I am surprised we can even park in their lot...this track from what i read is awesome with 450' elevations..and was just built in 2008...i e-mailed Ron the dude in charge of this place and he was cool...He e-mailed CADILLAC and said hopefully CADILLAC will e-mail me for the 4 tickets i need...damn i hope i hear from them soon... I forget the dates though..is it like the 20th till23rd of August....
    I ran the full course configuration earlier this year with COMSCC in my Miata. It's an ok track. Many of the facilities and amenities that make it a 'premium' track have yet to be installed. I found it not quite as challenging in the car I was in due to the fact that most of the corners are clearly meant for a high speed car.

    It would definitely be more challenging in a V. I made a video of me running a hot lap at the track that you can see here:

    I'll take it if you're offering! I emailed them this morning and haven't heard back yet. I'm in DC and could meet up for the drive. My car is NA, but I'll do my best to keep up with your turbo'd awesomeness.

    No. They will provide 2011 CTS coupes, CTS-V sedans and CTS-V coupes.

    They break the attendees up into 3 groups and you'll go to different sections of the track where you'll drive the respective models with a driving instructor for a predetermined amount of time before rotating to the next section and a different model Cadillac.

    The last time I was there (Oct '08) they provided a light breakfast/lunch prior to the indoctrination and track time. Bring a helmet if you own one, or they will provide one.

    They usually hand out various Cadillac swag after the event. All-in-all a fun day since you are thrashing on their cars on a very nice private 'closed course'.

    Your only costs will transportation (gas) and lodging (unless you live reasonably close). If you log on to the Events site, read the FAQ at the bottom. Should answer most of your questions.
    I am going to log in right now to events, cause i have a question: if i bring someone who is not going to drive in the event, would he or she have to also have a pass to get in....?

    Re: Anyone joining me at Monticello raceway on 8/21-22 to drive '11 CTS-V Coupe?

    Hey guys, I was just browsing around and saw this thread. I was just curious if it is possible to go to this event just to watch? I am actually in Monticello now and would really like to check it out. Seems like it would be fun. I would really be interested in Sunday. Please let me know if it is possible, I could really use a relaxing day, been very busy lately. Not that it matters I have a 2008 Hot Lava CTS. Just would like to go and check it out as I am pretty close by.

    Thanks
