Callaway, A Featured Marque at ASF 2023

American Speed Festival – M1 Concourse – Pontiac, Michigan

September 28 to October 1, 2023

Come join us at the 2023 American Speed Festival, held at M1 Concourse in Pontiac, Michigan. This event features some of the most significant marques in automotive performance history, and Callaway Cars will be a major part of the experience. Vintage Indy cars, historic stock cars, endurance racers and modern-day supercars will appear on the M1 Circuit. Spectators will have the opportunity to see race cars in action from every era as they negotiate the 1.5-mile road course. Entertaining activities are scheduled for the entire weekend.



This year, three significant automotive anniversaries will be celebrated:

• 100th Anniversary of 24 Hours of Le Mans

• 70th Anniversary of Corvette

• 50th Anniversary of I.R.O.C.



In addition, the accomplishments of Reeves Callaway, Callaway Cars and Callaway Competition will be celebrated throughout the weekend.


Approximately 5,000 enthusiasts are expected at the 87-acre property. Numerous activities are planned for the weekend and Callaway Owners Group members will be given a designated link to provide a streamlined method of signing up. Examples include a day-long display of Callaway Corvettes on the Plaza in front of the M1 Event Center on Friday, a lunchtime Callaway Corvette parade on the M1 Circuit, available credentials for Callaway owners to participate in the Speed & Style Car Show and for the Café Le Mans Drivers' Lounge for daytime hospitality.



On Friday, the 29th, at 10AM, a Corvette Symposium is scheduled with a panel of ten Corvette legends, including Callaway Competition's Ernst Wöhr and Callaway Designer Paul Deutschman of Deutschman Design - Montreal. Special Callaway Owners Group parking will be located at the front entrance of the M1 Event Center on Friday, and a Callaway Supercharged Corvette C8 Wide Body will be on display there, all weekend long. On Sunday, over 250 high-end collector cars are expected to be on hand in the "Speed & Style Show". Click the blue button below for more show details.


Several significant Callaway race cars will be on display. Pete Callaway will be running demo laps on the M1 Circuit driving "Frieda", a 1994 Callaway SuperNatural Corvette LM. Callaway's first race car debuted at the 1994 24 Hours of Le Mans and qualified on the GT2 pole with Boris Said behind the wheel. It was Boris' first time at Le Mans as well. The following year, three Callaway Corvettes were entered in the 24 Hours of Le Mans. This car, #73, was the first Callaway to cross the finish line at the 1995 event, as Drivers Johnny Unser, Enrico Bertaggia and Frank Jelinski finished in 2nd place in GT2 and 9th overall.

Fellow Callaway Owners and Enthusiasts,

After the week at the annual Callaway Reunion at Carlisle in August where so many came to celebrate the vehicles and work of Reeves Callaway, we've got another opportunity to celebrate such a man and his life.

The event this month - the American Speed Festival at the M1 Concourse in Pontiac (just outside Detroit) Michigan is hosting a celebration of Callaway Cars as a way to pay tribute to Reeves Callaway, who passed away in July. This event is not to be missed.

Aside from the camaraderie of sharing your Callaway vehicles with one another, you will have an opportunity to take your vehicle in this 1.5-mile-long road course during parade laps, plus see & hear some of the most iconic Callaway Competiton Corvettes during demo lap sessions. Team Callaway will be present, including Pete Callaway (President), Mike Zoner (Managing Director), Ernst Woehr (Callaway Competition), Paul Deutschman (Callaway Designer), and several more.

Every Callaway entrant gets two free passes for the weekend worth ~$400. These complimentary passes include participating in the parade track laps on Friday and full weekend access to Cafe Le Mans for food and drinks - BUT YOU MUST PRE_REGISTER YOUR CALLAWAY to obtain these perks.


It’ll be a great celebration of Reeves and everything Callaway Cars/Callaway Competition. Here is the link for registration:
