Ron Fellows Performance Driving School07/13/18
Mid America Motorworks continues a partnership with Ron Fellows Performance Driving School, the Official High Performance Driving School of Corvette. We are pleased to once again name Ron Fellows Performance Driving School the Official Driving School of Corvette Funfest! With around 100 Corvettes in its stable it only makes sense that Ron Fellows Performance Driving School would once again join thousands of Corvette owners as we celebrate Corvette Evolution!
A team from the driving school will be at Corvette Funfest to discuss the different Ron Fellows Programs available at the Spring Mountain Motor Resort & Country Club in Nevada. Each program is customized from one day to several, to suit the needs of Corvette owners at every driving level, from aspiring racers seeking first-time instruction to the most advanced racer seeking to improve lap times.
The Driving School's curriculum was designed by none other than Corvette racing legend, Ron Fellows, one of North America's most versatile and successful road racing drivers, winning in series from NASCAR, the American Le Mans Series, to the 24 Hours of Le Mans. He is also an inductee into the Hall of Fame at the National Corvette Museum. His acclaimed Driving Programs integrate dynamic car exercises and maneuvers to coordinate eyes, hands and feet, providing a baseline for lapping our country's highways and the world-class racetrack with speed, finesse and confidence.
Spring Mountain Motor Resort & Country Club has also donated a 2-day driving experience with accommodations, which will be used in conjunction with a trip to Las Vegas being donated by Mid America Motorworks and given away during the charity event on Friday evening. The winner and a guest will spend two days at Spring Mountain Motor Resort and Country Club, attending the Ron Fellows Performance Driving School. After two action packed days, the winner and guest will join the Yager family in Las Vegas at a luxury hotel, with dinner and a show – oh, and did we mention the winner will also get to check out SEMA?
