SEBRING, Fla. – Cadillac will serve as the title sponsor for the Cadillac Grand Prix of Sebring on Saturday, July 18 at Sebring Int’l Raceway in Florida.

The event will be the second race back for the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship following the WeatherTech 240 At Daytona on Saturday, July 4.

“High performance driving is part of Cadillac’s DNA. We have all missed racing and we’ve been eagerly awaiting the opportunity to see our DPi-V.R prototypes compete on the track again,” said Steve Carlisle, Cadillac president. “That’s why Cadillac is proud to support IMSA’s return to racing as the title sponsor of the July 18 race at Sebring, one of the world’s most iconic tracks.”

Prior to the race, the 2020 Cadillac CT5-V will serve as the official pace car. This marks the first pace car duties for the new compact luxury sedan, which went on sale earlier this year.

Cadillac Racing has had plenty of recent success on Florida tracks, winning two of the last three Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring races (2017, ’19) as well as four consecutive Rolex 24 At Daytona titles (2017-2020).

“Cadillac has been a Sebring and IMSA partner for years, and we’re grateful for their support of the Cadillac Grand Prix of Sebring,” said Wayne Estes, president and general manager of the Sebring International Raceway. “Adding this event to the season schedule is a tremendous benefit to Sebring and IMSA fans, and having never hosted an international touring series event in the summer at Sebring, this will be a new experience for all of us and one we are anxious to give to our fans and competitors.”
