TGR Staff

Cadillac, a brand known for success and performance both on and off the racetrack, will serve as the title sponsor for the Cadillac Grand Prix of Sebring on Saturday, July 18 at Sebring International Raceway in Florida. The event will be the second race back for the 2020 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship series, following the WeatherTech 240 At Daytona on Saturday, July 4.

High-performance driving is part of Cadillac’s DNA. We have all missed racing and we’ve been eagerly awaiting the opportunity to see our DPi-V.R prototypes compete on the track again That’s why Cadillac is proud to support IMSA’s return to racing as the title sponsor of the July 18 race at Sebring, one of the world’s most iconic tracks.
