Ralph Gilles, the President and CEO of Dodge, has revealed details about the proposed Viper Cup Racing Series.
Speaking at the Gingerman Raceway in Michigan, Gilles discussed how the Series would "let the car really shine and show what it's capable of." It would enable the car to compete without restrictions, because as Gilles notes, "...in most races that the Viper participates in, it's actually restricted because it makes too much power."
While Chrysler's not supporting the series, as of yet, the company is feeling things out. Gilles stated "The interest is surprising us all and we're taking a lot of that data and debating inside the company what we should do with the brand."
Interestingly enough, Gilles said the Viper ACR-X has been sold out, but Chrysler "has the ability to make another batch and there's quite a bit of interest in that batch." Could the second batch become the official car of the Viper Cup Series? Possibly.
