The Cadillacs didn't look too competitive today. I felt bad for Skeen in the Vette. He and the Porsche were running #2 and #1, respectively as they caught traffic on the last lap. The Porsche got around a spun car and the Vette nailed him.

On the restart, O'Connell jumped up to 4th on great positioning. But, almost immediately, he fell back to 5th as a Porsche(I believe) outbraked him and got a spot back. From there, both him and Pilgrim were just holding on. After Skeen in the Vette hit the spun car, I was watching a little Volvo S60 hounding O'Connell trying to get his spot. He held him off but only because the Volvo is underpowered.

But it is just the first race and adjustments will be made by Cadillac and by the sanctioning bodies to get them more up to speed...

In '04, the Vs were monsters right out the box and they had to be reigned in a bit. So things will get better...

Absolutley correct. P&M/Katech have a treasure chest of WC experience and synergy coming from the numerous years the Vettes took top winnings. Did anyone know if LG Motorsports is running in this series?

Watching. They are giving glowing words about Cadillac and the V-series right now.

Thanks for the pix and the link.

race was good, easy to get access to watching it as well, not a huge pain in the ass to find a way to watch like ALMS!

Waiting for standings to post up on WC site. My amateur assessment along with a difficult streaming presentation is the Viper threw a deep turn-one cheap shot on the race start wrinkling up some Cadillac sheet metal, Vdub climbs wall of tires, Skeen in C6 looks good, V's run strong together near 6th place mid race, sportscasters have an epic interview with a Cadillac Racing official as race goes on, C6 leaves race with what looks like a rear cradle failure dog-tracking badly, Pobst suffers a disabling crash in Volvo near end, yellow Porsche passes blue Porsche near last 5 laps for a win. Hopefully at least a top 5 for Johnny or Andy.
Bottom line: Cadillac CTS-V's were strong and sounded absolutely incredible in a field of cars that mostly sounded like buzzing bees. An honorable mention to the evil sounding Mustang and of course the C6's.

The above is just my view and may not be entirely accurate as I was interrupted many times while watching.

Yeah, that was pretty much it, Nutz. Very enjoyable to watch. Can't wait to do it again, especially since the live races are to be streamed.
