A mid-season entry in the American Le Mans Series for 2012, the #91 Viper is sponsored by Forza Motorsport. In both of the races it has competed in the 2012 season, drivers Kuno Wittmer and Dominik Farnbacher have achieved top ten finishes. Each race provides the team with another chance to coordinate driver changes, increase the efficiency of pit stops, and to collect data. The Viper’s monster 8.4 liter V-10 is reduced to 8 liters by changing cylinder bore and stroke, and the car requires a restrictor on the engine’s intake to maintain parity within the GT class. The engine runs on E85 and carries 110 liters of fuel, almost double the capacity of its stock brethren. Meeting all the ALMS requirements and keeping the car as close to stock in appearance was no small feat. The team achieved a nearly identical twin to the road-going cousin after many digital iterations and the use of Computational Fluid Dynamics.
Sporting the Pennzoil livery--one of the most iconic brands in motoring--the #93 SRT Motorsports Viper GTS-R is a mid-season entry in the 2012 American Le Mans Series. Driven by Marc Goosens and Tommy Kendal--with IndyCar driver Ryan Hunter-Reay on deck for endurance races--the #93 certainly doesn’t lack for driving talent. This SRT factory-backed ride is one half of the long-awaited return of the Viper to ALMS racing. The Viper’s last factory race was way back in 2000. This new SRT Viper GTS-R is engineered for speed, reliability, and durability. Its primary focus is to dominate endurance races such as the Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta and the 24-hours of Le Mans in France.
