Viper wins series, Dodge drops out

by David Zatz on

SRT is dropping its factory-backed racing effort in the International Motor Sports Association, or IMSA, despite having achieved both team and driver championships.

SRT ran in the IMSA TUDOR United SportsCar Championship with the Dodge Viper GTS-R GTLM team.


Ralph Gilles, who heads motorsports and design, said, “We are very proud of the amazing achievements our fantastic teams, drivers and partners have achieved on track the last few seasons. We thank them for their hard work, effort and commitment to SRT Motorsports. It’s been an honor to be a part of the inaugural IMSA TUDOR United SportsCar Championship season and we wish them every success in the future.”

The Dodge Viper SRT GTS-R 2014 racing season concluded Saturday, October 4 at the Petit Le Mans.  The two-car SRT team won the series team and driver (Kuno Wittmer) titles for their class, two of three class championships; it finished second in the GTLM manufacturer championship in the second full year of its program.

Dodge also dropped out of NASCAR in the season it won its first championship since the 1970s.
