Continuing the team’s tradition of presenting interactive content for both sports car and Viper enthusiasts alike, ViperExchange.com will present a live, two-hour special this Thursday from the SRT Motorsports paddock area in advance of the season-ending IMSA TUDOR United SportsCar Championship Petit Le Mans.

Straight from the SRT Motorsports paddock at Road Atlanta, the live and interactive webcast begins this Thursday, Oct. 2, at 5 p.m. EDT/2 p.m. PDT and will air straight through 7 p.m. EDT/4 p.m. PDT. Fans can join live any time during the webcast at ViperExchange.com.

As part of the team’s “Behind the Coil” series, this is the biggest opportunity yet for fans to interact and chat live with key personnel and drivers from the ViperExchange.com team and their SRT Motorsports colleagues who have been invited to be part of the program.

While past webcasts have been one-hour editions focused on drivers Ben Keating and Jeroen Bleekemolen and the No. 33 SRT Viper GT3-R, Thursday’s event will be a wide-open two-hour special with other SRT drives and team members expected to join the program.

Winning weekend

Both ViperExchange.com and SRT Motorsports are coming off a winning weekend in the most recent IMSA TUDOR Championship a little over one week ago at Circuit of The Americas.

Keating and Bleekemolen won in Texas in the No. 33 and come to Road Atlanta looking for consecutive GT Daytona (GTD) victories and their third of the year.

The Dodge Viper SRT GTS-R teams in turn finished one-two in the GTLM class with race winners Jonathan Bomarito and Kuno Wittmer taking a seven-point lead the championship standings heading to Atlanta with the No. 93 entry. Texas runner-ups Marc Goossens and Dominik Farnbacher are third in the GTLM points race prior to Petit Le Mans in the No. 91.

“It’s a real pleasure to be able to present our program in front of the loyal Viper fans,” said Keating, driver and team owner of the No. 33 machine. “This week’s presentation should be our best yet, with not only the extended time but also a number of invited guests and special segments on the cards. Petit Le Mans is such a special event, it will be great to get our fans a special look inside both our operation and Team SRT’s championship bid.”

As a two-hour special, fans will have plenty of opportunities to join in, chat live, as well as win a number of prizes and giveaways.

The season-ending Petit Le Mans can be seen live in its entirety on IMSA.com and in same-day coverage on FOX Sports 2 beginning at 3 p.m. EDT this Saturday, Oct. 4. Race highlights will air on FOX on Sunday, Oct. 5 and viewers can check local listings in their areas for air times.
