    Cadillac today announced the Cadillac V-Performance Academy driving experience at Spring Mountain Motor Resort and Country Club near Las Vegas, Nevada. 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.

    Cadillac is the only luxury automotive brand offering a two-day driver training with the purchase of a high-performance vehicle. Customers will register online for the experience after taking delivery of a 2017 V-Series model. The V-Performance Academy program may also be purchased as a stand-alone experience.

    “Cadillac is a brand for passionate people, by passionate people,” said Nathan Tan, associate director of Brand Partnerships and Experiences for Cadillac. “V-Series customers are in many ways nearest the core of the Cadillac brand, and we are proud to offer this valuable training with our thrilling products.”

    The V-Performance Academy includes:

    Ground transportation to and from Las Vegas McCarren International Airport — customers are responsible for airfare
    Two days of intensive driver training in the model of purchase for 2017 V-Series owners and the model of choice for stand-alone customers
    Two nights’ lodging in the Spring Mountain luxury condominiums
    Breakfast and lunch on both training days
    General admission access for one designated guest — add a driving guest for an additional fee
    On-site courtesy vehicles will be provided
    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.

    The development of the V-Performance Academy curriculum was overseen by V-Series engineers. The tailored driver training enables attendees to extract maximum performance from the V-Series vehicles.

    “The V-Series are the most-track capable Cadillac models ever, using exclusive technologies tuned by a select group of dedicated engineers,” said Brandon Vivian, Cadillac executive chief engineer. “These technologies, such as Magnetic Ride Control, Performance Traction Management software and the Performance Data Recorder, set the Cadillac ATS-V and Cadillac CTS-V apart from all other luxury cars and are the tools drivers will experience at the V-Performance Academy.”

    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, Spring Mountain Motor Resort and Country Club enables V-Performance Academy drivers to extract maximum performance from V-Series vehicles. Lodging is provided on the Spring Mountain premises, with loft-style suites complete with kitchenettes for comfort and ease. An 8,000-square foot clubhouse, pool, racquetball court, fitness facility and four-acre freshwater lake ensure time spent on and off the track is equally enjoyable.

    A good friend of mine instructed in a similar manner for Chrysler under the "SRT Expeience" or something like that. He cris-crossed the country for a few years doing it. He loved it but it took him from his family a lot.

      But will GM cover a blown engine under warranty if it happened on track?

        The school provides the cars. The owners don't drive their own cars on track.
        To the right of The Sheriff. Isn't everyone?

          Yes but with the below quote it seems like they're encouraging owners to take their cars to the track.

            Oli,

            Please, please, please buy a new CTS-V and invite me as your "driving guest"

            We saw the fleet of these there last year when we went for a VARA race.

            They had a 30 ft x 30 ft garage full of new tires stacked to the ceiling!

                  A Miata, of course. Miata is always the answer, amirite?
