: D3 Cadillac to invade MFest 2012

As the title mentions, we are looking for some more action on the west coast. As MFest is typically referred to as the pinnacle of Bimmer shows, we couldn't think of a better location to showcase what we can do to Cadillac vehicles then to invade what would be considered enemy territory :devil:. Since we will already be in the area for round #3 of the Cadillac Challenge, we thought we would make the most of our trip to Vegas. This should be VERY interesting as some of the BMW brands best tuners will be on track showcasing their products to their BMW fanbase.

When I had my M3 I attended Mfest for the last three years. It is a epic event. I know most of the guys including the event organizer, MFest Chris. When he saw my V he called me
a traitor jokingly. How I would love to go to this event but I'm leaving for Barbados Sat. evening of the event. I might be looking at postponing one day just to make it out.

It says that it's sold out. What are the chances that we can get it? Looking into making the drive out from Texas & just maybe get a caravan going from The Lone Star State ;)

Well we have one more announcement that we are waiting to make in regards to MFest that could allow space for other Cadillacs to come out and participate. Hopefully we can say something about this tomorrow...

Hello,

We can get about 20-40 cars in a Cadillac Corral. Let me know if you want to spearhead a cruise from Texas.

Preliminary agenda:
Main Cruise from the state line
Friday April 20th, 2012 @ 10AM
Gold Strike Hotel Parking Lot
1 Main Street Jean, NV 89019

Leave by 10:30AM to MFest

Make sure you let us know because we have special BMW badges we need to install on all the Cadillacs so we can sneak everyone in. :stirpot:

I spoke with Chris today. This is very tempting. I called the airlines to postpone my trip by one day and they want $245 to do so. Fckin aholes. $245 is not going to make or break me but WTF?. So it looks like I'm in.

Sounds good!!! We still have one more small announcement in regards to mfest that we should be able to announce shortly. I dont think anyone's going to expect this one....

Well if you want to get tangled in with over 1000 BMW's you can certainly do so. I dont think our caravan is going to get caught up in that mess. We are just going to meet at the track. All the registration information for MFest Show is on their website. Give us a call and we will make sure you have our information when we are rolling up to Vegas.

Keep in mind we will be drag racing on Friday night. We have a new combination we have been waiting to try out on a good track, so this WILL BE INTERESTING!

LOL - Das Hindenburg :hide:

All joking aside, this is going to be a great event that we are excited to have an opportunity to represent the Cadillac Tuning segment. It seems they already have a lot of respect for the Cadillac CTS-V's, but haven't had a chance to see them in heat. So this will be great for them to see it first hand.

Dr D,
I hope we dont need to register with Mfest,, because they are sold out (registration is closed). Can we just show up with D3 and get ourselves and our cars in that way? You mentioned that you'll have room for 20-40 cars in your Cadillac Corral. Please let us know, cause it looks like you will be our only way in.?? Sorry, Im confused :hmm:

Dr. Design
04-05-12, 07:24 PM
Hello,
Nope, you would register through us. The way we are getting this all to work is that our display would consist of cars that wanted to show. So the traditional registration procedures for this show would go through D3. We have enough space for 20-40 Cadillacs as mentioned. Registration cost is $150/per car if you want to show or be in the Cadillac Corral in the show. However, if we can get 20-40 cars we can drive the price down to $100/per car.

For those that are interested in attending MFest to spectate. You will need to just get tickets at the gate.

Hope that helps. Let us know if there are any questions.

Thank you,

Thanks! That clears things up nicely.. I am in for sure, so I guess I'll just wait until it gets closer to the event to see how many cars want to join D3 to be in the Cadillac Corral / Show and that will dictate final price. When we are ready, do we just call you to give our info and pay? If so, what phone # and contact do we ask for? One more question,, when we pay for one car, does that include admission for two people (similar to mfest registration)? Thanks again for the clarification. This should be a blast!!

Mfest was great and it was nice to meet Tim and the crew from D3.. It was a site to behold watching Legionnaire shoot 3 foot flames out the back ripping up the track,, bad-ass!! All the CTS-Vs got a great reception from the BMW crowd,, especially with corporate Cadillac there to help represent. They brought 2 simulators (60K each) and were giving away Cadillac Racing t-shirts. Good times.
Thanks for the hospitality D3! Hopefully we can do it again next year..

Hello All,
Sorry for the delay in getting images up. It’s been pretty hectic since we got back in town.
2012 MFest was the hottest event in Vegas, literally. At 130+ degrees on the track surface, we were in for some slippery fun out on the track. As we snuck into Vegas Friday night we all stayed low key until Saturday morning. We were going for the element of surprise. Once day broke we stationed the vehicles behind the low key rig brought out by Cadillac…. Okay well it wasn’t exactly low key.

http://www.d3cadillac.com/graphics/race/MFest%202012/D3+Cadillac_MFest_2012-04.jpg

Luckily we had an 8AM track call time for the first session. So we were able to take advantage of some of the “cooler” temps on the track. The road course at LVMS is a great track with lots of nice rhythm sections to keep you on your toes. We had (6) cars that were invited for the 3rd Round of the Cadillac Challenge. Two cars from each class, C1/C2/C3. All of the Cadillac’s on track were pretty quick. The smaller cars seemed to have an advantage in the braking areas and turns. But the Cadillac’s held their own and typically would pull on the straights. Our Legionnaire entry was sporting some fresh Toyo R888’s and had pretty good traction throughout the day. Even with the increasing temperatures, our BMF intercooler and Aluminum Radiator did their job to keep the power plant running cool.

Cadillac had an impressive spread on the paddock with a trio of Black Diamond CTS-V’s and those incredibly awesome simulators. We would like to say thank you to Cadillac for coming out to support the Cadillac Challenge and the enthusiasts invading MFest. The overall reception from BMW owners was pretty good. They were all really nice and easy to get along with. With the presence on the racetrack and in the vendor midway, we certainly helped change the perception of people thought Cadillacs were and are capable of. We were very proud to help waive the Cadillac banner in a competitive environment, such as MFest.

So without further ado, here are some of the images from our time at MFest:
