The Viper was the first of the 'new age' front-engined rear wheel drive GT cars. It sparked renewed interest in top flight GT racing.

But...

Dodge didn't homologate the Viper Competition Coupe for the 24 Hours of Le Mans or the American Le Mans Series.

Dodge Viper Competition Coupe (http://www.seriouswheels.com/top-2003-Dodge-Viper-Competition-Coupe.htm)

The Competition Coupe does race in the Speed World Challenge where Tommy Archer won the Drivers' Championship last year in a Viper Competition Coupe. Dodge has revised the Competion Coupe for 2005.

Dodge should sell the new SRT10 Coupe and support teams in racing.

Vipers were a dominant force several years ago...

Olivier Beretta was one of the drivers of the winning Viper GTS-R (GTS class) in the 2000 12 Hours of Sebring.

Road-going Viper for comparison

The 1999-2002 Viper GTS was available with an ACR (American Club Racer) option that included the following:

(from allpar.com)

- Smoother intake hoses and a K&N air filter element increased air flow to add 10 horsepower (460 instead of 450)

- 60 pounds were cut by removing the audio system, air conditioning, and fog lights (brake cooling ducts can be put into the openings)

- Suspension components have been replaced by GTS-R racing units with Meritor springs. Michelin Pilot Sport high-performance radials (275/35ZR18 front, 335/30ZR18 rear) mount on one-piece 18-inch BBS wheels for improved traction.

Dodge, ORECA form partnership

- motorsport.com

1/16/2006

- ORECA to be exclusive source of Dodge Viper race cars to European teams

- Dodge Viper Competition Coupe to compete in new FIA racing series

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (January 16, 2006) -- Dodge announced it has signed a letter of intent with France-based Organisation et Exploitation Courses Automobiles (ORECA) Motorsport for sole distributorship of the Dodge Viper Competition Coupe in Europe.

"This agreement will help us build on the racing heritage and presence of the Dodge Viper, which has been one of the most successful racing cars in Europe," said John Fernandez, Director -- Motorsports Operations, Chrysler Group. "Our European customers who race will benefit tremendously from the services offered by ORECA, with whom we've partnered for many years."

The Dodge Viper Competition Coupe currently competes in several U.S. and European racing series, including the SPEED World Challenge GT Championship and Dutch Supercar Challenge. Until now, Viper Competition Coupes racing in Europe have been purchased from Dodge in the U.S. and exported to Europe. ORECA will now directly handle sales of the Dodge Viper Competition Coupe in Europe from its Toulon, France facilities, as well as provide race preparation, service and parts availability.

"We can offer racing customers a wide range of services," said Hugues de Chaunac, ORECA Chairman. "Our goal is to not only provide customers with the Dodge Viper Competition Coupe -- a proven race winner -- but also with whatever level of support they may require."

Building on a long relationship

ORECA campaigned Viper GTS-R race cars in Europe in the 1990s, winning three consecutive Federation de l'Automobile (FIA) championships in 1997-1999, as well as victories in the GT2 and GTS categories at the 24 Hours of LeMans endurance race in 1998, 1999 and 2000. In the U.S., Viper Team ORECA entries captured first overall at the Rolex 24 at Daytona and a 1-2-3 class win at the Sebring 12 Hours race, both in 2000; as well as championships in the American Le Mans series in 1999 and 2000.

Viper Competition Coupe in a new series

Separately, the FIA recently announced a new GT3 European Championship for 2006, with 10 manufacturers expected to field cars in competition. Dodge Viper Competition Coupes are anticipated to race against cars including the Aston Martin DBRS9, Ferrari F430 Challenge, Maserati Trofeo Light, Porsche 997 Cup and Lotus Exige [and the new Corvette Z06].

The Viper was the first of the 'new age' front-engined rear wheel drive GT cars. It sparked renewed interest in top flight GT racing.

But...

Dodge didn't homologate the Viper Competition Coupe for the 24 Hours of Le Mans or the American Le Mans Series.

They were meant more as a race car built buy dodge for the masses. More for the weekend want a be with money or a SCCA/NASA racer. You can walk into and dodge and they can order one for you... how many other company's can do walk in and by a racecar at any of there dealerships.

I was talking about the Viper GTS-R, not the Comp Coupe.

The Competition Coupe is only available to "professional and semi-professional drivers with racing credentials."

I wish Chevrolet would sell the Corvette C6-R like Dodge does with the Comp Coupe.

Ford sells the Mustang FR500C to race in Grand-Am Cup.
