# 13 RWT C7 GT3-R rises up at Sachsenring ADAC-GT finale
Following a cool precedent of the Corvette Racing Team, auctioning parts and donating proceeds can help salvage the day.
The # 77 started 14th on Sunday thanks to repairs by Callaway’s heroic crew working through the night.
Another pileup stopped Sunday’s race to clear the track from YES, another wreck. In addition to man-hours, it can’t be overstated how today’s high-tech race cars require special expertise to get them right.

Coming close for several years, Corvette driver Sven Barth secured his first Pirelli Trophy by finishing second in class to Lamborghini driver Rolf Ineichen in Sunday’s race.
The 2019 ADAC-GT Masters Championship was clinched by # 31 Audi R8 drivers Kelvin van der Linde (South Africa) and Patric Niederhauser (Swiss) in the HCB-Rutronik Team’s first year and also a first by the penultimate race of the season.
