Cadillac Needs Space To Roll

I was just reading about a challenge issued by Cadillac to anyone who has the nerve to challenge them. They are willing to put their CTS Spec V up against any "factory" sport sedan on the Monticello Circuit in upstate NY. There isn't much about the rules other than it has to be stock and a similar type car...

I know my 330 would get its ass spanked, but I would be interested to see how an e92 M would fair or possibly a Panamera.

Anybody thinking about entering?

Here's a link to where I read about this challenge:

They had this challenge 6 months ago. Three race car drives in CTSV's beat every competitor and one kid in a 4 door e92 m3 came in 4th place and was offered a BMW course training package because he did so well.

The CTSV is the fastest track capable mass-production 4 door car that is available.

The Panamera knocked out the CTS-V at Nürburgring...

I didn't realize it happened 6 months ago

The benefit of awd. From a roll though i'm more than sure the V would overtake the panamera
