Cadillac Takes The Winning Title At The Rolex 24
Finishing the twenty-four-hour race for Cadillac at the Rolex 24 is the proud Ricky Taylor. Taylor made a move with just three laps of racing remaining to “finish the business” that his father started with Cadillac back in 2000 as the team won the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship 55th running of the Rolex 24 Hour at Daytona recently. The vehicle that won it all was the Cadillac DPi-V.R prototype. The Cadillac DPi-V.R prototypes were at the top of the timing sheet all through free practice making way for success. As the race progressed from early sunshine and 70 degrees Fahrenheit to rain and 45 degrees overnight, the Cadillac teams had to negotiate 52 other race cars on the track and Mother Nature. Just 20-minutes into the race, Ricky Taylor took the lead in the No. 10 Konica Minolta Cadillac. Ricky Taylor, driver, No. 10 Konica Minolta Cadillac DPi-V.R:
Ricky Taylor, Driver of the No. 10 Konica Minolta Cadillac Dpi-V.R: exclaimed, “It is unbelievable, I am still shaking. There are so many different story lines. The unfinished business of the first go around. Starting the season with a win. Cadillac’s fist win. Max has been a part of our family for years. We used to have class with Max the Axe. He would tell us about downforce and over taking. My pass today was just like Max. To win today was really cool. To win it with Jeff is surreal experience. The pass I was working on him we came to GT traffic and they didn’t look to good in Turn1. I thought about doing this for years and years. Drivers tend to release their hands a little in the break there and it opens up.” We are thrilled for the Cadillac brand and their ever so triumphant team and we could not be more proud than to represent such an exquisite brand such as Cadillac.
