So it went like this: Motor Trend conducted a track test between the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1
and the SRT Viper
GTS at Mazda
Raceway Laguna Seca a few months ago. With pro racer Randy Pobst behind at the wheel, the ZR1 took top honors and set a new lap record for production cars at the famed Californian racetrack. That wasn’t good news for SRT
, and brand chief Ralph Gilles would have none of it. Now Chrysler
's performance division has responded with the Viper TA.
