TRANS AM CALENDAR PUBLISHED – Automatic action


By Dan McCarthy

The Australian Racing Group has announced the six-round schedule for the Trans Am National Series for the 2022 season.

The popular Trans Am series will travel to four states in six rounds and end with a non-championship round in Bathurst to end the season.

In fact, like the TCR Australia series, there will be two tours of the Mount Panorama circuit, as the muscle car series will also visit the track supporting the 6 Hours of Bathurst in April.

The Trans Am series will consist of six rounds, starting with a visit to Symmons Plains Raceway as part of the second edition of Race Tasmania.

The second round takes the V8-powered machines to the legendary Phillip Island Grand Prix circuit in Victoria, followed by the Easter weekend trip to Bathurst for the 6 hours.

Round 4 is a TBD location in New South Wales which will be confirmed in the near future.

Queensland Raceway will be the fifth event, while Sandown will be the last paid lap of the series.

While the series champion will be crowned in September, American muscle cars will also take part in the Bathurst International for the “Trans Am 100” from November 11 to 13.

“The Turtle Wax Trans Am series has quickly become a shining light on the Australian motorsport scene,” said Matt Braid, CEO of Australian Racing Group.

“With over 70 cars in the country now and more on the way, this class is no longer a sleeping giant.

“This six-round calendar for 2022 offers competitors a balanced and comprehensive series, with events in all three East Coast states, plus Tasmania, and two races at Mount Panorama – one for series points and one for the Supercheap. Auto Bathurst International.

“There is much to be excited about in the world of Trans Am, and the 2022 calendar is just the start of an exciting future on the national racing scene.”

The Turtle Wax Category Naming Rights Sponsor supported the Best Featured Team award – a $ 500 cash prize and car care product pack courtesy of Turtle Wax and Selleys will be awarded in each round.
