Thanks for posting this!

This is a really nice event, and one where the promotor has done really nice job in the past with their other Corvette shows in Texas.

Worth checking out, and if I was closer, I'd be there :hi

Thanks for the heads up SnS. Planning to race my Callaway GT4 C6 Corvette that weekend during the SVRA events.

The car is one of the five “experimental” cars built on the Bowling Green assembly line in 2009 for Callaway (“EX16”). They were the first experimental Corvettes built by GM for racing since the 60s GrandSports. It’s a cool Callaway Competition story for another day.
