  • Ron Fellows Driving school question

    I'm attending the C8 driving school next week. I know someone will know this, are the condos at the track or nearby? A satellite view on google maps doesn't really show where the accommodations are on the grounds, just curious.

    The condos are right at the track. And they are very nice indeed!

          Unless things have changed, after the last track event, students are released. The club was closed and nowhere on site to have a farewell beverage or snack with your new friends!! You do not get a condo for that night following graduation. The only decent lodging in Pahrump is the Holiday Inn Express. The best place to eat, hands down, is at the winery just outside of town. If you have the time and have never been to Death Valley, make a visit there a must! Enjoy!!

            I have that figured into my plan, actually going back to Vegas after the last school event. Rooms in Vegas pretty cheap. Got a tip from the gal that signed me up for the school about where to stay back in Vegas. Worked out well. Close to airport etc.

                    I was there in September and had an amazing time. The condos are right there on site. The clubhouse is where meals were served and the bar is. The food was pretty good. Be prepared for the bar tab. I bought a round of beers for the guys I ate with. When I got the tab.. I think four beers was like $10. Had I known that I would have bought a round for the entire room. Even the gear in the registration center was reasonably priced. Enjoy your time there!

                        Perhaps the beer is cheap so you'll wander on down the street to one of the casinos and leave the rest of your money there! I'll probably opt for water, as much as I like beer. It is the desert after all, and having spent a fair amount of time in AZ., I know I'll need some hydration. I might wander down the highway to the Walmart, or somewhere, and pick up a six pack of water to have in my room. Looks like the temperatures this time of year are going to be comfortable too. SO......I got that goin' for me.

                          Note, not all condos have balconies. Our unit did not. It depends which unit you are in. Also, I'm sort of surprised at all the raves for the condos. They were comfortable, but small. I would not really call them condos. I think they were between a hotel room in size and an embassy suites room.

                          And, the instructions from the RFDA say that you will need a car i.e. have someone drop you off and then pick you up for lunch. I guess that depends where you are staying. If you are in the A,B, or C condos, everything is within a 2-5 minute walk. I didn't use my car the entire time I was there. The longest walk, which you had to do just once if you arrived the night before, was to walk to the registration and back to the classroom. That was all of 4/10's of a mile each way. Otherwise, EXCELLENT experience. Great instructors, who really care about teaching you about your car.

                            Thanks, let me ask you this. The info letter I got stated that I would have to return to the visitors center after breakfast the first day to confirm class details and location. I wonder why that isn't established the minute you check in. I'm sure it won't be a problem, but it seems like an extra unnecessary step in the process. I don't really care if I have balcony, although might have a better view of the track being higher off the ground, for a photo op. My next step is to figure out what to wear there. Probably just jeans and a couple of long sleeve T's to rotate. I like to travel light, and it looks like daytime highs next week are low to mid 70's, so just a jacket for cool nights might be it. Appreciate your input.

                              There's different buildings of "condos" so some are older and smaller and don't have balconies. Not a biggie.

                              That piece of track you see from that balcony might never be used while you're there as they vary the configurations daily and there are dozens of configs. Probably no photo ops from there.

                              Walking down the road to the casinos isn't happening. You are vastly over estimating poor old Pahrump NV! You could walk 70 miles to Las Vegas but...

                              Have fun!
