Viper ACR Sets 7:01.3 on Fi­nal ‘Ring At­tempt

Car India - - BULLETIN -

An in­de­pen­dent crowd-fu nded eff ort to bid adieu to what many con­sider the great­est Amer­i­can sports car, the Viper saw a pri­va­teer group take two stock Viper ACR from a Texas deal­er­ship and em­bark on a quest to ce­ment the Viper’s spot in his­tory. Driver Lance Arnold set a time of 7:01.3 on his first fly­ing lap. The day Arnold set his time, one car suf­fered a seized diff, and the other crashed fol­low­ing a high-speed tyre fail­ure. That the Viper could post a sub-seven-minute time was widely be­lieved. This at­tempt makes it the fastest Amer­i­can, rear-wheel-drive, man­ual-trans­mis­sion car around the grue­some cir­cuit.
