Cadillac Racing had won a prize in the finale racing of the past 2007 World Challenge season when Andy Pilgrim driving the team’s previous generation, the Cadillac CTS- V sedan. Since that Cadillac had not won any prize in racing. However since three years absence, lately in this past weekend the Cadillac team returned to the sport again this season and has finally won at Mid- Ohio with Andy’s teammate, Johnny O’Connell, seat behind the wheel of the team’s new CTS-V Coupe.
At the race one in Mid-Ohio, this past weekend’s World Challenge double headers in which O’Connell was running second and could’ve without difficulty won. We can see the CTS- V Coupe’s off- track excursion and how and when O’Connell passed the Corvette that contacted him after returning to asphalt road.
In that race, O’Connell succeed in finished eight lap, however in race two of the double header on Sunday, O’Connell got an opportunity for redemption. This is the time for Cadillac when O’Connell took the benefit of last-lap contact between the two race leaders to catch the win after working his way up seventh to third.
In the manufacturer’s case Cadillac is second with 30 points while Porsche leads with 56 points. In August 26-28 at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, California we will see the next two rounds for the Pirelli World Challenge.
Since 1902, Cadillac has been a former luxury auto brand and in recent years, Cadillac has engineered a historic growth led by clever engineering and advanced technology. However if compared to the success racing in the past 2007 with the previous generation CTS- V sedan, it can be said that Cadillac Racing has not had the same stage of success yet.
