Much like the papal decree coming from the Vatican, Calloway Competition has just received the requisite letter from Chevrolet informing them that Chevy will in fact provide them the homologation forms necessary for FIA compliance. Calloway will represent Chevrolet in the GT3 series as the only cars fielded to carry the factory backed Corvette C7 GT3 name.
This is huge news for Calloway, who has been one of the most successful specialists in the GT3 racing series in their C6 incarnation of the Corvette from 2007 to present day holding numerous Driver and Team Championships. Chevy has been so impressed with the success over the last 6 years, that they are once again going to the winning well to give Calloway what many reviewers have thought to be a truly special and revolutionary drive train, power plant, and ultimately car.
The Calloway team has probably been hard at work development for the new car for months now as other tuners have been, so I am sure that the first car will begin testing sooner than you think. Exciting times are afoot.
