Each race is run for one hour, with a mandatory driver change at thirty minutes.
Callaway’s job is to supply these race teams with race cars, and to support them as clients. Every notable sportscar manufacturer has an entry in this series. Audi, BMW, Corvette, Porsche, Mercedes, Lamborghini and Bentley. The budgets are large, and the competition is very, very close. A qualifying field is covered by 1.8 seconds at most tracks. All cars are subject to a Balance of Performance compliance where power and weight are adjusted by the sanctioning body to achieve parity between brands. First, Second, and Third finishers are further handicapped with a weight penalty, but carried for only the next race.
The Callaway Corvette entries are the blue and white Valvoline-sponsored No. 77, driven by Daniel Keilwitz and Jules Gounon, and the RWT blue and blue No. 13, driven by Barth and Hacklander.
