SRT Viper GTS-R Wins Its First ALMS Race

SRT Viper has won its first race since returning to the American Le Mans Series (ALMS) last weekend, when the No.91 SRT Viper GTS-R driven by Marc Goossens and Dominik Farnbacher took the checkered flag at Road America. The win also marked the brand’s first motorsport victory since 2000.

The No.91 SRT Viper qualified second in the GT Class, behind the No.93 Viper driven by Bomarito and Wittmer, and managed to take the lead and win the race with just 0.36 seconds over their rivals from Chevrolet, who are racing Corvette C6 ZR1s. The win caused sensation in the SRT Viper pit.

“It’s unbelievable, the first win for the Viper in quite a while,” said Farnbacher. “It was a nail biter. I think we made it to the finish line with the last drop of fuel. If you look at all those faces (SRT team), they’re almost crying, everybody’s crying. It’s so emotional for us. I’m just speechless at the moment.”

SRT Motorsports returned to the American Le Mans Series last year.
