Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course NASA TTA winning lap April 2012 (2011 Mustang GT 5.0)
First weekend of competition with the car in NASA's Time Trial Class A
(Best lap time wins but lots of cars on track at once).
This is Mid-Ohio's "Club Course" meaning it has the chicane after turn 1.
I have lots of room to improve myself (the driver) and take some time out
of the lap.
This weekend I was competing against a prepared Lotus Exige S240 and a
prepared Porsche Cayman S.
The car was prepared by Rehagen Racing and I would like to thank my sponsor
Ford Motor Company for allowing me the ability to go out and do this.
The second lap of this video was shaping up to be better than the first but
the corner worker in turn 12 didn't wave the caution flag for the Viper who
spun and was in the middle of the racing line. I just wanted to not hit him
in the driver door and ended up with an embarrassingly big tank slapper.

passing a Lola T212 during braking, I grab 3rd instead of 1st gear and

2012 Cadillac CTS-V on race track
Pilgrim Podiums for Team Cadillac; CTS-V Coupe Still Leads Manufacturer,
Driver Points in World Challenge
O'Connell Finishes 7th in Cadillac Sports Car Grand Prix of Monterey
. Team Cadillac Drivers 1-2 in Driver Points after 5 Races
· Pilgrim Holds Off Porsche for Podium Finish
· Detroit Up Next on World Challenge Series Schedule
MONTEREY, Calif. -- Andy Pilgrim had to keep track of a lot of information
in the closing laps of Friday's Cadillac Sports Car Grand Prix at Laguna
Chief among them was the position of one Lawson Aschenbach.
Aschenbach, who had to start 15th in the field because he missed
qualifying, rocketed through the field to fourth place late in the
50-minute Pirelli World Challenge Series event on the 2.238-mile layout,
and had he passed Pilgrim in the final four laps, he would have wrested the
Manufacturer's point lead from Team Cadillac.
He didn't, and Pilgrim hung on to finish third in his No. 8 Cadillac CTS-V
Coupe, keeping Cadillac's lead intact and cutting the distance to the
driver point lead to just 14 points.
"Manufacturer points is all we care about," an enthused Pilgrim said on the
podium after the race.
Pilgrim had a couple of chances to put a car between himself and
Aschenbach, but missed by inches on both. The Volvos of race winner Randy
Pobst and second-place Alex Figge were just too stout off the corners to
get it done.
"It was an elastic band effect with Volvo," Pilgrim said. "They were slow
going into the corners and rockets coming out. I had the best shot on
restarts, to try and get Alex. He was very clean; we were bumping, but it
was clean. He gave me room and I gave him room. But once I got to the end
of the corner, they took off. "
Having that buffer between himself and Aschenbach was tops in his mind.
"I tried, really, because I wanted to put him [Figge] between me and
Lawson," Pilgrim said. "Having Lawson behind me, holy smoke...I had to just
be perfect for those four or five laps at the end. Luckily, we were. It
just really kept me focused. Lawson raced me fair and really close."
Pilgrim said he had an advantage on Aschenbach under braking with his
Brembo brake system.
"The brakes on our car made it for us. He didn't make anything on us on
Pobst ran away with the victory, crossing the line .699 seconds ahead of
his teammate, Figge. Pilgrim was third, 1.58 seconds back, and Aschenbach
came home fourth, 1.711 seconds behind.
Johnny O'Connell had rough going in the No. 3 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe,
starting seventh and finishing there. He was carrying 196 pounds of
sanctioning-body-mandated weight, and had a struggle to stay with the lead
O'Connell, a master of the restart, had a couple of chances on late
restarts to improve his position, but couldn't close the deal before Turn
Despite the extra weight he carried, O'Connell was pleased with the day.
"Restarts were good today," he said. "The guys did an amazing job; the race
car was the best car I had all weekend. But that much weight was murder
here. Not just in the momentum I had to carry up the hill, but in the way
my car was handling. You want to win, but you're glad that Andy had a
really good run in third. It was a good event for Cadillac."
After Pobst, Figge, Pilgrim and Aschenbach came the Porsche of Steve Ott to
round out the top five. Mike Skeen came from 16th to finish sixth, followed
by O'Connell and the Porsches of Justin Marks, Tomy Drissi and Bret Curtis.
O'Connell still leads the driver points by 14, 573-559, over Pilgrim, with
Pobst now third at 502. James Sofronas, who was third coming in, retired
midway through Friday's race and finished 15th in GT. Aschenbach is fourth
In the Manufacturer's race, Cadillac doubled its lead from Utah and stands
four points higher than Porsche, 37-33, after five races. Volvo leaped into
the battle in third place, with 25 points.
Next race for Team Cadillac is on home turf June 1-3 at the Cadillac
Detroit Grand Prix on the Belle Isle course in the middle of the Detroit
Friday's Cadillac Sports Car Grand Prix of Monterey is set for broadcast
May 27 at 11 p.m. EDT on the NBC Sports Network.
