At one side, Dodge has just started the testing for its 2013 next generation Dodge Viper, while on the other, the earlier models are showing their class by setting new lap record at Miller Motorsports Park.
Yes, you rightly read the above statement. The street legal 2010 Dodge Viper ACR set a lap record of 1:59.995 on Monday at the Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, Utah, breaking the previous best of 2:03.86 that was set by Chevrolet Corvette ZR1. It happens for the first time that a production car succeeds to lap the track of 3.048 mile.
“It’s amazing to come to this world-class track and shatter the production car lap record by almost 4 seconds,” said Bryan Viger, Head of Dodge Motorsports. “We brought our street-legal Viper ACR to see what Kuno could do behind the wheel, and on his second lap he’d already gone faster than the single lap record.”
A veteran behind the wheel of the Viper on and off the track, Wittmer continues to be impressed by the performance of the Dodge Viper ACR. “Wow, what an awesome supercar!” the Montreal native said after exiting the car. “The Viper ACR is such a blast to drive at the limit, and I can honestly say that I didn’t leave an inch out there on the track and was barely braking in the corners.”
