Debut of Callaway C7.R GT3 is the big deal at Hockenheim finale
The Callaway team revealed its new C7.R GT3 for 2016 replacing its predecessor which out punched its weight winning 2 championships over a decade going into 2015.
Rules & restrictions militated in favor of new cars. By seasons’ end the Callaway “A team” of Daniel Keilwitz & Andreas Wirth finished 7th in the driver standings.
# 13 Team RWT drivers Remo Lips and Sven Barth in their Callaway customer Corvette surrendered their lead in the Gentlemen’s class which was also a bit disappointing.
The advanced styling of the Callaway C7.R GT3. bears hints of aero features found on German DTM Series Audi, Mercedes and BMW race cars. Eric Curran and Boris Said will drive one of the Callaway Corvettes under a sponsorship arrangement with Whelen, a worldwide company that specializes in emergency lighting and equipment.
