Following the examples of its German rivals, Cadillac announced the launch of a new special driving experience, called V-Performance Academy. Something like the M-Performance or AMG courses that we see in Europe and also in North America.

The two-day driver training program will be included in the purchase of any of Cadillac’s high-performance V-Series models: 2017 Cadillac ATS-V Sedan, 2017 ATS-V Coupe and 2017 Cadillac CTS-V sedan.

There are now two opportunities for enthusiasts to drive new V-Series models on a racetrack: the two-day V-Performance Academy driver training held exclusively at Spring Mountain and the single-day V-Performance Lab, which travels to different racetracks around the country. 

In 2016, the V-Performance Labs will be held at Lime Rock Park in Lakeville, Connecticut, and Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas.

Located 55 miles west of Las Vegas, Spring Mountain Motor Resort and Country Club boasts the longest road course in North America. With more than six miles of racetrack and 50 unique configurations.
