|Congratulations to the GTS-R #93 car for their 2nd place finish at Sebring on March 15th|
Drivers Rob Bell, Jonathan Bomarito, and Kuno Wittmer all led the race at various points , including Bomarito in the final hour of the race. The final caution of the race sent the 93 car to the pits, while the Porsche 912 pitted under green before the yellow flag flew, giving that team good enough track position for the win. The 91 car led the race twice, and finished in 7th place. Early in the second half, Hunter-Reay spun the 91 car in Turn 17 and ended up in the tire barrier.
Ben Keating was driving the Viper Exchange GT3R #33 car just 35 minutes in to the race when , in Turn 6, a drive shaft yoke break at the rear axle caused a massive fire. Thankfully Ben escaped uninjured but his car was literally toasted. As you might expect, Ben kept his sense of humor intact and said if anything good came out of it would be the publicity for Viper Exchange, adding that they would offer some RED HOT deals between now and the Long Beach race!

This looks as if this will be an incredibly successful year for the SRT Motorsports Race Team, with a podium finish at Daytona in January and a 2nd place finish at Sebring!
The next race is Sat., April 12th at the Long Beach Grand Prix ! Stay tuned!
