Corvette News - Stingray Dealer Training Program

Spring Mountain Chosen to host Corvette Dealers from across the US

We are happy to announce that http://www.springmountainmotorsports.com/ is the host of the Official 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Dealer Sales Academy. Only the most successful Chevrolet dealers across the country, meeting strict criteria for allocation of the hot new C7's, will be selling the redesigned 2014 Chevrolet Stingray when sales begin later this year. The 2014 Corvette Stingray coupe will be shipped to eligible dealers in the third quarter and record sales are projected.

The Sales Academy is an extensive 1 ½-day training program, and before the Dealers can sell the highly sought-after Corvette they must first designate specialists in Stingray Sales and Service to attend the course at our facility. The program will run at Spring Mountain until March 2014.

Radical News

European Tour, New RXC and NARRA Champions

Spring Mountain CEO John Morris, and Ken Melgoza, Club Spring Mountain Radical Cup SR8 Champion for 2012, visited Radical Motorsport in England this month for a tour of the facility and an introduction to European racing. Radical has been working on their latest masterpiece, the Le Mans-inspired road legal RXC. The RXC is a result of 3 1/2 years of design and development to create the world's most extreme road-legal coupe. Inspired by contemporary LMP design, the RXC brings a true taste of Le Mans to the road. Dramatically styled, high in performance but with low running costs, the RXC is powered by a 3.7-liter V6 engine, and capable of speeds up to 175 mph and 0-60 mph in 2.8 seconds.

Radical's first ever closed-cockpit car made its debut at Europe's largest automotive expo, the Frankfurt Motor Show. The US debut of the road-legal RXC is coming soon as members of Club Spring Mountain have ordered the RXC for delivery to the facility this fall. Radical expects to build up to 50 RXC vehicles per year.

During his visit Morris tested the hot new Radical RXC in the rolling hills of the Ardennes on the beautiful and historic race circuit. The verdict is in, and Morris declares "It's a winner! I predict we'll be seeing many of our Club Members and friends driving RXC's on the road and at the track."

As Champion of last year's Radical Cup, Melgoza won a chance to race at the world-famous Spa Francorchamps in Belgium. Club Spring Mountain members John Falb and Bruce Jones also raced in the European contest.

NARRA News - 2013 Radical Cup Champions

The 2013 Radical Cup champions have been crowned, and we're proud of Club Spring Mountain members Gerhard Watzinger and Tony Bullock, who clinched their class championships in style after each stormed to victory during Sunday's season finale at our sister track, Monticello Motor Club. Also on the podium were Club members Jim Booth (SR8), George Kurtz (SR3), Adam Merzon (SR8) and John Falb (SR3). Narrowly missing the podium in the exciting contest and running a very close 4th was "Superman" Mark Allan.

As champions, Watzinger (SR8) and Bullock (SR3) will each receive a race in the Radical Cup Euroseries next year. As he collected the most points of any driver in either class, Watzinger has also won a chance to test a 200mph+ capable Le Mans prototype (LMP2) car.
