    The GT3 grid in RaceRoom keeps growing as we are adding another new car to the line up!​

    Callaway Corvette C7 GT3-R

    The all new Callaway Corvette C7 GT3-R builds on the famous Corvette Z06.R GT3 and comes with once again more performance and aerodynamics.


    This astonishing racing car was developed by the company Callaway Competition based in Leingarten (Heilbronn, Germany), 151 kilometers south of Frankfurt and 10 kilometers west of Heilbronn. Callaway Competition was established-one in 1985 under the name “Woehr & Ciccone” company that has specialized since its foundation on body manufacturing, vehicle repairs and racing modifications. In 1988, the company “Woehr & Ciccone” expanded to take over the distribution of Callaway in Europe. The racing department Callaway Competition got its name in 1994.

    The car sets new standards in the league of GT3 race cars and should, as its predecessor C6-based model, become a worldwide sensation in GT3.

    New gt3 cars i'm so happy. Is it possible to have gt3 and lmp cars in the same custom championship? I would like to mix these categories? Is it still in your short plan?

    Thats definitely a fantastic acquisition of the GT3 corvette license.

    However, will we get this car in GTR3 class too? As the C7R GT3 only run in ADAC, as far as I know.

    Very beautiful GT3 car. The GT3 lineup was amazing.

    BUT, the multiplayer was awful. Lot of reclamations, lot of problems when start the RACE. Lot of problems when we have more the 24 cars in the GRID. When Sector3 will be correct this!?

    And of course, the intermittent problem with the secret phrase in the dedicated server.

    Help us!

    Awesome addition :) Can't wait to get my hands on that great car. The C7R is my favorite of all new GT3-cars...
    The C7R had a gueststart on VLN and another start was planed for Blamcpain endurance - not sure if callaway was ther this year? But callaway definitely plans to enhance their shedule for the next year and sell some of their C7R to customers...
