Welcome to the Viper Rendezvous! This is your source for all things related to the premier Viper Track weekend.
The Viper Rendezvous is a 2 1/2 day track weekend exclusive to Dodge Viper owners who want to experience all that their Viper has to offer in a controlled road course environment. That is, if you can control it at over 120 mph!
If you don't own and drive a Viper, then you will have to find another track venue as this weekend is for Vipers only!
The best part about the whole weekend is that you don't have to worry about all of those speed bumps. No, Corvettes, Ferraris, Porsches, Mustangs, or even Miatas, just Vipers!
If you are a track veteran, you will love the amount of track time and if you are a rookie, you will have an instructor to ride along with you.
The entire weekend is hosted at the Motorsport Park Hastings (MPH) road course in Hastings, Nebraska. It is centrally located to just about everyone in the continental United States. The track was designed by Alan Wilson who also designed other well known tracks such as Miller Motorsports Park, Gingerman Raceway, Autobahn Country Club and Barber Motorsport Park. The track is easy to learn for the novice drivers and technical enough to challenge the advanced drivers. With plenty of runoff, you will experience a safe environment to let your Viper run wild!
We typically have drivers from 8-10 states in attendance for the weekend. Arrive on Thursday and be ready for track time bright and early Friday morning. We will wrap everything up by Sunday at lunch so, you have time to get your car and guests home in good time.

The Bacardi Bus
Friday night, you will have to put your Vipers away as you will be chauffeured for a few laps around the track in the infamous Bacardi Bus. George Anderson will be your driver, navigator, and tour guide for the fastest laps you have ever had around a track in a highly modified yellow and black school bus. Look out for that custom chrome smoke stack!
Viper Group Photo
Saturday, over the lunch break, all Viper owners

interesting to see what the new photo design will be. You can
see Viper Rendezvous V photo below in which we have the cars
arranged to spell "GTS". Other past designs include spelling
"VIPER", "SRT", and even aligning the Vipers in the shape of
the MPH track!
Grand Finale Banquet and Awards Night
The Saturday night grand finale banquet will be hosted at an offsite location where the trophy winners will be announced and we will hear from our guest speaker. Also, expect a few surprises at the dinner as you never know what someone might do.
