Christopher Formosa has joined the TA2 Muscle Car Racing Series and will pilot a General Lee-inspired Dodge Challenger.
Formosa, who also races a Ford Ranger in the ECB SuperUtes Series, will debut in the Challenger-bodied car in Round 2 of TA2 this weekend at Morgan Park.
The orange saloon carries the same number (#49) as Formosa’s SuperUte and also branding from the family’s Allgate business.
“We are excited to announce that Allgate Motorsport (formerly Ranger Racing) has purchased a Dodge Challenger to run in the Australian TA2 Racing Muscle Car Series,” read a release from the team.
“It’s something we have been keeping a close eye on for a while now and thought that this is a good time to get involved.”
The team hopes to have the car racing again in Round 2 at the Pirtek Perth SuperNight in early May having “undergone extensive repairs.”
Aaron Seton heads the TA2 series from George Miedecke ahead of its second round, which starts this Friday.
