In advance of Saturday’s Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring, the season-opening event of the 2013 American Le Mans Series (ALMS) presented by Tequila Patron, the SRT Viper GTS-R will be featured in a one-hour documentary entitled, “SRT Viper: Soul Survivor,” airing on Speed TV this Friday.
The behind the scenes television feature follows SRT Viper events during the past year, beginning with its unveiling at the New York International Auto Show last April, as well as events at Conner Avenue Assembly Plant, Barrett-Jackson auctions and several ALMS races where the SRT Motorsports team and two Viper GTS-Rs prepared for their historic return to full-time road racing in 2013.
The documentary takes an in-depth look at the rebirth of the GTS-R race car with unprecedented all-access coverage of SRT and Riley Technologies as the team prepares for its historic return to the race track.
The Viper’s successful racing heritage began in 1996 with its first racing entry, the original GTS-R, which earned five international GT championships and the 1997 to 1999 FIA GT championships in addition to the three consecutive one-two finishes at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in the GTS class.
The premier of “SRT Viper: Soul Survivor” will air on Speed TV, at 8 p.m. Friday March 15 Eastern with an encore presentation set for March 15 at 11 p.m. Eastern time.
