Cooper Ready to Take Callaway’s ‘Championship Pedigree’ to PWC

Michael Cooper on his new deal with Callaway Competition USA and the team’s upcoming Pirelli World Challenge Debut

Recently announced Callaway Competition USA driver Michael Cooper says he believes the program is ready to hit the ground running in it’s return to U.S. shores and Pirelli World Challenge.

After three years spent as a General Motors factory driver, the last two with Cadillac Racing’s stalwart ATS-V.R program in PWC’s GT category, Cooper shifts into a new role a Callaway-employed driver alongside PWC debutant Daniel Keilwitz.

Cooper said that with years of racing and development already behind the Callaway-built Corvette C7 GT3-R, including the teams’ championship in ADAC GT Masters this year, he expects the team’s transition to U.S. racing to be a smooth one.

“It’s obviously very exciting,” Cooper told Sportscar365. “It’s even more exciting that the car has already been developed.

“It has a championship pedigree, and then it’s bringing all the pieces together here in the United States to make for a succesful program.
