SRT Viper Want To Rule Baltimore Again
BALTIMORE – History has been made and now, the SRT Viper team seeks embellishment in the form of a second-straight victory in Saturday’s American Le Mans Series Grand Prix of Baltimore presented by SRT.
Dominik Farnbacher and Marc Goossens captured GT honors on Aug. 11 at Road America, giving SRT Viper its first factory-backed America Le Mans Series presented by Tequila Patrón victory since New Year’s Eve 2000.
Farnbacher and Goossens return this week in the No. 91 SRT Viper GTS-R, and will be joined by Jonathan Bomarito and Kuno Wittmer in the No. 93 Pennzoil Ultra Viper GTS-R.
“We proved last year that if you want to have a good result at Baltimore, you have to stay out of trouble,” Goossens said, referring to last year’s race where they ran a solid eighth before a late-race incident. “It’s a place where you need to be very patient, and we showed at Long Beach (where they finished third) that we can do that and are up for a good result on a street course. Last year at Baltimore was one of our better runs with the SRT Viper GTS-Rs. But it’s a completely different game this year, and I’m looking forward to going back there stronger than we were last year.”
Farnbacher and Goossens currently are tied for second with BMW Team RLL Crowne Plaza driver Dirk Mueller in the GT standings with 73 points, trailing Corvette Racing Compuware drivers Oliver Gavin and Tommy Milner, who co-lead the class with 78 points.
