Double celebration for Callaway Competition's Keilwitz, Kirchhöfer
Marvin Kirchhöfer and Daniel Keilwitz swept the ADAC GT Masters meeting at Red Bull Ring in the #1 Chevrolet Corvette C7 GT3R of Callaway Competition, taking pole positions for both races and then converting it into two victories at Austrian Grand Prix track. The Saturday’s win was the first this year for the 2017 championship-winning car and then one more win came on Sunday.
Kirchhöfer/Keilwitz shared Saturday’s podium with two BMW Team Schnitzer’s crews. Timo Scheider and Mikkel Jensen were second in the #42 BMW M6 GT3, ahead of Victor Bouveng and Dennis Marschall in the #43 BMW.
On Sunday, the #1 Corvette crossed the finish line four seconds ahead of #63 Orange 1 by GRT Grasser’s Lamborghini Huracan GT3, driven by Mirko Bortolotti and Andrea Caldarelli. The third-place trophy went to Markus Pommer and Maximilian Götz, a duo in the #47 HTP Motorsport Mercedes-AMG GT3.
