    MFest presents "The Showdown" @ California Speedway

    Well it has been well documented what happened last time Mfest had an event. A bunch of rowdy Cadillacs showed up (see coverage here) along with our friends at Cadillac http://gmauthority.com/blog/2012/04/...es-mfest-2012/. This time the event promoters want to make it a little more formal . We have been invited to formally participate in a new event by MFest called "The Showdown". This is an event that will allow Cadillacs to go head to head with BMW's on the racetrack, in the autoX, and throughout the show car paddock. It would be great if we can get a few of the Cadillac community members to help us waive the Cadillac Flag at this event with a strong showing. Let's get a list together.



    Event Details -
    When: November 18th, 2012
    Location: 9300 Cherry Ave Fontana, CA
    What: BMW's vs Cadillac's
    Whos Invited: Everyone






    Thanks,

    Looks like it is going to be a great time. My buddy has the new M6 and I will tell you that thing feels like a beast. Good luck to all running in this event.

    Looks like a blast! I hope BMW will have a booth with complimentary oil pumps for their new turbo cars.

    It would be great if there could be an event in NY in the spring time. I just got my wagon 6m and I'd love to participate in something like that

    Yeah that would be pretty cool. I know Alan @ CTSVRacing.com has been really active in the racing world on the east coast. I would ask him if there is anything in the works. A 6speed wagon = AWESOME!

    Thank you,

    +1 on the tune up for the finale at Willow. This plays into the Cadillac's hands pretty well considering this is a high HP track. So there will not be as much of a penalty for the additional weight the CTS-V's carry.

    Thanks,

    Awesome! It would be great to see you back out on the track at another event. The more high HP cars we can get there the better.

    Thanks,

    A friend of mine in FL sent me this pic. Apparently this was taken during the World Challenge of Sonoma and he thought it was my car. "
    McQueen" strikes again.....Rich is the man, but im betting on his daughter who is with him there will kick his butt when she hits the track. Nice exposure for The Cadillac Challenge. Looking good McQueen.LoL

    Hahahaha! Nice grab of the screenshot! I think I will have to be there to regulate on the 18th. You can count me in. Maybe I can manage to bring some spectators along.
