After 11 years and 332 races in the Pirelli World Challenge, Cadillac Racing has withdrawn from the competition, effective immediately.

Since the team’s 2004 arrival with the first-gen CTS-V sedan, it has amassed 33 wins, 88 other podia, 25 pole positions and taken home five Drivers’ championships (one for Andy Pilgrim and four for Johnny O’Connell) and five Manufacturers’ crowns.

Global director of product strategy for Cadillac Rich Brekus said the team currently maintains a “regular and open” communication with World Challenge CEO Greg Gill, and hopes “to one day return to the Series in some form.”

Michael Cooper and co-pilot Jordan Taylor earned the first-ever SprintX Driver Championship honors this year, and Cooper ended Cadillac’s season in style by sweeping the doubleheader at Sonoma two weeks ago. Cooper and O’Connell finished second and sixth respectively in the drivers’ championship this year.
