Callaway Competition will make its return to the Baku World Challenge this year, as two of its in-house built Corvette Z06.R GT3s join the grid in Azerbaijan in pursuit of the $225,000 prize fund.

Reigning ADAC GT Masters and FIA GT3 champion Daniel Keilwitz and his current co-driver Andreas Wirth will compete in the car entered by Callaway itself.

The second entry comes from customer team RWT Racing, with Sven Barth and David Jahn behind the wheel, the duo scoring their first ADAC GT Masters victory at the Nürburgring a few weeks ago.

Callaway Competition entered a car for Jeroen Bleekemolen and Daniel Keilwitz last year, but was already eliminated after the first free practice session following an accident.

The German team is currently developing a GT3 version of the new Corvette C7.
