07.28.2015 – Cadillac Racing drivers Johnny O’Connell and Andy Pilgrim are ready to run their Cadillac ATS-V.R race cars at the Pirelli World Challenge race weekend at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio July 31 – Aug. 2.
The all-new for 2015 Cadillac ATS-V.R will run the 2.4-mile, 15-turn Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course located 40 minutes north of Columbus for the time. O’Connell (Flowery Branch, Ga.) and Pilgrim (Boca Raton, Fla.) are looking forward to running the new car at a real drivers track this weekend. The last time the team won at Mid-Ohio was when O’Connell stood on the top step in 2011.
“I’m hopeful that a new Cadillac ATS-V.R will be a bit more in the hunt at Mid-Ohio,” O’Connell said. “I’m especially looking forward to it, as the car that caught fire at Barber is finally back together and ready to race. I really do like the feel of that car. The team has done a great job getting it back together. Appropriately it’s chassis number 003, so I’m confident she will be lucky, this time around. The series does all that they can to make every type of car equal. Every team and car this year has shown to be so competitive.”
MILFORD, Mich. – 07.24.2015 – Chevy, Buick, GMC and Cadillac will offer 22 different active safety technologies across their 2016 model year U.S. lineups, ranging from driver alerts to those that automatically intervene and assist the driver in critical situations.
Safety engineers will develop and test these and other safety technologies for products around the world at GM’s new, 52-acre Active Safety Test Area at its Milford Proving Ground near Detroit. The $14 million facility officially opened Friday.
“Our comprehensive safety strategy of helping customers before, during and after a crash continues,” said Jeff Boyer, vice president of GM Global Vehicle Safety. “GM historically has been a leader in the development and testing of safety technologies, and applying our deep knowledge and expertise to prevent crashes from happening in the first place.”
