Cadillac Racing with CTS-V Coupe testing at Sebring
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."

self-deprecation, Nico Rosberg and Michael Schumacher play on their
internal rivalry within MERCEDES GP PETRONAS team. Former world champion
Mika Häkkinen -- an iconic figure who has appeared numerous times in
humorous Mercedes-Benz TV spots over the past 15 years -- highlights, with
the aid of an energy drink, on which team the rivalry should be focused at
the start of the season.
"The new Formula 1 season gets under way on Sunday with the race in
Melbourne, and the deck has been shuffled again," explained Anders Sundt
Jensen, Vice President Brand Communication Mercedes-Benz Cars. "The spot
makes it clear, in a rather fun way, that motorsport is a way of life for
our brand. In addition, it shows that we don't admit defeat if at first we
don't achieve the goals we have set ourselves, but rather that we take up
the challenge -- both within our team, as well as united against our
The 45-second spot, created by Jung von Matt, will be shown by all major
German broadcasters from tonight until Sunday to mark the start of the
Formula 1 season.
