    Doggone, that's too bad.

    I managed to get one pic before my battery pooped out. Not bad, huh?






    We were treated like royalty by the Cadillac personnel. We were greeted when we exited our car in the corral, then escorted to the registration tent where a beautiful continental breakfast awaited, then led to the Cadillac display with several new models and racing simulators were placed, and finally given a tour of the paddock where the two cars of Pilgrim's and O'Connell's were being readied to race and Don (the Cadillac "tour guide") showed us the two cars and answered our questions.

    I'm DEFINITELY going again next year but for all three days instead of just Friday. Outstanding experience.

    Can't say enough about my Cadillac experience at the Detroit GP. My Dad worked 33yrs. for Cadillac (Hamtramck Poll-town Plant) now retired was overwhelmed with the level of hospitality that was provided to us. Looking forward to tomorrow & if you are in Detroit get you're a#% down here & enjoy a world class event put on buy a world class crew. Cheers! & yes can't wait to drive another 36hrs from Texas/back next year.

    Re: Detroit GP Cadillac Corral Tickets

    I got to drive a parade lap in company car! The Marketing Manager for V comes up to me in the suite and says "Paul would you and Molly like to do a parade lap?" YES I said immediately. Didn't know if I was driving or riding or what. Didn't matter. So they give me the fob to a BD sedan with 600 miles on it, a Cadillac guy and his wife hopped in the back and we hit it. Gizmo in front of me says he hit 100 but I only got to 85 or so. I need practice in an automatic I guess. Wait. No I don't.

    Hey thanks Gordy for letting me drive! It was a blast as always to drive a V as it was intended.

    My auto wagon had 27 miles on it and I gave it a rough couple more. I think I broke 90 but didn't get to 100. I was sliding every turn though.

    Re: Detroit GP Cadillac Corral Tickets

    I gotta stop working so much and pay attention to the forum! I bought my 3 day super ticket the first day they were available. Having a great time but know it could be better with the crew. I did run into GizmoQ and a few other forum members today.

    Here are some of my videos

    If you're in the area I'm in Grandstand 1, Section H

    Wish I could have made it down there. Would love to see a couple photos of the corral if anyone has them. Will be watching on TV for sure. Enjoy and hopefully they will be back next year!
