SRT VIPER GTS-R
Like all GT racecars, the layout and
seating position in the Viper GTS-R
cockpit is defined by a number of
often conflicting requirements,
including optimizing weight
distribution, allowing drivers of
differing heights to fit “comfortably,”
and retaining the street car’s driver/
passenger spaces (as per ACO rules).
For races such as the Rolex 24
at Daytona and the 24 Hours of
Le Mans, with their longer stints,
ergonomics are even more critical.
There’s an 8-liter V10 engine ahead of the
Viper GTS-R’s firewall, but the work by SRT
and Riley Technologies on optimizing the
car’s weight distribution means it’s
something that Marc Goossens and his
fellow drivers don’t have to think about.
