I've been out there several times, and know the head instructor personally. He races in the Continental Tire Series in the GT class. With that being said, I've never taking the course, but it's definitely on the list of things to do.

For those of you that don't know, if you purchase a ZR1, you get a week's class for free to learn how to drive your car. It's a program that Bondurant has worked out with Chevrolet.....

I'm not sure how much of a "helluva deal" that really is.... I mean, you are paying Six Figures for car. For that kind of money, I would hope there would be some sort of incentive....... Ha Ha Ha!!

Hey Firecross, yeah, I'm not sure of any incentives like that for the ZL1, just the ZR1. And it's only for the Bondurant road course, which is at Firehawk raceway, right outside of Phoenix. When you go there, they have about a dozen or so ZR1's just sitting outside. Last time I was there, inquiring minds were wanting to know how you get to drive those cars, and that's when I learned it's a program that Chevrolet started to show owners how to drive that specific Corvette. Pretty awesome if you ask me....

She lit up and said how much?.

Although it is not the Driving Class, we are going to Go out to Infineon Raceway this year and Drive both the 370Z and the Z/28...

Oh I may not get to drive the 370Z, but once we are there, i may get her to let me..

Wish me Luck..I am already in Bucket List mode...
Wishing you luck brother

Hmmm bucket. You expect the Z to be a track car but it has shortcomings? How much in mods did you do the the Camaro? I think you are expecting too much from the Z it ain't a ZL1.
