Michelin Corvette Challenge to Debut at Spring Mountain

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

04 stingray whiteThis month 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.

Composed 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.

05 stingray red"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 displayed a Corvette Stingray Z51-based concept race car featuring the new Z06-based parts at the SEMA Show, in Las Vegas.
