VOA Helping Viper return to Nurburgring
« on: January 24, 2017, 09:54:59 AM »
In 2011, the 4th generation Viper set the fastest production car record at The Ring with a blistering 7:12.13. Since then, another vehicle has taken the top spot… and now, a grassroots effort is underway to fund the return of the newest incarnation of our wonderful car to the most grueling track on the planet!!
 
This is a volunteer operation, with ViperExchange supplying two Viper ACR Extremes and two internationally-known Viper drivers who consider The Ring their home track. It will cost between $150,000 and $200,000 in operating costs to get the cars there, and we’re calling all VOA members to help with the effort!
 
Whether you contribute $100, or $10,000, 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 the group at the Nurburgring to witness the attempt. The event is targeted for April of 2017. This is a crowd funded effort to achieve something amazing, for an amazing car. If we are unable to raise the required funds, your money will be refunded (minus the small Go Fund Me fees).  Let’s go out with a bang! If you’re interested in contributing and adding your name as a supporter, click here to visit the event fundraiser: https://www.gofundme.com/take-back-the-ring-record
The VOA’s purpose is to further the Viper’s cause and add enjoyment to its owners. To that end, the club itself has donated $2000 (from its store revenue) for this purpose! We are serious about making this happen. The fund raising effort will be getting more national press and coverage, and hopefully if we raise enough, we'll be covering the event itself. We hope you take a moment to consider contributing to this great cause and send our Viper back to make history once again!!
 
-The VOA Team

Closing in on $127K.  Consider joining me and John in matching the Reinsmas' contribution!

Or at the very least, please spare a few bucks for the children of today who will grow up driving EVs  :'(

Prefix Corporation Joins Effort to Take Viper
Back to Germany’s Famous Nürburgring
Some would think this effort makes no sense… But then, you learn about the amazing passion behind this final attempt.

(Rochester Hills, MI) - - Throughout the Automotive and Aviation business, Michigan based, Prefix is typically known as the company that industry manufacturers partner with, to bring their new de-signs to life. Utilizing their wide-ranging capabilities, the Prefix team creates the most technologi-cally advanced concept vehicles and prototypes in the industry. From concept luxury cars and business jets, and even spaceships seen in Hollywood films.

However, to hard-core Viper enthusiasts, Prefix is best known as the place where all current Vipers are meticulously hand-painted. At their Auburn Hills facility, every Viper receives a labor-intensive paint and finishing process typically reserved for custom show cars. Additionally, Prefix dyno-tests every massive Viper V-10 engine prior to installation, and their interior trim department even provides custom luxury interiors to those who want something truly one-of-a-kind.

So, when Dodge announced that this summer production of the Viper® would come to an end, Prefix and many within the Viper community desired a way to send-off the Viper with a loud V-10 roar. “The logistics and expense involved to take on this challenge are enormous!” exclaimed event organizer, Russ Oasis. “We really appreciate everyone involved in supporting the effort and making this happen.” Next month, Prefix Corporation, Kumho Tire USA, The Viper Exchange, BJ Motors, and an exceedingly passionate group of Viper enthusiasts will return to Germany, at-tempting to take back the Nürburgring record with a production fifth generation Viper ACR Ex-treme.

The challenging 13 mile race track that circles the small village of Nürburg, or… “The Ring” as it is affectionately known to gear heads around the globe, can arguably be considered the ultimate in bragging rights, when completing a lap in record time. In 2011, the Viper captured that record with the fastest production car lap. The production car record is currently held by a Lamborghini Hura-cán Performante, although many in the automotive world dispute the Lamborghini’s time and feel that the Porsche 918 is the rightful owner of the current record. This Viper group believes taking back the record from all contenders would be a great way to celebrate the car’s impressive run as America’s Supercar.

“Prefix has a long history with the Viper and with the many Viper club members around the world.” explained Prefix Sales & Marketing Director, Jhan Dolphin. “This is a huge challenge, but regardless of the outcome, supporting this effort is a great way to celebrate the car and our passion-ate friends who drive them.”

No one can deny the Viper’s performance capability, with a previous Nürburgring record and cur-rently holding track records at 13 different U.S. racetracks. So why bother? When you speak to those involved, it is clear that this 2017 effort is purely about automotive passion. For additional information on Prefix, visit: www.prefix.com
