    The Caddy has been racing successfully for a number of years, I have yet to see it confirmed in the BTCC though

    CC's going rather well people in BTCC you have to agree . Don't think people can call it a "old man's car" now .

    CC an old mans car?? Really? not heard that one, CC is a lovely bit of kit and most we see have professional males driving them 30-50

    Modded for the track they look great just out of the financial reach for the younger crowd but then they would go for a nice tight hot hatch for budget fun

    When I have mentioned my current liking of the CC to the younger GTI/GTD crowd have had odd looks and comments of "its just a Passat" not a fast coupe - at 40 years of age can see it is far more! and a sort of big Scirocco for somebody who needs space for a family (had many a MK2 scirocco GTX in my younger years). However I'm not a "professional" earner so they well could be out of reach for me for some time.
    The gen 1 models great amount of car for the cash now. In BTCC trim the CC's look brilliant.

    BRM have announced they will be running 4 CC's instead of 2 CC's and 2 Insignia's.

    Good news for the VW brand.

    Win number 2 for the CC in race 3 at snetterton for Aron Smith and a classy one at that considering all the talent behind him in the top 8 at the time!
