SRT Viper GTS-R Confirmed for 24 Hours of Le Mans

Two factory backed SRT Viper GTS-Rs will be competing at this year’s 24 hours of Le Mans, marking the return of the brand to the iconic French race.

The Petit Le Mans road race in America last year heralded the car’s return to racing, and now the brand will head back to France for 24 hours of Le Mans, hoping to get back to its past glory. Between 1998 and 2000, the Viper team finished first and second in GTS class competition.

The cars are the product of a partnership with Riley Technologies, and ran four races last year for testing and tweaking purposes, preparing for a full 2013 schedule in the GT class in the American Le Mans Series.

The 2013 24 Hours of Le Mans will take place on June 22 to 23.
