Not long after its entry was confirmed for the 2015 24 Hours of Le Mans, ViperExchange.com/Riley Motorsports has revealed the livery of its GTE-Am class Dodge Viper GTS-R for June’s 83rd running of the endurance classic.
The primarily white Viper will feature red and blue accents, featuring logos from partners Dodge, TI Automotive, Michelin, Pennzoil, Client Command and Motegi Racing.
“For sure, Le Mans has the most history and prominence in the sports car racing world,” said Ben Keating, who will share the No. 53 car with Jeroen Bleekemolen and Marc Miller.
“There is nothing like it. Any 24-hour race is tough and filled with the drama that only a twice-around-the-clock race can create, but Le Mans is special.
“Whether it has been books, movies or careers, Le Mans has been the basis of so many incredible stories and challenges. For me to be able to race a Viper at Le Mans makes it even more incredible. This is a dream on so many levels.”
Bill Riley’s team will have two GT Daytona class-entered Dodge Viper GT3-Rs this weekend at the Continental Tire Monterey Grand Prix Powered by Mazda, with Keating and Bleekemolen in the team’s No. 33 car and Miller and Jeff Mosing in the sister No. 93 car.
