If you’re among those that have already purchased a 2014 Corvette Stingray or you’re planning to buy one this model year, then there’s good news from Chevrolet coming your way.
Today, the Detroit-based automaker has announced that 2014 Corvette owners that want to join the Ron Fellows Performance Driving School course for the new sportscar will benefit from a hefty discount.

Usually priced at $2,500, the two-day Corvette program will now cost only $1,000. The reduction is available for one year from the retail purchase of the vehicle and applies only to the original owner.

The company says that only one attendee per Stingray is eligible for the discount and adds that owners don’t have to bring their own Corvette at the track, as the school has its own fleet of V8-powered sportscars.

“We designed the Corvette Stingray to make its owners better drivers through technologies such as the Driver Mode Selector, Active Rev Match, electronic limited-slip differential and more,” explaines Tim Mahoney, chief marketing officer, global Chevrolet. “Through the Ron Fellows Performance Driving School, they’ll learn to make the most of its technologies and delve deeper into the Corvette’s capabilities, resulting in a more exciting and fulfilling driving experience.”

As suggested by its name, the Ron Fellows Performance Driving School is managed by former SCCA Trans-Am, IMSA and American Le Mans Series driver Ron Fellows.

The 54-year-old has raced Chevrolet Corvettes for nine years, winning the 24 Hours of Le Mans race on two occasions and scoring five additional podium finishes.

“It’s more than simply going fast and learning when to turn and apply the throttle,” said Fellows. “Mind speed and decision-making are key elements in the high-performance world, and our car control exercises and on-track training will help drivers improve their ability to process information quickly and accurately, resulting in a better coordination of eyes, hands and feet to improve their driving skill. It’s great fun – and drivers will definitely challenge their limits to find the limits of the new Stingray.”
