Many manufacturers put race cars on display in their booths at major auto shows. At the NAIAS this year, among other racing machinery in Cobo Hall, Infiniti had a Red Bull F1 car, Mazda had one of Patrick Dempsey’s RX-8 racers and Honda had one of Chip Ganassi’s Target sponsored IndyCars and both the current and upcoming Honda IndyCar engines. We’ll get to those in later posts. Surprisingly GM did not bring a representative model of their very successful Corvette factory racing team, nor one of their SCCA Camaros. No racing Chevys but there was a racing Cadillac, one of the the CTS-V Coupe racers that compete in the SCCA World Challenge series in the GT class with Andy Pilgrim and Johnny O’Connell behind the wheel. I really like the car’s livery. The graphics are blown up versions of the multicolored V badging. They work very well with the shape of the car, but then the badging was designed to work harmoniously with the art & science theme in the first place.
What folks are saying:
"...I've been over to Cars In Depth on many occasions. Barring the whole 3D thing which drives me up the wall (that's a personal thing, though), I like the content, the writing, and the simple formatting. You do a great job over there, and I am impressed."
