Even lesser known tracks, such as the New York Safety Track in upstate New York, are being dominated. Here, driver Sam Yau set a new record in the Dodge Viper ACR, only to return a couple of days later with a fresh set of tires and set yet another record with a lap time of 1:29.08. To put that in perspective, it’s more than 3-seconds faster than the previous record of 1:32.6, which was set by a purpose-built, open-top race car.
With the discontinuation of the Viper, it’s nice to see the car is still being used the way it was meant to be used. Hit play to see in-dash footage of Yau’s record-setting run in a bright Yorange Dodge Viper ACR.
