GM Gives Free Driver Training to New Corvette Owners!

All models to get special driver program! Since its introduction as a 2009 model, Chevrolet has offered customers who purchase a new Corvette ZR1 a two day, tuition paid, ZR1 Driving Class through either Bob Bondurant School of High Performance Driving (near Phoenix, AZ) or Ron Fellows Performance Driving School at Spring Mountain (outside of Las Vegas, NV) – the official Driving Schools of Chevrolet.

For Corvette customers who take delivery of any new 2010 or 2011 Corvette model (coupe, convertible, Grand Sport or Z06) from January 4, 2011 through February 28, 2011, Chevrolet will offer these customers an opportunity to attend the two day ZR1 Driving Class at one of the two official Chevrolet Driving Schools of their choice. Eligible customers who elect to take advantage of this opportunity within one year of their delivery date will have their tuition paid for by Chevrolet to attend the ZR1 Driving School class. All eligible customers will be responsible for their accommodations (lodging, meals, etc.) and travel to and from the school.

This special limited time offer is in addition to other current Corvette incentive programs. The offer cannot be exchanged for a cash value or additional vehicle discount.

What a cool way to reward all Corvette owners! We can't think of a better way to spend a vacation! The thought of tearing up the track in a Corvette other than yours can bring any Corvette fan great joy!
