    Gen 5 with Indy cars Grand Prix Long Beach

    This was just announced today, I knew about it a couple weeks ago, but it wasn't a sure thing-
    https://gplb.com/global-time-attack-...-prix-weekend/
    Thanks to Jason Deinhart who runs Global Time Attack for somehow pulling this off, it's freakin' awesome. The GTA cars will get one session a day at the Grand Prix Long Beach Indy event Sept 24-26. So yeah, a Viper will be on the same track as Indy cars, same day same event. We don't get any practice, we just have to show up and haul ass through the city streets of Los Angeles, with concret barriers and no run off, so not so sure how fast I'll be, but one thing is for sure, the 200,000 fans watching will know a Viper was the best sounding car they have ever heard!

    That should be a blast and certainly a rare opportunity! Viper has some history there. Highlights include a SPEED World Challenge win in 2010 (pictured) and the first pole for the Gen V GTS-R effort in IMSA 2013 with a 1:18.845 lap time.

    That's awesome. Racing and then watching the Indy race. And then there's the podium girls to look forward to.

    HISSSSSTORY:

    Back in 1995.......I did a similar event with Molson Indy Vancouver, and organized 35 Vipers, all G-1.

    Chrysler Canada PAID US to bring our Vipers to the event. They paid for Vancouver Delta Hotel, race admission, and gave us uniform shirts to wear. They gave each of us $100 US cash for pocket money. They provided an indoor parking display at BC Place! Always had a crowd around our Snake Pit.

    In turn we became the driver-parade, with 35 drivers taking 2 laps sitting/standing on/in our roadster cars. Names on cars.
    Viper was the race-day pace car........ just as it was in 1996 Indy! In fact, very few Chrysler USA knew what we were up to!

    That event became the basis of the FIRST international Viper club.....we created the Western Canada VCA around those 25 Canada owners. 10 owners came from OR-WA-CA, not enuf Canada cars then!

    On the off-chance that YOU WERE THERE, please reach out? I just found a pristine XL shirt from that event, seems it never ever fit me........


    Have Fun !! and remember your HISSSSSTORY

    AZ, sounds great!! Open weekend for me and a couple of my buddies have condo's on the track. See you there.

    Spend the week in SoCal then head up to Willow on the following Thursday. Friday is an open Test & Tune at Willow, then the West Coast Event is on Saturday & Sunday.

    Welcome to stay the week down in Dana Point, ocean view but have to find a place to store your big rig!

    Also, pick your battles on that Long Beach Track, kind of like walking in the desert, just like the cholla cactus, those concrete walls in some places bite!!!

    Holy crap, what!?

    Global Time Attack, IndyCar, IMSA, Stadium Super Trucks and Formula Drift?

    As anti-car as California can be, that's A LOT of motorsports!

    I'd make a week long trip to Cali for all that and then some. That's incredible.
