Ferrari Challenge - Miller Motorsports Park
Some of the video I took with my Kodak Zi8 (4/8/10) up at the track. A
little chilly, but worth it!
The Ferrari Challenge allows Ferrari customers to enjoy their cars in a
structured competitive environment, racing against other Ferrari owners.
The drivers are amateurs, NOT professionals. The F430's race each other,
but the FXX and 599XX are part of the Corse Clienti (Racing Client) program
and do NOT race; they just run laps...very fast laps!

Cadillac CTS-V Racing Coupe Racecar 2011
Cadillac is turning their attention to racing as the company has just
wrapped up testing of the new CTS-V Racing Coupe.
Set to enter competition on Saturday, at the Streets of St. Petersburg, the
CTS will battle other contenders in the highly-competitive Sports Car Club
of America World Challenge GT series. It will be driven by Johnny O'Connell
and Andy Pilgrim, who are no strangers to racing as O'Connell is a
three-time GT1 champion in the America Le Mans Series and Pilgrim claimed
victory in the 2005 SCCA World Challenge GT class.
As for the car itself, it features an aerodynamic carbon fiber body and a
supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine that develops 535 hp (399 kW / 542 PS).
While this is 21 hp (16 kW / 21 PS) less than the standard CTS-V Coupe, the
car weighs 1,000 pounds (454 kg) less than the production model.
According to O'Connell, "The CTS-V Coupe racecar has been very nimble
during testing and seems to brake very well. I not only expect it to do
well on a street circuit, but everywhere we compete."

Cadillac Returns To Racing With CTS-V Coupe
Two teams set to compete in SCCA World Challenge GT Series
* Racecar based on award-winning CTS-V Series line
* Program designed to validate, enhance Cadillac performance
* Andy Pilgrim, Johnny O'Connell signed as Cadillac drivers
DETROIT -- Cadillac announced today it will return to racing in 2011 with a
race-prepared version of its CTS-V Coupe competing in the Sports Car Club
of America World Challenge, North America's top production-based racecar
The move returns Cadillac to a series where it competed from 2004 to 2007.
Competing in the GT Class with the CTS-V Sport Sedan, Cadillac captured the
Manufacturer's Championship in 2005 and 2007 and the Driver's Championship
Cadillac will field two teams in the upcoming SCCA World Challenge GT Class
with a racecar based on the CTS-V Coupe. The CTS-V line, which also
includes the CTS-V Sedan and CTS-V Wagon, was recently named to Car and
Driver magazine's 10 Best list for 2011.
"Returning to racing in the SCCA World Challenge is a great way to
demonstrate the performance and capability of the CTS-V Coupe," said Don
Butler, vice president for Cadillac marketing. "The racecars in this series
are production based, which allows us to validate our performance against
the best of our competitors on the track, and not just the showroom."
Cadillac is working with Pratt & Miller, a New Hudson, Mich., engineering
firm which specializes in motorsports, to develop the CTS-V Coupe racecar.
While some of the production CTS-V components will be modified due to the
unique demands of racing or to meet the SCCA series' technical rules, every
effort is taken to maintain as much production content as possible.
"The SCCA World Challenge lends itself well to a natural transfer of
knowledge," said Jim Campbell, GM vice president for Performance Vehicles
and Motorsports. "The series will become a key test-bed for Cadillac. We
anticipate using what we learn on the racetrack to ensure the V-Series
stays on the cutting-edge of performance."
The first event in the SCCA World Challenge is March 25-27 in St.
Petersburg, Fla. Johnny O'Connell, a three-time GT1 champion in the America
Le Mans Series, and Andy Pilgrim, who won the 2005 SCCA World Challenge GT
class in a Cadillac, will be behind the wheel of the CTS-V racecars.
Introduced for the 2003 model year, the CTS-V has quickly earned a
reputation among luxury sports car buyers. For the 2011 model year,
Cadillac added the CTS-V Coupe and the CTS-V Sport Wagon to the CTS-V Sport
Sedan, creating an impressive family of performance vehicles. The CTS-Vs
feature Brembo brakes, a supercharged 6.2L V8 delivering 556 horsepower and a Magnetic
Ride Control suspension system that can read and react to the road 1,000
times a second.
Started in 1944, the SCCA organizes and supports racing at all levels from
amateur to professional. The World Challenge series is designed to provide
teams, manufacturers and aftermarket suppliers a competitive
production-based race series in which to prove their products. The races
follow a 50-minute maximum time limit, with the number of laps and total
distance determined by track configuration, lap times and race conditions.
