C7 GT3 R 005

Chassis 005 is the first customer car destined to race in Japan. It was ordered by Shinji Takei, principal of Bingo Sports. His other businesses include a dealership of exotic and luxury cars. Ernst Wehr from Leingarten was on hand for testing at the Suzuka Circuit on Aug 17. It finished 8th in class in the 10 hour race on Aug 26. Other drivers are Yuta Kamamura and Y. Mikasa.

The C7 Corvette GT3 R was unveiled in October 2015 at Hockenheim before the final race of the ADAC GT season.  The body by Canadian Paul Deutschman, longtime designer for Callaway, is inspired by the DTM cars.  The aggressive aerodynamic kit consists of heavily modified bumpers, fenders, side sills, and a massive rear wing, significantly bigger than the one on the Pratt & Miller IMSA C7.R.  The carbon-fiber diffuser and the vented rear fenders round out the aero package.

In 1994 principals Ernst Woehr and Giovanni Ciccone, based in Leingarten GER joined with Reeves Callaway, a manufacturer approved by Chevrolet to form Callaway Competition.

Callaway Competition replaced the C6 ZO6 GT3 that served the team for a decade with the C7 GT3 R.
