The Z06 Corvette hits the trackIn a move to further position Corvette for the European sports car market comes the the Corvette Performance Academy. The Academy, which consists of a fleet of ten Corvette C6 models and four Z06 models, will give drivers the opportunity to see what the Corvette can do when pushed to its limits on a controlled track course. Three different levels of training are offered, aimed at both the potential Corvette driver as well as those more experienced Corvette owners. Level One is the Corvette Safety Training Course. With the Academy’s professional instructors, drivers will learn the basics of handling the Corvette test tracks in Germany. The day-long course includes four, 75-minute driving sessions. Slaloms, braking tests, low grip skidpans and learning about understeer and oversteer, make it an experience to remember. Level Two is the Corvette Performance Training course, and is aimed for more experienced participants. Four, ninety-minute driving sessions work on getting the best from the superb dynamics of the Corvette, balancing the car using the throttle and steering. The day-long course is offered at tracks in Germany, Sweden, France and Belgium. Level Three is the Z06 Advanced Training course. Only the most experienced and skilled drivers can participate, and they must have completed the first two levels of training. The Z06 course takes place at the Goodyear test tracks of Colmarberg in Luxembourg and Miréval in France. Each Z06 course is limited to just 12 participants to ensure maximum track time. The focus of the Z06 course is the development of basic racing techniques to transition drivers from the C6 to the Z06.
