Johnny O'Connell won both races at Detroit's Belle Isle.
“Last year I remember a Cadillac fan at our last race of the season saying they had their eye on the 2012 championship and that they were going to win it,” said Dave Drimmie, VP, Marketing and Communications, WC Vision. “Corvette fans have won the award the last two seasons, but this year the support of the Cadillac fans has been tremendous and they have already mathematically clinched the championship for 2012.”
A Manufacturers’ Fan Championship victory is awarded at all eight Pirelli World Challenge Championships race weekends during the season, with the win going to the fans that demonstrate the strongest support trackside, traditionally in the form of a car corral.
Cadillac enthusiasts have certainly had a lot to cheer about this season with O’Connell and Pilgrim first and second in the GT Drivers’ Championships and Cadillac in the lead for the Manufacturers’ Championship.
