If you’re a Dodge Viper fan, certainly you didn’t got too happy with the news that the champion GTLM Viper effort was folded two days after the United Sportscar Championship title. But don’t worry, the solution to not let these beasts without racing may be on the other side of the atlantic.
In a week when we saw some Vipers test at Daytona, in all the possible specs, Michel MacBurnie told Endurance-Info that there are interested teams in running the ex-GTLM Vipers in the European Le Mans Series GTE class. The idea was to not sell the cars, but then SRT gave the green light, that has at least two interested teams to negotiate.
And as there are interested parts in the Viper GTS-R, there are even more parts looking into the Viper GT3-R, as the FIA GT3 spec monster already made its name in North America and Europe itself, with victories in the Pirelli World Challenge and Dutch Supercar Challenge championships.
And talking about winning outfits, one of the tipped teams to get at least a Viper is Team Race Art, that already have a Viper GT3-R, and may be using to cars to jump into a Blancpain Endurance Series program.
