Bob Lutz - Cadillac CTS-V Challenge

General Motors Company’s Vice Chairman Bob Lutz is out preparing for the upcoming Cadillac V-Series Challenge where he will race qualifying racers (and comparable vehicles) in a Cadillac CTS-V at the Monticello Motor Club on October 29. GM has just released a video showing Lutz practicing for the big day.

The event has drawn 120 applications, out of which GM will only choose five winners. The deadline to apply for the challenge was last Friday.
