The SRT Viper GTS-R tests at Virginia International Raceway
Earlier this month we brought you video of the Viper GTS-R testing at Carolina Motorsport Park, likely the preferred road course of SRT’s development partner, Riley Technologies.
This time around, the GTS-R is being wrung out at Virginia International Raceway, and while the video isn’t long, it succeeds in proving that the racing Viper does indeed look fast.
Unlike the road-going Viper, which will pack an 8.4-liter V-10 engine, the competition version will be restricted to just 8.0-liters. Neither SRT nor Riley Technologies is talking about horsepower numbers, but we suspect there’s plenty on tap to make the 2,500 pound car competitive.
Look for the Viper GTS-R to debut later this summer. A two-car effort is planned, and the driver lineup (so far, anyway) includes Marc Goossens, Dominik Farnbacher, Ryan Hunter-Reay and Kuno Wittmer.
