There will be cars from out of state attending the event along with a wide variety of vendors showcasing their new products.
There will be a variety of Cadillac activities during this event. We will have a dyno onsite conducting an ALL CADILLAC DYNO SHOOTOUT!

Whoever’s Cadillac can make the most power on the dyno, they will get a featured story in Modified Luxury & Exotics Magazine, pictures, detailed story, website feature, etc. Please use the provided form to register for this activity.
We will have an ALL CADILLAC RUN GROUP for the event. This is an opportunity for Cadillac Owners to take their vehicles on a professionally prepped racetrack and enjoy some spirited driving on the Infield Road Course at California Speedway.

In addition to the infield racing experience, we will also have an AUTOCROSS TRACK setup to allow you to battle against the clock and challenge your driving skills.

WOOHOO! Coming from the heavy modding of BMW and Mercedes and currently still modding Mercedes, this is exciting! I currently attend a lot of the SoCal local Mercedes Benz shows and meets and help out where needed. I'm a member at MBWorld.org and myMBonline.com among others and excited to see Cadillac finally doing something!
My Escalade is fully loaded but stock and would like to see what more is out there specifically for my SUV.
This being said, can't wait for this show and see you guys there!
I can relate to Sandys post about the show and his concerns about it not showcasing "All" models of Cadillacs or at least not from the advertisement of the event would indicate, however I "don't" agree with him on the "Performance" aspect of it, "personally" I think Cadillac should be able to carry the banner of "both" flags, Performanc "and" Luxury!!! Maybe next year you guys can set something up over on the "East Coast" for those of us on this side of the US that are Cadillac lovers but don't have the means or the finances to make it out to Cali in time for this years event, thanks!!!
Depending on how well this year's event turns out - we'll all know about future shows. If all goes well, we'll likely see shows in at least Texas and Florida (I think). Hopefully word gets out enough about this event that a "next year" can happen...
Personally, I think Cadillac should have the same following as BMW does - and this can help make that happen. I'm going to do my best to make it to the show myself.. I won't be easy, though..
If you can, bring both of them! As mentioned before we have been working with the Cadillac LaSalle club in bringing out a lot of the classic Cadillac's to help bridge the gap. We are also designing a new flyer that isn't so performance oriented.
There have been a variety of vehicles that have already RSVP'd. You would certainly not be alone when it comes to the classics as we will have a really nice mix of Cadillac's scheduled to attend.
Please let us know if there are any questions.

I'm a fan of both...
I drive your run of the mill STS v8, but also own a '76 Eldorado Convertible
I think it would be a lot more fun to show up in the Eldorado...
but would I be the only one there without a 400+ hp car?
Update as of 5/22/08 -
Re: Cadillac Performance Experience
John Heinricy, father of the CTSV, will be at the Cadillac Performance Experience!!! Also there will now be a second 09MYCTS-V on the track. It is yet to be known if it will be the actual sub 8 minute 'Ring V but we look forward to having them at the event. There will be some very cool new opportunities at the event. We look forward to seeing everyone there.
This should be fun. Just a word of advice for those of you that have never been to AAA Calif motor speedway it gets HOT! in the Summer. Make sure you stay hydrated. I can't tell which configuration they are going to run but it looks like they are not using turn 1 into the infield? That is the configuration when we run our motorcycles on when we are out there. Either way the track is a blast to use and lots of run off. Now if I can just get the V up to 170mph like my bike can and dive down off of the banking into the infield.
Cadillac Performance Experience Update -
As the event quickly approaches us we thought we would share with everyone the event layout & map. Please let us know if there are any questions. An event schedule will follow shortly.
If you havent registered yet, please do so as we need an accurate headcount. This will help Cadillac justify their involvement in a program like this.
