SRT Confirms GTS-R to Debut at Mid-Ohio as Viper Gets its Stripes On


The American Le Mans Series is about to get a whole lot of Viper. Check it out in the new livery.

If you've been looking for a chance to see the new SRT Viper GTS-R out on the race track, you'll have that chance on August 2-4 when the new serpentine racing beast makes its debut at the American Le Mans Series race at Mid-Ohio Raceway. That's where, as Chrysler has just confirmed, the race-spec Viper will undertake its first race. If your plans, however, don't include a trip to Lexington this summer, you can scope out the GTS-R undergoing testing in the video clip below.

As you may recall, the GTS-R is the racing version of the latest Viper, now under the stand-alone SRT brand. While the road-going Viper packs an 8.4-liter V10, the competition model actually goes with a (relatively and slightly) smaller 8.0-liter unit, due primarily to race regulations.

SRT just released a solitary photo of the Viper GTS-R in its full competition livery, but if racing isn't your scene, it has also shown us for the first time the road-going model with twin stripes - a color scheme that has been central to the Viper's style since first-generation model debuted back in the early '90s. (Just for your enjoyment, we've also included a few earlier shots of the Vipers in both specs lapping the circuit in tandem.)
