GM gives a glimpse at the Cadillac CTS-V Challenge with a quick tour of the Monticello race track

One of the most-eagerly anticipated races today is one that doesn’t involve sponsorships, championship points, trophies – just bragging rights.

We’re talking about the Cadillac CTS-V Challenge, the brainchild of GM head honcho Bob Lutz. For this particular event, Lutz challenged a group of auto journalists and rivate owners to bring their production cars to go up against his Cadillac CTS-V at the Monticello Motor Club in New York.

Apart from the so-called ‘bragging rights’, we really don’t know what Lutz will get out of this, especially if his car – the CTS-V – loses out to rival vehicles.

Then again, it does make for a pretty interesting race. The rules are still murky but we’re hoping that bumping and grinding are perfectly legal.
In any case, GM gave us a quick tour of the Monticello track, the site of what promises to be a wildly entertaining race.

bob lutz had a time of 2.56.3

a guy in an m3 had a time of 2.50.4
but since there were 7 CTS-V competing by different drivers 3 cts-v got a time faster than the m3

wow I thought onee car of the same model allowed and only lutz was driving the CTS-V

They even had a mysterious "stig" driver drive the CTS-V

wow at least the m3 beat lutz car
