2011 Dodge Viper Cup Series Calendar Announced
“The first season of Dodge Viper Cup series was simply awesome and a great learning experience,” said Ralph Gilles, President and CEO of Dodge Car Brand. “We’re going to keep building on that momentum in 2011 with an expanded contingency program, a reduction in entry fees and the continuation of our successful celebrity driver and charity payout programs to once again generate lots of serious excitement for all Viper enthusiasts.”
The specially-tuned Viper is powered by a 8.4l V10, developing 640 hp, 40 hp more than the regular production version. Of course, there are several differences as compared to the production versions, including the suspension which has also been modified and upgraded specifically for on-track usage. The weight has been reduced by 160 pounds, while additional aerodynamic upgrades improve downforce.

May 13-15 at Sebring International Raceway, Sebring, Fla.
