Presented by Patrón kicks off on May 12th at Laguna Seca Raceway in
California – the 2013 SRT Viper GTS-R will be among the vehicles
partaking of the grueling 6 hour road race.

The American Le Mans Monterey Presented by Patrón is the third stop of
the 2012 ALMS season with the Mazda Laguna Seca Raceway in California
serving as the setting for the Viper’s glorious return to endurance
racing.  There will be two teams entering the 2013 SRT Viper GTS-R into
the first race back in the ALMS after being a dominant force in the
endurance racing world in the late 90s and early 2000s, with drivers
Dominik Farnbacher, Marc Goossens, Ryan Hunter-Reay and Kuno Wittmer
handling the driving.  The specially prepared Viper GTS-R race cars will
be built by Riley Technologies and with any luck, the first race for
the new Viper in the ALMS will bring us the full specifications of the
new race-built Viper.


The American Le Mans Monterey Presented by Patrón is set to begin at
4:30pm eastern standard time on May 12th and you can watch the action
live on ESPN3 via your Xbox Live membership on Xbox 360.  Also, Xbox
users can catch the qualifying for the Laguna Seca race on Friday May
11th at 7:30pm (EST).  Those who want to catch the American LeMans
Series action from Laguna Seca but do not have Xbox 360 (or access to
ESPN3), you can watch the race on ESPN2 on Sunday May 13th at 5:00pm
EST.
