What do you do if you’re a bored, successful race driver for an equally successful racing team in between races? You could go fly-fishing, maybe, or you could start practicing early for the next SCCA Pro Racing World Challenge behind the wheel of the Cadillac CTS-V coupe race car.

That’s what Johnny O’Connell and Andy Pilgrim, mounting their camera low in the front and taking us for a spin round Utah’s Miller Motorsports Park while they narrate the ins and outs of this tricky track. Perfect for aspiring Gran Turismo obsessives! It’s cold as hell, apparently, but they’re keeping warm inside their Nomex race suits. And that 535-horsepower supercharged 6.2-liter V8 should heat things up a bit.

The Grand Prix of Utah just wrapped up this past weekend; Andy and Johnny attack Mosport on May 20th at 3pm. For more information, check the Speed World Challenge website.
