SRT® Viper GTS-Rs complete first 12 Hours of Sebring.




03/19/2013

Last year, the American Le Mans Series (ALMS) welcomed the SRT® Viper GTS-R to competition midway through the season. With just four races to prepare for a full year of competition, the pair of SRT Viper GTS-Rs are now competing for the championship in the GT class.

A dedicated group of Viper faithful joined SRT at the 12-hour race in Sebring, Florida. Those joining SRT at the race were welcomed by a plethora of VIP experiences over the weekend. Ticket packages purchased through driveSRT.com entitled guests to VIP parking within SRT Car Corrals, which offer a secure area convenient to trackside happenings. Car corrals also afford the opportunity for owners to display their vehicles for race attendees to appreciate. Attendees also had the opportunity to take their personal car on the track for a lap on the historic Sebring International Raceway.

Guests enjoyed all-access to the SRT Motorsports hospitality center, with excellent views of the action on track. A racing simulator inside gives participants the chance to drive a digital version of the track they’re attending. Taking a break to experience the realistic-simulator serves as a great way for fans to unwind during a long day at the track.

SRT Motorsports drivers and executives stopped by throughout the weekend at the paddock, and hospitality center to meet and mingle with fans. This level of accessibility can only be had by purchasing ticket packages at driveSRT.com.

Overall, the team’s confidence and capability has improved since last season. This is immediately evident in the improved on-track performance. The No. 91 took an early lead and stayed out front for much of the race.

“We’re actually overtaking cars and the last couple of races they were overtaking us,” said Dominic Farnbacher, SRT Viper GTS-R driver. “Now, we’ve turned the whole thing around. It actually feels very good. A big thanks to my team. They were working through the winter non-stop on the car and it has really paid off.”

Teammates in the No. 93 weren’t quite as successful, with an early mechanical failure forcing the car off the track for repairs that would put the car in a position from which it couldn’t recover.

“The No. 93 car had a problem with the drive pins failing, so we had to put on a new upright,” said Gary Johnson, Road Racing manager, SRT Motorsports. A short repair on pit lane, and the No. 93 was back on track. However, the misfortune resulted in the car falling several laps behind the leader. Despite the setback, the No. 93 returned to the track to fight for important series points.

In the end, the SRT Motorsports team’s first trip to Sebring was fairly successful. With nine races left in the 2013 ALMS season, the season is still young. For more a closer look at the race results, visit SRTmotorsports.com.
