In just four days, Bob Lutz will race a Cadillac CTS-V against other qualifying high-performance sedans. It all started when Lutz challenged the media on a conference call to find a “stock production sedan on the planet that could outperform the CTS-V on the track.”
After 120 applications, GM has picked five races to participate in the Cadillac V-Series Challenge at the Monticello Motor Club in upstate New York.
The 5 winners consist of three journalists including Jalopnik’s Wes Siler who will be driving a Jaguar XFR; Jack Baruth of The Truth About Cars (no word on what he’s driving); Lawrence Ulrich a freelance auto writer at The New York Times (no idea what he’s driving either).
Private winners include Michael M of Whitecoff, NJ who will be bringing is BMW M5 and Tom of Philadelphia, PA who will be racing his Audi RS4. Also joining the event will be Chris of Ann Arbor, Michigan who will be bringing his Cadillac CTS-V to learn more about the capabilities of the sedan.
We’ll have more details as Oct. 29 gets closer.
