Primetime Racing Viper Stranded in the St. Pete Street Fight in the American Le Mans Series in Florida
Primetime Race Group will next take its Viper to The Tequila Patron American Le Mans Series at Long Beach, California
The Primetime Viper was made as a competition coupe for the European racing circuit. “We took it and developed it for the GT2 Class,” he said. “It has a V10 engine and we run a K&N air filter. K&N gives us excellent filtration and more air for additional power in competitions.”
Fifty three minutes into the St. Pete Grand Prix, slippery track conditions and tire complications resulted in an equation that left the Primetime Viper stranded in turn 10 on the back straight. There was debris on the track and Feinberg locked up in the brake zone and blew out his right front tire.
The Viper limped around the downtown waterfront streets and Feinberg attempted to reach pit lane for a tire change. On the back straight, he lost steering control and the Viper went into the concrete barrier wall.
The chassis on the Viper was not affected by the accident. “It was a sad ending to an optimistic beginning,” said Feinberg. “I’m really at a loss for words. With our strategy and clean racing we had the potential to finish on the podium. That’s racing.”
The Primetime Group plans to return to The Tequila Patron American Le Mans Series in Long Beach, California.
