Callaway Competition will once again have four Corvette Z06s on the ADAC GT Masters grid in 2014. The team behind the reigning winners of the drivers´ championship, Diego Alessi (42, Italy) and Daniel Keilwitz (24, Germany), has already booked four places in the Super Sports Car League for 2014 and will constitute the largest contingent in the ADAC GT Masters for the fourth consecutive season.
After securing the drivers´ championship title in 2013, the squad led by Ernst Wöhr and Giovanni Ciccone is aiming to successfully defend the title in 2014. "We will be competing in the ADAC GT Masters next year not simply because our drivers won the championship and we intend to defend the title, but because we really feel at home in the series," said Callaway team boss Giovanni Ciccone. "We are currently hard at work preparing for next season; after all, we would like to be the first to mount a successful defence of the title in the ADAC GT Masters." It has not yet been decided who will drive the four Callaway Corvettes next year.
In every ADAC GT Masters race staged so far, at least one Corvette developed and prepared by Callaway Competition in Leingarten has lined up on the grid. Since 2007, The American sports car has achieved 17 pole positions and 16 wins in the ADAC GT Masters. 2014 will mark Callaway Competition´s last season with the successful Corvette Z06, though, since for 2015, Callaway are working on a completely new GT3 sports car based on the latest incarnation of the legendary American sports car, the Corvette C7 Stingray.
The 2014 ADAC GT Masters season kicks off on the weekend of the 25th to 27th April in the etropolis Motorsport Arena, Oschersleben. All 16 races of the 2014 ADAC GT Masters will again be broadcast live throughout Germany, Austria and Switzerland on kabel eins television.
