After challenging for the title with its C7 GT3 during its debut season last year, Callaway Competition is set to return to ADAC GT Masters in 2017 with an unchanged duo of Daniel Keilwitz and Jules Gounon.
Last year the German-outfit, which produced the C7 GT3 in-house at its headquarters in Germany, scored three wins and took the title race down to the wire at Hockenheim.
“Our goal is clear. We aim to fight for the title again this year,” said team principal Giovanni Ciccone. “This year’s ADAC GT Masters will probably be more hard-fought than ever before, but we’ve done our homework and have a strong, proven pair of drivers. Daniel has been one of the fastest drivers in the series for many years now, and Jules has amazed us with the way he’s developed since making his debut last year.”
“I’m really looking forward to the start of next season. I now know all the circuits and am therefore much better equipped,” added Gounon. “I think we’ll do especially well at the tracks with fast corners like the Sachsenring and the Red Bull Ring where the Corvette is really excellent.”
The addition of Callaway’s entry to the 2017 list brings the total number of Corvette C7 GT3s to two after RWT announced its campaign earlier this week.
The ADAC GT Masters season will kick off on the weekend of 28-30 April at Motorsport Arena Oschersleben.
