Cadillac is returning to the 24 Hours of Le Mans in June with three of the newly named Cadillac V-Series.Rs to compete for the overall win in the Hypercar class.

The three Cadillac V-Series.R race cars made their competition debut on January 28-29 in the 61st Rolex 24 At Daytona, with the No. 01 Cadillac earning a podium finish. The No. 02 placed fourth, and the No. 31 Whelen Engineering Cadillac V-Series.R finished fifth. Now, they will join other competitors in the Hypercar class with revised car numbers for the 24 Hours of Le Mans and contest for the overall win.


The No. 2 Cadillac V-Series.R received an automatic entry based on its full-season participation in the FIA World Endurance Championship. Earl Bamber, Alex Lynn, and Richard Westbrook will be the drivers of this car. The No. 3 car is a full-season IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship entrant, where it races as the No. 01. Sebastien Bourdais, Renger van der Zande, and Scott Dixon will be the drivers for this car. Finally, the No. 311 car will be driven by Pip Derani, Alexander Sims, and Jack Aitken. This car is a full-season IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship entrant as well.

The Cadillac V-Series.R was codeveloped by Cadillac Design, Cadillac Racing, and chassis constructor Dallara. The design was informed by the Project GTP Hypercar that was unveiled in June 2022. The race car incorporated distinctive Cadillac design elements like vertical lighting and floating blades. The Hypercars feature an all-new Cadillac 5.5L DOHC V8 engine developed by GM’s Performance and Racing Propulsion team based in Pontiac, Michigan. The cars began on-track development in July 2022 and logged over 12,400 miles on racetracks in the U.S., leading into the 2023 Rolex 24 At Daytona.

This isn’t the first time that an American automaker sent several cars to France to take the overall win in the greatest endurance race on the planet. Ford also did it with the GT40 back in 1967.

Zac's love for cars started at a young age, after seeing the popular Eleanor from Gone In 60 Seconds. From there, fascination and enthusiasm blossomed and to this day the Ford Mustang remains a favorite. His first job started out detailing cars, but also provided the opportunity to work on restoration including an 1968 Ford Mustang, Pontiac Firebird, and a C3 Corvette, though he left that job before further work and experience could be had. From there, he was a detailer at a car dealership before quitting that job to try and finish college.

Much of his free time while studying was spent watching YouTube videos regarding new cars, or off-roading. 4WD247 is a personal favorite channel which rekindled a dying flame in car enthusiasm, now tailored towards trucks and SUVs and the fun that can be had building up an overlanding rig, and going on adventures, though, that chapter remains unwritten for the time being.
