The Jalopnik Vs GM CTS-V Challenge airs on Speed TV tonight at 9:30 PM EST.
Finally, here's what you've been waiting for: action photos and video from yesterday's Jalopnik Vs GM race. Maybe if I'd kept all four of the Evo's wheels on the road, I'd have been faster.
While I was putting practice laps in and Al was discussing the finer points of independent label hip hop distribution, Ray was going gaga for the helicopter filming on-track action. Expect more video soon.
Here's Cadillac's official video take on yesterday's Jalopnik Vs GM race. The real heroes here are the challengers who came out in their own vehicles and, in Michael Cooper's case, even outpaced the all-mighty CTS-V.
Here's the official former buff book editor-verified results from yesterday's Jalopnik Vs GM event, the awesomest marketing ploy we've ever taken part in.
It appears GM, even a just-emerged-from-bankruptcy GM, still has the power to beat a blogger. Our Wes Siler, in a $41,000 Mitsubishi EVO, has fallen to "Maximum" Bob Lutz driving a $60,000+ Cadillac CTS-V.
The lap board's updated here at the Jalopnik Vs GM CTS-V Challenge and Wes did — well, about what we expected. Take a look at the lap board below.
I never thought when I started here almost four years ago I'd see one of my writers facing up against GM's "Maximum" Bob Lutz. Yet, here we are — blog vs. Bob. And we've begun. Group 1 results below.
GM's "Maximum" Bob Lutz either mentally preparing himself or wondering where he left the car keys to his Cadillac CTS-V today at Monticello. The first shot of the Jalopnik Evo out on the track — below.
Jaguar PR just called saying they've withdrawn their pledge to let Wes race the XFR Thursday against GM's Bob Lutz in a Cadillac CTS-V. Apparently, not because they're afraid to lose, they're afraid the XFR just can't take it. Pussies.
