Last month Dodge revealed the new Viper SRT GTS-R wrapped in a retro-inspired red racing livery, celebrating the rebranding of the car to Dodge. This past weekend we had for first chance to see the race car in the flesh at Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen in New York.

Looking splendid in their classic red livery with white racing stripes, reminiscent of the first racing Vipers, Dodge Viper SRT GTS-R race cars scored two podium finishes, marking the return of the Viper as a Dodge in style.

No. 91 Dodge Viper SRT GTS-R driver Marc Goossens caused a lot of trouble for the race winner Antonio Garcia throughout the race and crossed the finish line only .185 of a second behind. No. 93 SRT GTS-R, with Jonathan Bomarito at the wheel crossed two seconds later for a third-place.

Ralph Gilles, president and CEO of SRT Motorsports:  “It was an excellent race for us. The vehicle demonstrated winning capability throughout the whole race and we found our groove. It seemed like at the back end of the stints our tires would come in and the cars would really grip and be consistent. Traffic was a challenge. The guys did a nice job racing through a lot of back markers. It was a very exciting race to watch, but it was bittersweet. We know that with couple more laps we could have had the win. We finished with less than half a car length between P1 and P2, but I couldn’t think of a better way to run today going from P5 and P6 to where we finished. I’m really proud of this team and how far we’ve come in the last few months.”
