Cadillac car racers and enthusiasts are looking forward to the release of Cadillac DPi-V.R in the market and availability to take a glimpse on the wicked new prototype race car. Caddy gladly announced its return to the motorsports arena and endurance racing; a comeback appearance for Cadillac to showcase its new race car model after being gone for so long in the spotlight --- with its last during the Northstar LMP Auto at Le Mans in 2002.

Now, many have been asking if DPi-V.R gets to be seen anytime soon on the race tracks. Yes, the long wait is finally over. Caddy is back and gets its debut at IMSA's Rolex WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, which is set to happen during winter season or sometime in January. Wayne Taylor and Action Express get to be Cadillac's frontline racers: Wayne Taylor taking the one-car race, while Action Express taking the two-car race.

After his 2002 endurance race at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, Wayne Taylor is returning with his sons Jordan and Ricky and his co-driver back in 2002: Max Angelelli. Fans are also anticipating what Action Express has in store for everyone on the race track; the team is deemed to be a three-time champion in the fledgling run series under Prototype category, according to DISCOVER-USA.  

Cadillac's president, Johan de Nysschen, made a statement about the firm's comeback in the motorsports limelight. He said that Caddy could not be even prouder in its return to Prototype endurance car racing after its last appearance in 2002. Car buffs' comments are pouring in for anticipation on Cadillac DPi-V.R joining the championship. One fan even said that the competition is going to be as interesting as Pirelli World Challenge series, as seen on CARANDDRIVER's blog comments section.

So, brace yourselves because the coming WeatherTech race track is going to be a whole lot of fun as Caddy returns to heat up the runway.
