Cadillac Confirms Its Return To Le Mans With A Teaser Of Its Alleged LMDh Racer

Aug 24, 2021

Category: Rides

For those who aren’t aware, Cadillac has enjoyed an incredibly successful racing program in the WeatherTech DPi division, sweeping the IMSA championships in both 2017 and 2018, as well as winning the Daytona 24 outright from 2017-2020. So, while you may not know the luxury American marque for its prestigious motorsport pedigree, turns out, it’s actually quite an accomplished competitor.

All of which makes Cadillac’s confirmation that it’ll be returning to Le Mans in 2023 that much more exciting. And while the Wreath and Crest has only shared a single image of its alleged entry — the LMDh-V.R — we do know some of the players involved. As in past DPi cars, Cadillac will be working with Italian racing expert Dallara for the engineering of its platform and powertrain. Though the LMDh regulations require it to be based on a standardized chassis and a spec hybrid system, the V.R will get to use its own proprietary engine and bodywork. What’s more, Chip Ganassi Racing has rejoined the program alongside Action Express. Given the success that the team has enjoyed in the past, it’s bound to be a winning combination once again. You can catch Cadillac’s LMDh-V.R making its trackside debut at Daytona 24 in January 2023.
