Le Mans in 2013 saw the unveiling of the GT3 version of the 5th generation Viper, again a product of Riley Technologies and designed to break into the lucrative GT3 Customer motorsport marketplace on both sides of the Atlantic.

In such a packed marketplace though progress was slow, the early adopter for the new car was Ben Keating, he’d eventually campaign a pair of the cars, with no little success, in IMSA competition, the second car usually reserved for the enduros.

The second went to Dutch outfit Team RaceArt for a competitive campaign in the Dutch Supercar Challenge and BRSCC in Belgium and the third to Lone Star Racing in Pirelli World Challenge, the car also seeing IMSA action last season.

The factory team entered Kuno Wittmer in a one-off Pirelli World Challenge effort, that car later sold to, and campaigned by Tim Pappas’s Black Swan Racing outfit in PWC.

The Riley/ Viper Exchange effort saw a pair of wins in 2014 for the solo car (at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park and CoTA), this after a disastrous fire all but gutted the car at Sebring.

There were four wins in 2015 (two apiece for the full season car and two at the Rolex 24 and 6 Hours of the Glen Enduros for the sister #93), results that would help the team, and drivers Cameron Lawrence and Al Carter to the 2015 Patron North American Endurance Cup in the #93.

There were a further three wins on the way to second in the GTD Championship in the final season, 2016, including a win in the topsy turvy GTD race, Petit Le mans, the car’s final planned race, for Keating and long-time driving partner Jeroen Bleekemolen before the curtain came down on the programme, Mercedes AMG providing the 2017 motive power for the team.

And so, for now at least, the contemporary racing history of the Viper concludes – with two decades of success on track derailed eventually by a drying up of demand for the road going product.
