This past Sunday April 15th was the inaugural Wilson Niblett Performance Corvette Driving Experience held at the Driver Development Track at the Mosport International Raceway.   This event came about through the joint efforts of Wilson Niblett Performance and the Powell Skill Driving Group.  It is a Corvette specific driver education that has a focus on skilled performance driving techniques.

Working closely with John Powell and his skilled Team, we designed this course to ensure that it encompasses the needs of all Corvette driver skill levels from novice to experienced.  At this course we had drivers that included all levels of experience right up to ex-racers.  This course is also beneficial to those that just want to learn better defensive traffic skills and polish their incident avoidance skills.

The weather held off until later in the day and afforded all the drivers the ability to verify how these factory Corvettes are capable of handling all road conditions at high performance levels.  I think more than a few of us were impressed with the “out of the box” handling even in the wet weather!

We all had a great time and are looking forward to Level 2, which will be held June 26th, 2007 on the Grand Prix Track at Mosport International Raceway.

At the end of the day Devon Powell, who has extensive Corvette racing experience, took me out around the wet track for a blast in a C6 Z06.  I have always been impressed with these cars but I am more of a fan now than ever.  Corvette is a true world class performance car!  A race car with street manners!
