Racing is in our blood. From stock cars to advanced prototypes, Cadillac Racing has a rich history of racing around the world and around the clock on some of the world’s most challenging circuits.
Cadillac engineers developed a new high-compression, overhead-valve V8 for its production cars. Soon after, NASCAR race teams recognized its high-performance and race-winning potential.
The 1950 24 Hours of Le Mans race saw the entry of two Cadillac Series 61 racers: one a production model fitted with a racing engine, the other was nicknamed “Le Monstre” for its wild aerodynamic appearance completely unlike that of any post-war Cadillac.
In 2000, Cadillac made a remarkable return to racing with a radical new prototype racer; the Cadillac Northstar LMP. Motivated by a race-prepared 4.0L Northstar Twin Turbo V8 engine, the LMP was a powerful statement and important milestone for the brand.
The Cadillac CTS-V.R debuted in 2004 in the ultra-competitive SCCA World Challenge GT Championship. Based on the first-generation Cadillac CTS-V, it was a proven success with a Manufacturer Championship, a Driver Championship, 10 overall wins, 7 pole position starts and 36 podium finishes before retiring in 2007.
Alongside the debut of the first-ever CTS-V Coupe in 2011, we charged back to professional racing with two Cadillac CTS-V.R Coupes in the Pirelli World Challenge GT series. The following year, the team claimed back-to-back Manufacturer Championships and three consecutive Driver Championships.
In recent years, Cadillac Racing has doubled down its racing efforts with the introduction of the first-ever Cadillac ATS-V.R homologated to FIA GT3 specs. At the Pirelli World Challenge, a North American series featuring shorter sprint races, the ATS-V.R showcased its raw power in the highly competitive GT and SprintX GT classes.
Cadillac Racing also returned to endurance racing, with the introduction of the first-ever Cadillac DPi-V.R prototype racer, which won its debut race at the Rolex 24 at Daytona. The IMSA Weathertech Championship is a global racing series featuring longer endurance races where the Cadillac Racing DPi-V.R currently dominates the Prototype class.
