Video: Chevrolet Turns Daddy Blogger Into a Corvette Racer for a Day

We’ve all dreamed about being a racecar driver sometime in our automotive careers; well, at least most of us have, but chances are only a fraction of us will ever get that opportunity. But as Chevrolet shows us, you don’t have to get your start in the racing world from a young age to experience the same kind of seat time that some of our favorite Chevy drivers do. In fact, all you have to do is head out to the Ron Fellows Performance Driving School at Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch and hop in one of their powerful Corvettes. Check out what the experience is like in the video above.

So Chevrolet sent blogger Greg Barbera out to Pahrump, Nevada to make one of his life-long dreams come true.

The Ron Fellows Performance Driving School at Spring Mountain offers a variety of true-life performance driving experiences for drivers of a variety of skill levels, including paddock drills, performance instruction and track time. Yes, even a blogger-by-day can go out and experience what it’s like to be a hot shoe in the racing field.

This experience, of course, is amplified by the cars the school has to offer – lots and lots of Corvettes. Whether it’s a Grand Sport, Z06 or a ZR1, chances are it’ll give you the ride of a lifetime. But you don’t have to take our word for it- just check out the racing opportunities you could have at the Ron Fellows Driving School in the video above.
