Some of our good friends in the Corvette business are driving the new C8 Corvettes this week at Spring Mountain. We grabbed this pic via Instagram from Matthew Beaver of Whitmoyer Chevrolet who is at the Corvette Owner’s School for training on the C8.
Yesterday we discussed some of the specialty tools that are required to service the new C8 Corvettes. The tools are just one of the requirements for dealers to sell the new mid-engine sports car. But there is also another component of required actions for selling the 2020 Corvette and that’s the dealer training sessions at the Ron Fellows Performance Driving School at Spring Mountain.
Dealers can opt to send either a C8 Corvette sales rep or both a sales rep and service technician to Spring Mountain for the C8 dealer training at the racetrack. It’s not a cheap endeavor with dealers having to pick up the cost of the training which starts at $3,500 for the cost of sending one sales specialist to Nevada.
The sales rep training officially began this week and for the next month or so, Chevrolet sales reps from across the country will be rotating in and out of the Pahrump, NV racetrack as they each receive their two-day training course. This on-track training gives real-world experience to those sales reps and it should translate into better customer service when it comes to answering questions from potential buyers.
We’re not sure what kind of content these dealer-based YouTubers will be able to put together while they are out there, but we are anxious to hear their follow-up reports when they get back to work.

For the general Corvette enthusiast, this time period we are in seems a bit sleeply with no real news being made. But behind the scenes, events like this tells us that it’s ‘pedal to the metal’ as Chevrolet prepares to officially begin retail Corvette production in early 2020.
