ORONTO, (July 18, 2014) – Cadillac Racing drivers Johnny O’Connell and Andy Pilgrim will start fifth and ninth respectively for tomorrow’s race one of two at the Pirelli World Challenge Series Honda Indy Toronto through the streets of Exhibition Place.

O’Connell (Flowery Branch, Ga.) who has three wins on street courses this year qualified his No. 3 Cadillac CTS.V.R fifth on the grid for tomorrow’s 50-minute race based upon a lap of 1:10.253. Teammate Pilgrim (Boca Raton, Fla.) who has three second place finishes in the four street races to date drove his No. 8 CTS.V.R to a ninth place grid position after posting a time of 1:10.538. The duo will have to work hard tomorrow when the 24 car GT field takes the standing start at 11:25 a.m. ET. Read More…

(PETALUMA, CA – August 19) Next weekend, in the backyard of TRG-AMR, the stage is set for Pirelli World Challenge drivers Drew Regitz and Mark Klenin as the series heads to Sonoma.
