The third race of the SCCA World Challenge season took place Sunday on the streets of Long Beach, California. The SCCA World Challenge placed auto manufacturers in head-to-head street competition guaranteeing excitement for the entire race. The Long Beach Grand Prix was Cadillac’s second outing with their CTS-V racer since it restarted its racing program earlier this year.
The 2011 SCCA World Challenge kicked off in St. Petersburg. Cadillac debuted at the Streets of St. Petersburg with a double header race featuring Rounds 1 and 2 of the 2011 World Challenge season. Cadillac CTS-V Coupe driver O’Connell placed fourth and seventh while Pilgrim, driving the other CTS-V racer, finished 11th and eighth to put Cadillac in second place in the World Challenge GT Series.
“Given the quick development time and consolidated testing schedule for our racing program, we were really happy with the results at St. Petersburg,” said Jim Vurpillat, Cadillac global marketing manager. “We’re excited to be back in Long Beach …”
The CTS-V Coupe racecars are based on the popular Cadillac CTS-V Coupe production car. It features Brembo brakes, a supercharged 6.2L V-8 engine delivering a husky 556-horsepower and a magnetic suspension system that reads and reacts to the road 1,000 times per second.
To keep the car legal for SCCA competition, the supercharged 556-horsepower engine has been detuned to make it naturally aspirated, 460-horsepower engine. Also, to take 800 pounds out of the car, the steel body panels have been replaced with carbon fibers.
With three separate classes of competition (GT, GTS and Touring Car) the World Challenge is North America’s top production car-based championship. World Challenge events are a maximum of 50 minutes start to finish, with standing starts.
To get all the thrill of driving the Cadillac CTS-V Coupe, visit your local Houston Cadillac Dealer to test drive one today. Just remember you won’t be racing on the streets of Long Beach!
