Did you happen to go to Texas World Speedway when the One Lap of America visited that track? Then you would have seen the Viper (with only very minor mods, pushing it into the 610 hp range) beat the competition: http://www.onelapofamerica.com/History/2002/results/EVENT12.HTM http://www.onelapofamerica.com/History/2002/results/EVENT13.HTM Do you happen to see any Caterhams or Super 7's on that list? Do you think a Caterham, Super 7, or TVR would last 18 events like that Viper and still win overall?
