When you are the president of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, you are used to being surrounded by young drivers who like to go fast.
For Doug Boles, this situation was a bit different because the young driver was his 16-year-old son Carter who just got his driver’s license before the two of them embarked on a trip to Pahrump, Nevada to visit the Ron Fellows Performance Driving School at Spring Mountain.
Boles shares this first person account of going to Spring Mountain with his son at Autoweek.com and it’s a very good read.
Boles talks about the driver training his son had leading up to the Spring Mountain Adventure. While we talk about the Ron Fellows School as a place to drive Corvettes fast, it’s actually a great experience for a new driver to learn some important safety and car-handling skills that can be used in everyday driving situations.
As for his son Carter, he also penned an article for Autoweek.com from his perspective of the high performance driving school. Like all of us that have attended the Corvette owners school, Carter became somewhat attached to driving “his” #89A Admiral Blue Corvette Stingray at the school and will tell anyone that it definitely beats his driver’s ed car back home.
