As Corvette increasingly stakes its claim to world-wide fame and becomes more desirable in Europe, GM has taken steps to support that interest. The Corvette Performance Academy was developed to promote safety and skill among Corvette drivers.
A series of events on demanding test tracks in Germany, France, Sweden, Belgium and Luxembourg will allow drivers to learn how to safely take the Corvette to the extremes.
Three levels of training are available:
Level one, Corvette Safety Training, offers drivers the opportunity to learn the basics of handling the Corvette on test tracks in Germany.
Level two, Corvette Performance Training, is aimed at more experienced participants. Four driving sessions work on getting the best from the superb dynamics of the Corvette. The day-long course is offered at tracks in Germany, Sweden, France and Belgium.
Level three, Z06 Advanced Training, is aimed at the most experienced and skilled drivers, only eligible after having successfully completed level two.
Fees for programs vary from as little as 500 to as much as 2500 euros.
