    Question 2014 Cadillac Driver Academy

    Greetings group! I've signed up for the 2014 Cadillac Driver Academy at Mosport Speedway in Bowmanville Ontario. I was wondering if anyone has been to one of these deals? My friend bought a Jaguar a few years back and they offered a similar event and he had a great time. Is any one on here going to the one in Bowmanville? Thanks

    AL

    I went to this last year when I had my ATS, it was a BLAST!!! 100% worth it! we had quite a few different driving scenario's, lapping times and autocross and we got treated to a fantastic lunch you're going to LOVE IT!







    and lastly me at the GIGANTIC Auto-X course they set up ...I mean Its a huge track


    ...some show off CTS-V's showed up

    Re: 2014 Cadillac Driver Academy

    Dont think though that you can just rip around the track, you get put with an instructor all the time, each person does, they sorta keep all the cars from crashing by telling you when to pass and stuff. Whats funny is we had 3 CTS in our group and the instructors had us pass them because the ATS were WAY quicker then them.

    But for everything else (0-60-0 / Slalom / reaction time tests / launch controls) you're alone/with your buddy/girl

    For the Auto-X you're alone/with your buddy or G/F and they time the group members to see who has the fastest(no you're not paired with CTS-V's they're alone lol) Not to bragg but I had the fastest times well just a tick faster than a guy with a 3.6, and I was the only one there with a manual, the staff were laughing so hard when I drifted through the slalom haha! ...oh and you get a bunch of runs through obviously

    Oh and theirs the skid pad to!! loved that!! but they let you use THERE car for that one, a RWD V6, I drove the !@$@#$@ outta that one drifting around the skidd pad, that car was so abused

    Oh and half way through the day we gotta really nice lunch and entertainment, it was buffet style but I was quite surprised at the quality of everything, OHHH and an awesome gift bag at the end with some REALLY nice stuff in it

    If you live anywhere even REMOTELY close to this I'm telling you...DO it you'll be happy you did....

    It's too bad they wouldn't do something like this in Western Canada...
    When you turn your car on, does it return the favour? '14 Cadillac ATS Performance 3.6L AWD in Phantom Grey Metallic and Morello Red Interior -ARRIVED!!

    Is this in Canada only? SRT has a fan web site where events like this are posted. Is there a Cadillac "fan" site?

    That's a pretty stout set-up.

    Thanks going to Dyno it this summer, we're expecting Middle-Low 300's, by the end of the summer I'll hope to hit 400+WHP with a ZFRturbo and supporting mods

    Oh and at the end of the track day our group each got a beautiful framed photo of our cars taking turn 3 really nice memento. As well as a few other things in the goodie bag.
