Earlier in April, SRT revealed its Viper GTS-R race car that is destined to return to the American Le Mans Series this year and now we know when.

Ryan Hunter-Reay confirmed that he’ll be part of the Petit Le Mans driver lineup for the new SRT Viper race car, and joins Kuno Wittmer, Dominik Farnbacher, and Marc Goossens as confirmed drivers for the team. Though SRT hasn’t confirmed which races the Viper will make an appearance at, it’s widely believed that the Viper will participate in several races before Petit.

Hunter-Reay, who is currently the IndyCar points leader, will focus on capturing the IndyCar championship before hopping into the SRT Viper. Thankfully the Petit Le Mans race occurs after the IndyCar season ends.
