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The new Viper GTS-R had been pulled out of Le Mans back in March and withdrawn from the US series in October, but the Riley Technologies racing outfit didn’t back down.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.
