The 24 Hours of Le Mans is one of the most prestigious races in the world, up there with the Indianapolis 500 and the Monaco Grand Prix, which together make up the unofficial Triple Crown of Motorsport.

As such, Le Mans deserves prestigious racers, which is why we’re excited to hear the Dodge Viper may be returning to the endurance challenge despite initial difficulties.

The new Viper GTS-R had been pulled out of Le Mans back in March and withdrawn from the US series in October, but the Riley Technologies racing outfit didn’t back down. With or without factory support, it has made its goal clear: to bring the Viper back to the competition and take the crown once again.

We’ve got to say we stand behind them at Corwin Dodge. Riley Tech won both the drivers’ and teams’ titles in the United SportsCar Championship last season—it would be a shame not to see them compete again this year.

SRT Motorsports Heads to Canada for Toronto Pirelli World Challenge

This weekend, July 19 and 20, SRT Motorsports will take on the Toronto Pirelli World Challenge in a surprise entry. Kumo Wittmer will drive in the all-new No. 92 Dodge Viper SRT GT3-R.

“It’s going to be a lot of fun to have Kumo step into the Pirelli World Challenge and test his skills in the Viper GT3-R against the top class in the series,” said Ralph Gilles, CEO of SRT Motorsports, Chrysler Group LLC, in a statement. “This is a test Viper that Riley Technologies prepared and we see this race as an opportunity to showcase our customer program. We’ve had success in the series with Dan Knox taking the Viper to the winner’s circle during the Detroit race weekend and we want to continue building momentum with our Viper GT3-R program.”
