Here's a little more on this great news:

Cadillac Announces Two-Car CTS-V Factory Effort for 2004 SCCA Speed GT

.......

Pilgrim, who most recently drove a works Corvette in the American Le Mans Series, has run 22 World Challenge races and claims three victories in the series. Angelelli is new to the series, but will not be considered a rookie due to his extensive racing experience, including the 1992 Italian Formula 3 Championship and racing Ferrari, Panoz and, most recently, Cadillac sports racers.

The CTS-V race car will feature a 5.7L overhead valve V8 engine. It will produce more than 500 hp with a maximum rpm of 7600. Its top speed is estimated to be in excess of 165 mph, and the car, like every other in the SCCA SPEED World Challenge, will be shod with 18" Toyo Proxes RA-1 tires (275/35 front and 335/30 rear).

The SCCA SPEED World Challenge features two separate championships racing in separate 50-minute sprint races, a format perfectly suited for its title sponsor, SPEED Channel.

The SCCA SPEED GT Championship features production based, high-performance automobiles modified for racing with racing and aftermarket performance parts. Cars competing in the SCCA SPEED GT include the Audi RS 6, BMW M3, Chevrolet Corvette, Dodge Viper, Ford Mustang, Porsche 911 and Saleen Mustang. The SCCA SPEED Touring Car category includes smaller, lower horsepower cars. For more information, please visit www.world-challenge.com.
