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."

McLaren MP4-12C vs Honda Civic BTCC racer vs Honda Fireblade British Superbike
We know the McLaren 12C is other-worldly fast. But how does it compare
against a Honda Civic British Touring Car Championship racer and a British
Superbike Championship-winning Honda Fireblade?

We took a McLaren 12C to Rockingham Motor Speedway to face its toughest
challenge yet. Could it outpace a Honda Civic BTCC racer driven by former
champion Gordon Shedden and the pairing of 2013 British Superbike champion
Alex Lowes and his Samsung Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade? Which would set the
fastest lap? Would the Civic's superior grip make up for the power deficit?
Would the McLaren be too much to match on the straight? Or would the 'Blade
offer a blend of light weight and high performance impossible to match?
