The Team Cadillac drivers have had to adjust their CTS-Vs to a SCCA mandated increased engine restriction since the last round at Toronto. The reduced horsepower of the Cadillac 6.2-liter engine has put an emphasis on handling around the 2.2-mile, 13-turn natural terrain Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.

Race 1 Results:

Team Cadillac took second (O'Connel), fifth (Pilgrim), and seventh (Jordan Taylor, a new face for me). The top seven were within ten seconds at the finish, eighth was almost a minute behind.

A Volvo S60 won. The other Volvo S60 came in fourth. Other competitors in the leading seven were Audi R8 LMS (James Sofronas) and Corvette (Mike Skeen), always among the leaders.

We Need a Chassis Upgrade for 2014

It looks like Team Volvo has found their niche: give them a throttle plate and make everybody run on the same Pirelli P Zero Racing Slick and P Zero Racing Rain tires and they seem to have the advantage. Whether the tires, the weather, the course, or the day make a difference, only time will tell. But this weekend's results tell us that we need to move forward from the chassis that hasn't changed since the 2009 model year. The new CTS platform and LT engine won't be used on the CTS-V at the beginning of the 2014 model year, so things may be rough until we get the chassis upgrades online.
