During the recent SRT media event at Willow Springs Raceway, our own Ralph Gilles was giving thrill rides in the hot new 470 horsepower 6.4L HEMI® powered 2012 Charger SRT8. A few adventure seekers from the automotive press stepped forward and rode shotgun while Ralph did some high-speed runs while letting it all hang out with some tire smoking drifting maneuvers. George Notaras from MotoMan stepped up to the plate and was able to trap Ralph and get some insights in the newly reenergized SRT brand. As Ralph puts it Our mission at SRT is not just have people fall in love with the cars, but also with the overall community. – Ah yes, spoken like a true enthusiast!
