General Motors (http://www.autoblog.com/gm) has added another high-speed education course to the curriculum at the Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch outside of Las Vegas, Nevada. The desert track already hosts the Ron Fellows Performance Driving School (http://www.autoblog.com/2011/05/02/back-to-school-learning-the-zr1-at-the-ron-fellows-performance/) with Chevrolet Corvettes (http://autoblog.com/chevrolet/corvette), including the ZR1 (http://www.autoblog.com/tag/zr1), and they've just added the Cadillac (http://autoblog.com/cadillac) V-Series Academy.

Open now, the one- and two-day performance driving school teaches "the finer points of high performance driving" using the 556-horspower instructional aids known as the CTS-V (http://autoblog.com/cadillac/cts-v) sedan, coupe and wagon. This is different than than using the CTS-V at the Monticello Motor Club on the east coast - that's part of a sponsorship deal that Cadillac has with the track. The driving course at the Motorsports Ranch is its own program that was developed by Fellows, and we have no reason to think the Cadillac edition won't be just as thorough and enjoyable as the one with Corvettes.

Unlike the 'Vette edition, however, it doesn't appear that you get an invitation to the program if you buy a CTS-V model. Classes are capped at 12 participants and run $1,295 for a single day, $2,295 for two days. There are a video and a press release below (http://www.cadillacforums.com/2013/01/31/cadillac-v-series-academy-comes-to-las-vegas-w-video/#continued) with more info.Continue reading Cadillac V-Series Academy comes to Las Vegas [w/video] (http://www.autoblog.com/2013/01/31/cadillac-v-series-academy-comes-to-las-vegas-w-video/)
