ADAC GT Masters: Vice-champion’s Title for Team Callaway
Team Callaway Competition took second place in the overall drivers’
At the final weekend of the ADAC GT Masters at the Hockenheimring from 28 to 30 September 2012, Team Callaway Competition, which was equipped by BILSTEIN, took second place in the overall drivers’ standings and in the team standings, even though Lady Luck was not smiling on this home game by the team from Heilbronn. Diego Alessi and Daniel Kielwitz, who led the drivers’ ranking by eight points at the start of the race, were forced to drop out right at the beginning of the first race on the Saturday. 24 hours later, the duo made up some lost ground in their Corvette Z06.R GT3 fitted with MDS from BILSTEIN, especially in the second half of the race. An unfortunate overtaking manoeuvre in the hairpin bend then put an end to Alessi’s attempt to catch up, however. The dream of winning the championship was over after an outstanding season. But by finishing ninth in a thrilling race, Alessi and Keilwitz at least managed to gain valuable points to give them second place in the overall rankings.
With their various technologies, BILSTEIN have the suitable damper system for every race series. The Modular Damper System (MDS), which forms the basis of a wide range of high-performance damper applications, is used in the high-powered cars that race in the ADAC GT Masters. The MDS suspension settings can be adjusted quickly, precisely and independent of one another with the high-quality aluminium adjustment wheels in rebound and compression stages. In this way, the Modular Damper System was adjusted to suit the requirements of the Callaway Corvette and meet the demands of each race track in the ideal manner with ten clearly perceptible clicks from one (soft) to ten (hard).
BILSTEIN congratulates all of the teams.
