2011 Viper Record Tour to Prove SRT-10 ACR Once Again
Two months ago, a production version of the Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR (American Club Racer) made history at the Miller Motorsports Park, in the hands of Kuno Wittmer. The road racer broke the 2-minute mark for the first time in a production car on the 3.048-mile Outer Course configuration. In addition, the Viper also set a speed record back in 2008 on the famous Nurburgring track in Germany.
The 2011 Viper Record Tour will feature stops at the Monticello Motor Club, Sebring International Raceway, New Jersey Motorsports Park, and even the Nürburgring Nordschleife where Dodge hopes it will break the Viper’s own 7:22.1 lap time.
The automaker has yet to announce who will be the combatant to sit behind the wheel and wrestle this manly car on all these circuits, but it’s anticipated that Wittmer will make a comeback.
"With the all-new Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR, SRT has taken the ultimate American sports car and injected it with an extra dose of racing DNA," said Mike Accavitti, Director - Dodge Brand and SRT Global Marketing and Communications, Chrysler LLC. "With the Viper SRT10 as the starting point, SRT engineered a combination of reduced weight, race-tuned suspension and aerodynamic improvements to create the ultimate Viper for the street and track."
