RACING PEDIGREE WITH A CELEBRATED PAST

RACING PEDIGREE WITH A CELEBRATED PAST


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 notably challenging circuits.

A WINNING FORMULA

A WINNING FORMULA

“LE MONSTRE” OF LE MANS

The 1950 24 Hours of Le Mans race saw the entry of two Cadillac Series 61 racers: one was a production model fitted with a racing engine; the other was nicknamed “Le Monstre” for its wild, aerodynamic appearance that was completely unlike that of any other postwar Cadillac.

NORTHSTAR GOES RACING

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.


RETURN TO SPORT CAR RACING

The Cadillac CTS-V 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, 12 overall wins, seven pole position starts and 36 podium finishes before retiring in 2007.

BACK AGAIN TO CLAIM THE TITLE

Alongside the debut of the first-ever CTS-V.R 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 A CLASS OF ITS OWN

There was no stopping it: 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 GOES TO WORK ON THE TRACK

Cadillac Racing has returned to endurance motorsport with the introduction of the first-ever Cadillac DPi-V.R prototype racer, which won its debut race at the 2017 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 shines among the Prototype class.
