Hello,
We are fresh back from another great Cadillac Challenge event. Big thanks goes out to Craig and his group @ www.cadillacrace.com for providing the competitors with a safe & fun platform to showcase the awesome performance of the V-Series cars. I know we are looking forward to the next event at Buttonwillow in July. Hope to see some of you new guys out at the track soon.

Looks like the recap is up on the site:

Round 5 – Willow Springs Intl’ Raceway Recap!

The Cadillac Challenge – Round 5 Willow Springs International Raceway

Rosamond, CA June 2nd, 2012. Welcome to the Wild Wild West. Willow Springs International Raceway, Home of the Fastest Track in the West Coast. Based on the average lap speed, by definition they are correct. What will that mean when the Cadillac Challenge presented by Toyo Tires rolls onto the grid? Surely the 4200 lbs luxury sedans would have to slow up a bit for some of highest speed turns the challenge has seen to date, right? Let’s find out....http://cadillacrace.com/2012/06/round-5-willow-springs-intl-raceway-recap/

Here are a couple of pics that taken out at the track:

Thanks for sharing the pics and video. Tracking my car at this event has been the best experience with my car so far. On this course, turn 9 was tricky, but the payoff after is about 1000 ft of straightaway..where you get to hear you car scream @ WOT going 120+ mph. What a rush!
