If you’ve been following the news about Cadillac’s reentry into the Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) World Championship, you’ll know that the CTS-V race car is slated to participate in its first race in March.

Cadillac competed previously with the CTS-V Sedan, winning the Manufacturer’s Championship in 2005 and 2007 (the last year of entry), as well as the Driver’s Championship in 2005.

This year’s series begins St. Petersburg, Florida from March 25 to 27. Cadillac’s race car, a CTS-V coupe, was first shown off at the North American International Auto Show earlier this month.

There is a lot that of testing that goes into commissioning a racing program. That testing has begun, with CTS-V race car hitting the track for the first time at Sebring International Raceway in Sebring, Florida. The car was driven by Johnny o-Connell and Andy Pilgrim.

Cadillac’s entry into the SCCA will be a two-vehicle team. The race cars have been produced by an an outside racing development firm, Prat & Miller.

The cars are based off a production CTS-V Coupe and then are modified to SCCA standards. We’re looking forward to see how Cadillac scores with its reentry into the SCCA series.
