    Pics from Cadillac V-Performance Academy at Spring Mountain

    I attended the December 20-21 Cadillac V-Performance Academy at Spring Mountain and it was a blast! I highly recommend it! Here are some pics of some of the nice sights from Pahrump, NV!

    Thanks for posting. I'll probably attend sometime soon given i just got a 2017. I've done the BMW and Porsche buyers schools and race with NASA so any chance i get to have track time for free i'm there.
    Might be too basic for me but i'm sure it will be a blast regardless.

    It was a very fun experience with more than enough track time on day 2. They gave me a brand new CT6 3.0TT AWD when I arrived as part of the class, so my wife and I were able to hit Vegas on the first night we got there. The instructors are awesome and my class only had 5 students in it, so we got even MORE track time. The class is capable of having 12 students in it, but we got lucky being late December and not many people going to the middle of the desert during the cold months. It was pretty cold. I highly recommend this experience for any V-Series owner if you can get away from life for a couple days! You won't regret it!

    This looks great. Looking forward to it. Got my 2017 just before the holidays. About how long does it take for the packet to arrive?

    You have to sign up! Register here: Cadillac 2-Day

    Enter in your VIN info and register for a specific class date! Once you do that, they will contact you and get the ball rolling.

    I attended the V2 academy back in '14 and had a blast. They're great hosts with awesome staff and facilities. I may need a getaway this winter. For those considering it's a nice drive from Vegas, even though SM has nice housing available.

    Yes, you get a Cadillac jacket and a V hat. You also get a plaque in carbon fiber finish that shows you completed the program.

    They had a store where you can buy stuff, but it was all Corvette related from what I could tell at first glance. I posted pictures of the store that is also the welcome center when you arrive in.

    You use their car, which allows you to really beat on it!

    No but i'm going the following week. Offered the class to my wife since i have 2 race cars and the classroom stuff will be boring at best. She's not interested though and just wants to hang out by the pool all day. I sure hope they allow me to test the limits a bit, we'll see. Regardless it's a good excuse to get to Vegas for a few days.

    Just got back from the V performance academy and have to say it was a top notch event from picking my up at the airport in a private Escalade to the welcome center you get to pick out a new Cadillac to drive around while your there. Breakfast lunch & dinner was all included the condo was amazing sitting on the balcony watching the corvettes fly by & the class & instructors were all great and you get to record on the PDR all you want. There is even a professional photographer the taking pics 1/2 my class was media car & driver , motortrend etc... So looks like there will be some write ups on the event. Highly recommend to all owners you really get to learn and push the car.

    Great to hear the people enjoy the program offered. I'm looking to do this next month (May). I've driven on this track in my friend's Viper and the track / facilities are really nice.
