Wolf Racing Cars

Bellisima! Stunning Italian beauties have arrived at Spring Mountain

The Wolf GB08 We are thrilled to announce the execution of an exclusive distributor agreement for the US with Wolf Racing Cars and the Wolf GB08. Wolf Racing Cars is an Italian racing car manufacturer based in the Province of Brescia, Italy. The track debut of the GB08 took place in April 2010 at the Misano World Circuit during the opening round of the Italian Prototypes Championship. Ivan Bellarosa dominated the whole weekend securing the pole position and the first of a long string of victories.

Since its winner debut in 2010, the Wolf GB08 proved to be the best CN 2 car, winning the The Wolf GB08 - frontItalian championship in 2010, and triumphing in the Speed Euroseries in 2011 and 2012. The Wolf GB08 had major aerodynamic upgrades in 2013, and the new car has won competitions all over Europe and in the USA. With a Honda K20-A 2.000cc, 255 hp engine, the GB08 features lightning-fast acceleration, nimble cornering and excellent braking. This car drives like a dream on the track and CEO John Morris will be offering test rides to interested members during the November Club race weekend.

Beginning in January 2016 the Wolf GB08 will become a part of the Club race experience and will race along with the Radicals in a separate class. We have changed the name of our series to Spring Mountain Racing to incorporate the latest addition to our fleet.

For more information about the Wolf GB08 please contact Dave Struss, Manager, Spring Mountain Racing.


Michelin Corvette Challenge to Debut at Spring Mountain

Stingray-based spec-racing series launches with 15-race season

Today Spring Mountain Motor Resort & Country Club announced a new spec-racing series based around the award-winning 7th generation Corvette, the Corvette Stingray. The Michelin Corvette Challenge race series kicks off its inaugural season February 20, 2016 at Spring Mountain.

Corvette Challenge Race CarComposed of identically prepared, track-ready Corvette Stingray models, the series will feature 15 races over 8 weekends, utilizing multiple configurations of Spring Mountain's 6.1-mile race track. With a unique season-long payment plan, competitors will simply arrive and drive for each event and take delivery of their Corvette Stingray following the season finale on December 10, 2016. The Ron Fellows Performance Driving School, based at Spring Mountain, will serve as the technical race partner for the series.

"The Corvette Stingray is one of the most track-capable production cars available and our enhancements simply augment the production specs to help ensure durability for a dedicated racing life," said Ron Fellows. "With the cars mechanically on equal footing, driver skill will be the determining factor in the rankings, which should make it a very exciting series."

The Ron Fellows Performance Driving School collaborated with Chevrolet and Michelin to develop the series, as well as the package of performance and safety equipment required for each participating race car. Many of the performance components are derived from a new portfolio of Corvette Z06-based parts from Chevrolet. They're designed to enhance the handling, braking, cooling and downforce performance of the Stingray. Chevrolet will display a Corvette Stingray Z51-based concept race car featuring the new Z06-based parts at the SEMA Show, in Las Vegas.

Below is the schedule for the 2016 series, with each race weekend featuring a pair of 30-minute races on the challenging Spring Mountain circuit:

  • February 20/21
  • March 19/20
  • April 16/17
  • May 21/22
  • Sept 17/18
  • October 15/16
  • November 19/20
  • December 10 (followed by awards banquet)

More information on the racing series is available at: http://michelincorvettechallenge.com.

The specially-equipped Corvette Stingray will be on display outside the Clubhouse on Friday, November 20 at the Members' dinner and movie-screening party.
