I received my packet today from Cadillac. Parking pass, tickets and special hospitality stickers. The parking corral is near turn 11 (hairpin) on Shoreline - really close to the track. They did this with the Corvettes last year. Can't wait!

Don't know yet; maybe one or two people who bought the 2-seat package are going as singles and I buy their extra tickets and swing in the back door that way.

04-12-12, 02:08 PM
Thanks to one solo attendee, I've now got one ticket covered; THANK YOU very much! If anyone else is a single and wants to sell their extra ticket I'd love to find one more for my son. Not sure whether or not I'll be able to particapate in the caravan down to the track and park with you all. If not, I/we will need to catch a ride with someone who wouldn't mind bringing me back to D3 for my car.

Anyone?

Hello,

Quick update. The Cadillac Corral has sold out as previously mentioned. We are working with Cadillac to see if we can get more spots opened up. For those looking to caravan to the Grand Prix, we can certainly do that with some of the cars we have going down to the event from D3 Cadillac's & Coffee. Please make sure you are here at D3 promptly as we have a BUNCH of people expected to show up, much more than what is on the list. Looking forward to seeing everyone at the track. I will have a map up this afternoon showing where everything is going to be laid out.

Thank you,

Sorry, no recipable agreement available on mine. Mine was just hit / hammered by a young female while was waiting for a school bus loading / unloading.
No good deed goes unpunished. Only the very rear corner of the passenger side rear bumper, but my body shop of choice quoted $610 & 3 days to remove rear bumper, sand, fill, and match paint.

Looking forward to meeting new Cad CTS-V & STS-V people that I've never met, re-acquainting with ones that I have met that are still talking to me, & checking out the Cads. Looking forward to seeing everybody there.

No worries, but I do plan on hammering my own car in one of the Cad Challenge events...getting the suspension upgraded soon.
