Cadillac Racing put the finishing touches on the final round of track tests this week in Sebring, Fla., as a pair of CTS-V Coupe racecars prepare for their first weekend of competition March 25-27 at the Streets of St. Petersburg.
The event will mark Caddy’s return to the Sports Car Club of America World Challenge GT series. Cadillac last competed in the series in 2007 with a racing version of the CTS-V Sedan. Cadillac Racing will compete twice on the Streets of St. Petersburg course: Saturday, March 26, at 11:50 a.m. and Sunday, March 27, at 4:30 p.m.

“We look forward to getting back on the track,” said Don Butler, vice president for Cadillac marketing. “We know the competition will be tough, but we’re also confident in our performance credentials. The CTS-VCoupe provides a great foundation for building a world-class racecar.”
Johnny O’Connell, a three-time GT1 champion in the America Le Mans Series, and Andy Pilgrim, who won the 2005 SCCA World Challenge GT class in a Cadillac, will be behind the wheel of the CTS-Vs.
Along the way, Cadillac filmed a short series of films titled Refueled, which you can check out after the jump.
