The Last Hurah KING OF THE RING
Our beloved Viper has set 13 track records in the US. Let’s go back to the Ring and re-take the ultimate international crown as we sail into the sunset.

In September, 2011, the Viper ACR became the "Ring King" when Dominik Farnbacher set the production car lap record at 7:12:13. Years later, the Porsche 918 took the title (with battery power assistance). Let's make our final statement and take Back The Ring.

You can help!

ViperExchange will supply (free) two Viper ACR Extremes plus two internationally-known Viper drivers who consider The Ring their home track. It will cost between $150,000 and $200,000 to send the cars, pay for the track, the supplies, and operating expenses. This is strictly a volunteer operation and your contribution will fund only the expenses. Whether you can contribute $10,000 or $100, every little bit helps.

All contributors over $250 will have their names listed on a commemorative poster. Anyone who contributes $10,000 or more is invited to join us in Germany to witness the attempt(s). We'd like to do this in April, 2017. If we are unable to raise the required funds, your money will be refunded (minus the small Go Fund Me fees). We all love the Viper. Let's go out on top.

Additional details will be released as we move forward but this is OUR opportunity to control Vipers destiny, and OUR opportunity to see it go out on top like it came into the world back in 1992.

Love the idea of taking back the title and again showing the big names that a car doesn't have to cost 7 figures to be the fastest. Really hope they get the funds needed, if I had a spare 10k I'd love to be there for it.

I'll be able to manage that, I would donate my spares as that seems more appropriate given I think they will get through a few pads and disks

Chipped in a few quid, getting closer to the target they were hoping to do this in April guessing if they make the target after April it still happens?

Better for them to attempt in may-july time anyway with weather.
