SRT Motorsports' official Le Mans offensive is expected to include Tommy Kendall, Marc Goossens, Kuno Wittmer, Dominik Farnbacher and Jonathan Bomarito. As for the rest of the drivers, their names will be announced closer to the race.

There are even more plans for this year, as it will also take place in the complete American Le Mans Series (ALMS)., which debuts on March 16 at Sebring.

We'll remind you that the Viper is no stranger to owning the track at Le Mans, with the vehicle having taken both first and second place in the GTS class from 1998 to 2000.

"Historically the Viper GTS-R has enjoyed great success at Le Mans, so we couldn’t be more excited and proud to accept the challenge to return to France and continue composing the next chapter in the history of Viper racing at such an historic venue,” SRT CEO Ralph Gilles said.
