    Thumbs up Re: CTS-V Driving Event at Monticello, NY

    The response to this program has exceeded even our highest expectations and all program slots were booked in a matter of hours. Should we plan another CTS-V drive event in 2009, those on this programís wait list will be among the first invited. In the meantime, we encourage you to contact your local Cadillac dealer to schedule a private test drive when the vehicles arrive in December. Until then, stay tuned.

    The drive was fantastic! The Ring record car was there, and I got to lap in it.
    What at blast!

    I was one of about 300 in the sun am session. One of the CTS chief engineers was on hand and was extremely informative and receptive. The skies finally cleared and the track was dry. Drove the V six speed and the torque and power from this car is incredible. Got up to triple digits on the straightaway as most did and having a pro driver providing tips sitting next to me was worth getting up at 5am. The brembo's on this car stop this car in impressive fashion. Cadillac sponsored driver Andy Pilgrim was on hand and was very outgoing and informative and signed a pretty cool poster of his race car. The XLR session sports the 440 horse, but I dont understand why cadi does not make this 2 seater in a manual. At the end of the session a quick event review entitled all participants to a very cool pullover with cadillac and monticello race club patch on the exterior. They had 2 gents fly in from the UK for this and they probably will say it was worth the one in a lifetime experience. I believe if I decide to go 556 HP it would have to be in a six speed. Only 150k will allow you to join this club as a member--wow. Any quest's let me know.

    My wife and I were also there for the 8am-12 session on Sat. Just got home and posted a lengthy write up on the Corvette Forum under "Off Topic", Other Cars. Please post me with questions. PS: all of us will receive DVDs of ourselves because Cadillac had both interior and exterior cameras on for our second lap. They'll have to bleep out a lot of "Holy s***s".

    Re: CTS-V Driving Event at Monticello, NY

    Hi David,

    I just wanted to let you know what a great experience my wife & I had on Sunday at MMC. It was the first time I was able to drive on a real race track. Everything was first class and all the employee's either Cadillac or MMC treated us like we were part of the family. What a nice surprise to receive jackets at the end after filling out the surveys. Nice touch !!!!
    My main reason for attending this event was to test drive the new CTS-V. I am a current owner of a 6 speed Convertible 1999 Corvette with 115,000 miles on the clock. I am in the market for a new car and have been following all the updates on the 2009 CTS-V. I am not going to sell my vette because I love it so much and wasn't sure if i wanted to get a new Z06 or the new CTS-V. The chance to drive around in a family sedan and have the power of a corvette z06 is just amazing.
    I heard a cadillac rep say at the event that people that attended will have a better chance by moving up on a wait list at the dealers purchasing a CTS-V. Is this true? I guess one thing that might stop me from purchasing this car is dealer sticker premuims. As you know a Z06 is being offered with a$10,000.00 discount. I won't pay a large premium just to own one so I hope to be loyal to GM customers the dealers won't do this. Anyway thanks again to cadillac for a wonderful experience and one I will never forget. Especially the 105 mph on the straight away with my wife wearing a race helmet in the back seat Can't get better then that. Any wisdom you can provide with the availablilty with this car and if it will sell for MSRP would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Ira

    David,
    Although I never got further than the waiting list upon signing up, I still would like to thank you guys for putting on an event like this. This is truly in line with the spirit of this car and kudos to Cadillac/GM for making the effort to enable folks to experience it in such a lively setting. This mindset truly has appeal to me as I am passionate about cars that can readily participate in club events at the track, yet can still haul around kids! I hope to have the opportunity to take a test drive in the near future. If you guys consider an additional drive event, perhaps VIR would be worth considering!

    Thanks again.
