 Performance Driving School with an option for a third day. The program has a 3 to 1 student to instructor ratio and allows students to drive Corvette ZR1s and other hand-selected, Spring Mountain preferred performance vehicles as necessary.
The 2011 Chevrolet ZR1 is powered by a LS9 supercharged 6.2 liter V-8 engine rated at 638 HP and 604 lb.-ft. of torque. The engine is backed by an upgraded, stronger six-speed manual transmission and a twin-disc clutch that provide exceptional clamping power. With a curb weight of 3,333 pounds, the Corvette ZR1 makes the 0 to 60 mph sprint in 3.4 seconds and can hit a top speed of 205 mph.
It would be unfortunate to waste this kind of power and speed on someone who can’t control it and use it to the best of their ability.
