Paolo looked very good with the car. However the only shots taken were with the body on. Out of respect for Serpent that is what was requested and I kept my word.

Looking foward to see Michael Salvin and Mark Green along with Paolo at the Winternats.

My guess would be by having this as a bolt on an alternate part or maybe just spacers takes the place of changing from 2 degree to zero degree kingpin inclination front steering blocks.

Hello guys, finally Serpent has released the official pictures, so we can talk about the Viper

I have being running the car extensively since early December testing all the adjustments. Since the first time out the feeling was really good, smoother and easier to drive than my 966, yet i was able to turn immediately the same lap times (back to back test same day with same engine, etc). Considering i have being developing and testing my 966 for 3 years, to me was a super result. After 40+ track time hours testing the car for durability, etc. etc, i was actually able to learn most of the adjustments. My last outing was at the FSS in Homestead, were actually i was able to go really fast (beside the fact that the car TQ and Won). Of course we need to keep running and build the knowledge base in order to have a better setup and develop the car, but at this stage i am already faster than with my previous car.

Michael has put his heart and soul in this project, trying to deliver the latest trends in a easy to use yet cutting edge/nice looking project, and i really believe he was able to achieve his goal.

The international debut will be at The Fort in a few weeks. Michael, Mark and myself will be there racing the Viper. Please don't hesitate to come by and check the car out, ask questions, etc.
