Cadillac To Return To Endurance Racing With New Prototype
Its been quite some time since Cadillac entered a top-tier endurance race. Try 14 years long.. But, two months from now, the automaker will put its all-new Daytona Prototype International race car up against the likes of Mazda and Nissan. They will compete head-to-head at the Rolex 24 at Daytona which is shaping up to be one of the most diverse American motor races in years. The car (officially called the DPi-V.R.), not only adheres to IMSA’s new DPi regulations, but is looking especially Cadillac-esque with its long and low design.
Who’s running this speedster? None other than Wayne Taylor Racing, the team that previously fielded the Corvette Daytona Prototype. The team’s manager, Wayne Taylor, has won the 24 Hours of Daytona twice, in 1996 and 2005. He’s since passed the wheel to his two sons, Ricky and Jordan.
