Callaway Competition USA is preparing for this weekend’s first outing in the Pirelli World Challenge by taking their No. 26 Callaway Corvette C7 GT3-R to the bumps of Sebring International Raceway. The practice session comes in advance of this weekend’s Firestone Grand Prix on the streets of St. Petersburg.
Last Thursday, the team showed off their new racing livery and announced they would be starting the season with just the one Callaway GT3-R race car with driver Daniel Keilwitz. The No.26 Callaway was the same car piloted by Keilwitz that won last year’s ADAC GT Masters championship.
Pete Callaway shared some additional photos on his facebook page of the new Callaway Corvette C7.GT3-R on Saturday before the car was shipped to Florida for testing at Sebring before competing in the PWC.
This morning, Keilwitz and the Corvette C7 GT3-R are in Sebring and have put out a couple of videos showing the testing of the car:
The Callaway Corvette C7 GT3-R will take its first laps with the PWC GT field on Friday morning for practice. The PWC’s Race 1 is held on Saturday at 3:50 PM ET and Race 2 is Sunday at 3:15 PM ET.
