RWT Customer Team wins Gentleman’s class at Red Bull Ring while the hex falls on Callaway Team

In 2011 Austrian billionaire Dieter Mateschitz bought the former Österreichring  circuit referred to as Zeltweg, upgrading, expanding and re-naming it the Red Bull Ring. 

Sven Barth & Remo Lips partnered to win the Gentleman’s class finishing 7th on SAT and SUN in their Callaway prepared C6 ZO6 GT3.

  The Callaway Team Corvettes finished 2nd and 4th on SAT, looking for a win on SUN when the hex fell. The team kindly shared the following:   In the # 66 Corvette Andreas Wirth took over from Daniel Kielwitz and was leading Sunday’s race ahead of 2 Lamborghinis until heavy vibrations from the left rear wheel forced the car out with 6 minutes left. In the # 69 Corvette Diego Alessi had a bad crash in the first corner.  The tie rod was heavily bent to 2.5 degrees of toe-in.  He fought back to 8th.  Missed the white line on pit stop entry for the driver change and was served a drive through penalty.  Patrick Assenheimer ended up 15th. Here’s to better times ahead at Spa on June 27-28. Results compiled by Wayne Ellwood.
