Sure, most of the United States is being hit with sub freezing temps and several race tracks are covered in snow and ice. But, in Daytona the TUDOR Championship is on track for the #Roar24 test days!
When the 2014 season ended we did not know if there would be a Viper on track in North America for 2015. There is good news and a little bad on this front. The SRT Factory GTLM cars are done for now. With the bad news out of the way, let’s get to the good stuff!
Viper Exchange with primary sponsor TI Automotive, will have two cars running this year. The #33 car will be piloted by Jeroen Bleekemolen and Ben Keating for the full season. A second car will join the #33 at the TEQUILA PATRÓN NORTH AMERICAN ENDURANCE CUP events. The Endurance Cup will be contested over four events including The 24 Hours of Daytona, 12 Hours of Sebring, 6 Hours of Watkins Glen and Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta to wrap up the 2015 season.
Dominik Farnbacher, Kuno Wittmer, and Marc Goossens will all be joining Viper Exchange for the Roar Before the 24 this weekend and it appears they will also be mixed into the driver lineup for the 24 Hours of Daytona. Sebastiaan Bleekemolen, Cameron Lawrence and Al Carter will also be on hand for the ROAR and could see seat time throughout the season as well. Early reports are also pointing to most of the #RileyTechno Viper crew still being on board and looking forward to leading the charge in the GT Daytona class.
Vipers are on track and that is a very good thing! As soon as we have information regarding lap times, finalized driver lineups and anything else relating to Mopar in Motorsport, you will be able to find it right here!
