First Year GTS.


Driver: Robert A. Lutz


The Dodge Viper returned to Indianapolis to pace the Indy 500 just five years after the first Viper chosen to lead the pack in 1991. 1996 featured a new GTS coupe model, adding some noticable features that the RT/10 roadster lacked (such as a solid roof and glass side windows).


As with its predecessor, the 1996 Viper needed only to add mandatory safety features to handle pace car duties. The car was powered by a 450-HP, 8.0L V-10 engine, and was driven by Chrysler president Robert Lutz.


Only four Vipers were provided for speedway use. Dodge also provided the offical truck for the Indy 500, the Dodge Ram, given the same blue-and-white paint treatment and Indy 500 decals as the Viper. This truck was made available as a limited edition replica and was an instant hit. The blue-and-white paint scheme was also a standard color for production GTS coupes.

'Baby' Borg-Warner Trophy Presented to Indy 500 Winner Buddy Lazier


INDIANAPOLIS, May 8 -- Borg-Warner Automotive, Inc.
presented a personalized replica of its famous Borg-Warner
Indianapolis 500 Trophy to 1996 race winner Buddy Lazier today. The
presentation was made at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Hall of Fame Museum
by William "Skip" Cline, Borg-Warner Automotive Vice President and Controller.
"Borg-Warner has been awarding its trophy to Indy's race winner since
1936," said Cline. "We are proud to be a longtime sponsor of this great
racing spectacle. It's an honor to have Buddy Lazier's likeness alongside
those of the other great Indy winners on our world famous trophy. Our
congratulations to Buddy on his first Indy victory."
Buddy is a second generation driver. His father, Bob, preceded him at the
Indianapolis 500 in 1981, finishing 19th. Buddy is a veteran of four
Indianapolis 500's and set an aggressive pace by winning the 1996 Indy 500
with an average speed of 147.956 miles per hour.
Each winner of the Indy 500 receives a replica of the Borg-Warner
Indianapolis 500 Trophy. The driver's trophy is fondly referred to in the
racing world as the "Baby" trophy. The replica bears the winning driver's
likeness on its base along with the winning time.
Each winning driver's image is created in sterling for the larger
Borg-Warner Indianapolis 500 Trophy. Buddy's image for the trophy was
sculpted by artist Will Behrends who created the life-like look from studying
three pictures of the winner. Buddy's image was then affixed to the sterling
silver trophy and replica.
The trophy, which stands almost five feet high, is on permanent display at
the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Hall of Fame Museum. On race day, it is moved
to the Winner's Circle.
