Carsport On Michelins This Year
”After four years of very good cooperation with Pirelli, we have now switched to Michelin tires,” says Carsport’s Toine Hezemans.

“The Corvette C6 arrived late, and there was no possibility to test the Pirelli tires .. but Pirelli has done a great job, and really makes very good tires now. But as Pratt & Miller, the official representative, has won all the ALMS and Le Mans races (on Michelins), it is for us a much more sure bet to go for the Championship with Michelin.

“We thank Pirelli for their outstanding help and we are happy to make competition with them in 2006.”

Hezemans also points out that all the GT3 Championship cars will be running on Michelins this year – “and we’ll have six Corvettes running in that championship.”

Three will be run by Carsport – Callaway and three by Riverside.

“We are still looking for drivers for one Team Carsport – Callaway Z06.R. From what I hear, our rates are highly competitive too, so the value for money that we can offer is quite exceptional. Drivers also have the option to buy the car if they wish. I am looking forward to this season, as the FIA GT3 series promises to provide a fantastic arena in which our car is set to shine.”

Here's the GT3 car at Paul Ricard, in the first week of March.
