Very cool to go back to the old color scheme. Maybe they will run white with blue stripes if they go back to Le Mans.

THIS was such great news and the awesome red/white scheme should have been done from the start on the GTSR over those boring colors You bring back the winning number (91) then bring back the winning colors too. Well done finally.

Don't understand what does bringing back the number and color have to do with winning back then and now? only cause back then it was a french team that was running the team Oreca program.. last time i checked a american team has never had success with the viper in the le man series. or whats it call now.

I like it. Learn the history. I think it is a way to say Dodge is the brand and stepping up.

It's a bad *** car, that's got its nuts half cut off to race in the series. Personally I wouldn't change colors, engineering is what wins races not paint schemes.

And the Glen is over with the Vipers finishing second and third in class for a podium. Needed just one more lap due to caution to pass Garcia possibly for the win. Bomarito said he likes the colors better and the fans told him the same. Cant wait to get close up again at COTA and the 24 of Daytona with these awesome new colors. Will they ever repeat the Vipers past success? Probably not as their competition has really come a long way since 2000.

sorry for my double quote. but just wanna add that yes lets not forget that the corvette team is the same team that was running against Team Oreca back in the late 90s.

I found the new colors nice as a fan watching the race. Easier to pick them out than the old siver, they just kind of blended in. I think one of the announcers made a good point that the silver looks good on the car when it's sitting there, but once you put it on the track it kind of disappears some. The red stands out much better.

Unfortunately the GM Corvette team kept running all these years while the Viper was out and gained a ton of experience and engineering gains.

Everyone starts somewhere. Relatively, Canaska / Southwind took time to become competitive as well, podiums at this stage are phenominal! Well done to SRT for reinventing the GTS-R program, I love following the Vipers on the big stage once again. Next step, Le Mans.

Again Vipers finished 2-3 with that damn vette team beating us again. but a good thing did come out Ben Keating won his first race with that team.

Funny to see a gt-3 viper win a race before the factory ones do

Wittmer's off-road plowing pretty much ended their hopes for the day.

Nice to see ViperExchange take home a win for Team Viper.:2tu:

GTLM is a WAY more sophisticated and competitive class in the TUDOR Series.

I was happy with that finish. First for the #33 in GTD, second and third for our ALMS cars. All Vipers on the podium, good day.
