Cadillac CTS-V World Challenge Rips Up Detroit GP - /SHAKEDOWN
Leo Parente and ShakeDown visit the Cadillac Racing SCCA World Challenge
team as they take on the Detroit GP. CTS-V did its own work on the Belle
Isle track ripping up the world-class competition [not the track, like
IndyCar did] winning both WC races. As the event was held in the backyard
of GM Headquarters, a few Cadillac engineers / execs [and the Pratt &
Miller team] provided us the opportunity to explore exactly how Cadillac
bridges the connection between racecar and road car - Technology, Process,
and Passion make the trip.
And thanks, Cadillac Racing video team, for the on-board footage.
