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.”
Montreal native Wittmer has chalked up three podium finishes out of six starts so far in the IMSA Tudor United SportsCar Championship series in 2014. This weekend’s double-header will be his first appearance in the Pirelli World Challenge since 2010.
The race will air on television on NBC Sport Network on August 10 at 1:30 p.m. EST. Join with us at Corwin Dodge at we cheer SRT Motorsports and Kumo Wittmer on to victory.
