Road&Track recently attended the Cadillac V-Series Performance Lab Event, an invite-only event at the Circuit of The Americas down in Texas. Attendees are treated to a breakfast, some go-fast driving instruction, then a few laps in the 2016 CTS-V and ATS-V, topped off with some autocross and drag racing action. Not a bad way to spend a track day if you ask us, not to mention the fact that it was all for free.
While the event was aimed at potential CTS-V buyers, the article notes that it was still a great time with relatively little sales-pitchy jargon. Beyond the two laps, autocross-ing in the ATS-V, and drag racing in the CTS-V, you’ll be given a USB key which has a record of your lapping sessions that was captured by the Performance Data Recorders that are available on the Corvette, ATS-V, and CTS-V. If you’re ever lucky enough to get a letter in the mail from Cadillac, which is the equivalent to finding a golden ticket after opening up a chocolate bar, you should know that you’ll have the option to do more than the two on-track sessions by paying a $695 fee and upgrading to the full-day program, which unfortunately was sold out.
