The SRT (Street and Racing Technology) Motorsports Viper GTS-Rs finished sixth and seventh in the Monterey Grand Prix at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in another trying weekend in California during the fourth round of the 2014 IMSA TUDOR United SportsCar Championship.
The team was encouraged following strong performances in the morning’s final pre-race practice session, but the timed two-hour race resulted in a sixth-place finish for the No. 91 SRT Motorsports Viper GTS-R of Dominik Farnbacher and Marc Goossens and a seventh-place result for the No. 93 SRT Motorsports Viper GTS-R driven by Kuno Wittmer and Jonathan Bomarito.
Both teams got caught up in early-race skirmishes that resulted in minor contact incidents.
SRT Motorsports will seek a stronger finish when the IMSA TUDOR United SportsCar Championship returns to endurance racing in GTLM’s fifth round of the IMSA TUDOR United SportsCar Championship in June in the Sahlen's Six Hours of The Glen at New York’s Watkins Glen International. The event will mark the third long-distance race of the year, and SRT has placed a car on the podium in each of the year’s opening endurance races at Daytona International Speedway and Sebring International Raceway.
