Corvettes at Carlisle is taking place the next few days from August 24-26th, and the annual show will be honoring one of the great engineering minds behind upgrading the Corvette over the years, Reeves Callaway. With a unique display of three Callaway Corvettes that raced the famous Le Mans track, along with an extra moment of revving in Reeves Callaway’s honor, a feature segment in the event guide, and some memorable moments planned by the Callaway Owners Group car club it’s a notable event. But things aren’t stopping there, as Callaway Cars has a pretty big debut set to take place at the annual event.
What New Callaway Corvette Products Will Be At Carlisle?
Spotlighting Callaway Cars during Corvettes at Carlisle this week will be the debut of the production Callaway Supercharged Corvette C8s and the new C8 Wide Body Package. Callaway staff will attend to show event participants the latest creations from the company and answer any questions you might have. So, if you’ll be there, be sure to visit Callaway Cars to see these exciting developments firsthand. They can be found in their usual location, next to the GM Engineers’ Tent on the Manufacturers’ Midway. Several Callaway Powerfully Engineered vehicles will be displayed, including a Callaway supercharged GMC Sierra used to tow one of the new supercharged Callaway C8 Corvettes to Carlisle from the company’s HQ in Old Lyme, Connecticut.
In addition, Callaway Cars will have a selection of new apparel on display and available for purchase, including show specials on Honker Air Inlet Systems, shifters, and new nine-spoke forged C8 wheels. There is also expected to be a large turnout of Callaway owners and their vehicles on display in the Fun Field.
Since this year’s Chip’s Choice theme is about the 24 Hours of Le Mans, all three Callaway Corvettes that raced at the famous French endurance race will be on display. This will be the first time all three cars will be displayed as a tribute to the man whose name is on the cars. Featured in the display will be the silver 1994 Callaway LM #001, a Silver 1997 Callaway C7R, and a red, white, and blue 2001 Callaway C12R. Each car is made even more special by its unique history during the legendary races, which we’re sure will be available to read about by an accompanying plaque next to the car. Finally, Saturday will have a remembrance event on the main stage at 3:00 PM local time, celebrating the life of the legendary company founder.
