These are exciting times for Callaway Cars. The headlines from Callaway Cars latest press release reads, “Busy Weekend at Callaway Cars” and lists three major events where Callaway will be racing two Corvette C7 GT3-R’s at the Nürburgring-Nordscheife, displaying a new Callaway Corvette SC757 at Bloomington Gold held at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for 2016 and exhibiting the new Callaway Z06 SC757 at the Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction at the Mohegan Sun casino resort in Callaway’s home state of Connecticut.
What the Callaway press release didn’t reveal was Callaway Cars has had a lot of busy weekends lately including the company’s recent move of its West Coast facilities from Santa Ana, to Temecula, California. Callaway’s Santa Ana, California headquarters were right around the corner from Vette’s editorial offices and it was kind of neat to the Callaway sign on the building as we drove past on the Newport freeway. But as they say nothing is forever, so Vette wishes our friends at Callaway Cars the very best at its new larger West Coast facilities in Temecula, California
Coming off a double victory at the last ADAC GT Masters race earlier this month, Callaway Competition has brought two Corvette C7 GT3-R's to the Nürburgring to compete in the VLN Adenauer German Payment Trophy event on June 25. Americans Boris Said and Eric Curran will pilot the Whelen Engineering sponsored No. 31, while the AutoArenA No. 69 will be driven by German racers Patrick Assenheimer and Dominik Schwager. The Callaways are scheduled to return to the Nürburgring on October 8 for VLN's DMV 250 race, again competing in the SP9 class. Racing at the Nürburgring-Nordscheife this year is part of Callaway Competition's C7 GT3-R program preparing to compete in next year's ADAC Zurich 24 hour Race 2017.
Moving to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for 2016, Bloomington Gold bills itself as the world's largest Corvette show. A new Callaway Z06 SC757 will be on exhibit this weekend in the Bill Stasek Chevrolet display, located on the Speedway's Foyt Drive, shown above. Callaway Factory Staff will be supporting Stasek's expert sales team this weekend, helping present the 757 horsepower supercar. Bill Stasek Chevrolet is Callaway's Authorized Dealer in the Chicago area, providing exceptional sales, financing and warranty support.
This weekend, Callaway Cars will also be displaying the new Callaway Z06 SC757 shown here at the Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction at the Mohegan Sun Casino/Resort. The event is expected to be heavily attended as it is Barrett-Jackson's first Collector Car Auction at the Uncasville, Connecticut resort, and it is the only Barrett-Jackson auction scheduled for the Northeast US. The Callaway Z06 SC757 will be on display at Mothers' “Big Rig” exhibit, in Mohegan Sun's Showcase Pavilion. Callaway is proud to partner with Mothers Polishes.
Callaway Cars has left the building: A sad sight for Orange County, California Corvette fans, but great news for the Temecula folks known as the Temeculites.
