FIA European GT4 Class 2008-

In late 2007 Corvette Europe approached the FIA seeking approval to race a C6 Coupe in the GT4 category.  After much study the FIA approved their request.  Kroymans shipped a new 2008 C6 Z51 six-speed coupe to Callaway Competition in Leingarten, Germany. 

In less than six weeks the Callaway team stripped the new car of all non-essential parts including carpet and standard seats.  A new FIA approved rollcage was installed along with new brakes, center locking wheels and coil over suspension. 

The LS3 6.2 liter 437 hp engine remains stock except for the addition of a dry sump lubrication system. The car is also equipped with an air jack system to insure rapid tire changes. 

In late February the car debuted at the Miréval, France test track. Danny van Dongen and FIA GT1 Corvette pilot Mike Hezemans were the first to take the wheel of the new white Callaway. They both had positive things to say about it.

"The Corvette is fast, very fast and quite easy to drive."  For the 2008 season Gravity Racing based in Holland provided the technical support for Kroymans Racing.

After a sucessful debut at Silverstone finishing 2nd, the future looks promising for this new breed of racecar.
