Congratulations on your new Corvette ZR1, and welcome to a legendary pairing of America’s Supercar and the very driver who helped make it so – Ron Fellows. In the world of auto racing, Ron Fellows’ name is synonymous with Corvette. He’s been a leading part of Corvette Racing since the program began. Ron had the opportunity to participate in the on-track development of the Corvette ZR1, and provided input on fine-tuning its driving dynamics. Now he has developed a very special training program at Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch to help you master the ZR1’s awesome performance, and to enhance your enjoyment of this amazing work of automotive art and engineering. Spring Mountain’s exhilarating track, a 2.2-mile road course near fabulous Las Vegas, was purpose-built for training Corvette drivers.

The Car is your Classroom. At the Ron Fellows Performance Driving School, we believe there is no substitute for feeling how your input affects your vehicle’s behavior. That’s why for new ZR1 owners, our two new ZR1s are your classroom. And, for a vehicle that accomplishes zero-to-100 mph-to-zero in less than 11 seconds, you’ll quickly appreciate the power and responsiveness of the Corvette ZR1. Two way radios in every car give you confidence on our adrenaline-charged road course, and translate to more seat time to test your own limits and the limits of this world-class supercar. The radios provide instant feedback from your instructor, and make for a safer learning environment. Even when the instructor is not in the car, they’re still with you, providing real time assessment and guidance on every corner, every straight, and every lap.
Program Day 1
Braking, Heel & Toe, Skid-car, Lead-Follow Sessions. Begin your day with a ZR1 braking exercise to demonstrate the difference between conventional braking and ABS braking systems though a series of exercises leading up to accident avoidance. You’ll find more stopping power than you’ll ever need with
the monster Brembo calipers installed in the ZR1. Next you will move on to proper shifting techniques, including Heel & Toe downshifting. Then it’s on to the Skid-car and Oval exercises on the paddock, which are designed to help you with visual scanning. Using your eyes properly is essential to successful car control. This is the cornerstone of our program philosophy. You will then jump back onto the track for some lead follow sessions with our expert instructors. Cornering instruction follows, and then you’ll be back on the track for some additional lapping sessions to close out the day.
Program Day 2
Shifting, Pendulum Exercises, Lapping. You will start off Day 2 of the ZR1 program with some shifting practice, and then it is onto the paddock area for our Pendulum exercise. The Pendulum exercise teaches you how to maintain constant control in any situation. A tech session to review the ZR1 vs. the Z06 will be held in the classroom, and you’re off to the track again for some heart-pounding lapping exercises. The instructors will give some demonstration laps where you will ride along with them in the ZR1. Following this you will continue your sessions on the track learning to push yourself and your vehicle to the limit. At the end of the day hot laps can be given with our skilled instructors driving the ZR1/Z06 at limits you never thought were possible.
Program Day 3 (optional)
Maximum Track Time with Open Lapping Sessions. Practice makes perfect! Because we believe you will benefit with maximum track time, Day 3 of your ZR1 program is predominately spent on the 2.2-mile purpose-built Spring Mountain road course. You’ll warm up with some shifting sessions, some lead-follow sessions, and then on to open lapping for the rest of the day. This is the ideal conclusion to a power-packed curriculum, designed to develop the driving skill and finesse worthy of the incredible supercharged ZR1.
