At the recent Pirelli World Challenge race at Belle Isle in Detroit, Cadillac Racing finished strong. Over the two-day racing event, Cadillac driving Johnny O’Connell finished at the top of the podium for both races, with teammate Andy Pilgrim joining him in second place for the second race.
“Wow what a weekend!” O’Connell exclaimed, in a statement. “One of the crew joked they should change the name to O’Connell Island. I don’t know about that, maybe there is an Irishman buried out here somewhere who smiles on me. I got another great start…A great weekend for everyone at Cadillac to win the home race in the shadow of the GM headquarters with so many Cadillac fans and employees on hand to share in the celebration.”
Footage from the Cadillac Grand Prix of Belle Isle race weekend will be aired on the NBC Sports Network on Sunday, June 15 at 2:30 pm EST. The Cadillac Racing team will take on the next challenge at Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin for another double-header June 19 through the 21.
