    Rolex 24 Cadillac Paddock?

    Anyone going to the Rolex 24 this weekend? Parking in the Cadillac Paddock? I am so looking forward to being with our brethren and seeing all the different V models who park there (V cars only). Should be a great race with Cadillac racing this year.

    I will be in the V corral and paddock on Saturday morning.

    Looking forward to seeing Cadillac getting back into racing, and also seeing the Vs in the corral!!

    Daytona International Speedway. Google "daytona continental 24 hours" and "rolex daytona 24 hours".

    Find some of the day and night YouTubes. It's one long-ass road race - not a NASCAR oval - the Daytona tri-oval plus the entire infield switchbacks/chicanes road course. Non-stop except for driver, gas, tires, brake changes.

    Live report. At 7:13 Cadillac is 1 2 3! And the Cadillac corral is worth every penny

    Didn't Cadillac win the overall trophy? What about Ford in the GT class? Ferrari suffered mechanically...........

    Cadillac 1 & 2.

    GTLM: Ford, New Porsche, Ferrari. What an amazing finish.

    To have such a wild finish, let alone after 24 hours. Truly amazing! Watching the driver's, their concentration, they are fantastic.

    Was a great event Cadillac does a great job. Just got back myself.
    Saint Petersburg World Challenge race is next. If you own a V, you'll get the email. Its a great 3 day event. Lots of racing to see. More interaction with Cadillac at this one. Get to take your car on the course for a couple of laps (not really at speed, buuuuuuuttttttt).

    Which V was yours in the corral? I had the PGM Vagon. There were two OBM Vagon, one red and one black.

    I am one of the OBM Vagons, with the Velgen wheels. Now that I think about it, was that you, tinman, that I chatted with? Our cars may have been backed up to each other.

    Cadillac wins the 24 Hours of Daytona!!!!! Pretty impressive for a rookie car.

    The suite was very nice, but it got REALLY cold outside once the sun got covered and it started raining.

    Here are some photos of the corral and the cars on the grid (I'll make a separate post as well).
