Even if you’re a die-hard Porsche driver of a fan of Corvette Racing, there’s no denying the return of the Viper to sports car racing is a good thing.
After the surprise announcement at the car’s debut at the NY Auto Show earlier this year that the new SRT Viper would compete in the American Le Mans Series, its long awaited debut is upon us.
Joining the ALMS race at Mid-Ohio today is a two car Viper team. Not expected to compete for the lead in their first race, the two cars placed 10th and 13th in qualifying, a respectable three seconds off the pace of the leaders.
Watch the Viper’s return to racing today on ABC at 2 p.m. EST with online coverage at starting at 12:45 at alms.com.
