    Cadillac Racing said they thought they would be good on the street circuit in Toronto and the first practice session seems to support that.
    Johnny O is fastest with a 1:11.586
    Andy is second with a 1:11.709
    The Viper of Wittmer is third at 1:11.731 - didnt' take Kuno long to get the GT3R Viper up to speed.
    Next is a Prosche GT3R of Tandy, then Palmer in an Audi.

    Next practice session is early afternoon. More then.

    Second practice. Looks like everyone got better with the others getting a little better than the CTS V.Rs.

    Tandy was fastest at 1:10.437 in the GT3 Porsche
    Palmer next in the Audi R8
    Sofronas third in another Audi R8
    Johnny O and Andy are 6th and 9th fastest in this session.

    Qualifying is set for 4:30 EDT today. More after that.

    As it turned out, the GT3 cars did very well in qualifying and the Cadillac Racing CTS V.Rs qualified 5th and 9th. A Porsche, Viper and a Ferrari are starting up front. Could be a long day for Cadillac Racing.

    Equalizing the competition in World Challenge finally made it hard on Cadillac Racing, it seems.
    World Challenge adjusts car weight, rev limiter values and/or restrictor size when needed to equalize the competition between the cars and teams.

    Checking the overall standings, I can see why Cadillac Racing was hit with restrictions. In the first 6 races, a CTS V.R finished first second or third with three wins, 2 seconds and 1 third. For the last 4 races, the restrictions on CTS V.R performance is obvious. The highest finishing CTS V.R was fourth, second, third and fifth.

    In race 9, Johnny got a great start and was in second by the first turn but was pushed back to third by the third turn with the Viper just blew past him. He mentioned that it's hard to set someone up for a pass if they pull away from you down the straights.

    Maybe the powers that be in WC will smile on Cadillac Racing and give them a little something back for the last 7 races.
