Trans-Am 2 Grows One Year On
The Queensland contingent of the Trans-Am 2 Australia Series heads to Ipswich’s Queensland Raceway for their fourth round of the year at the Queensland Racing Drivers Championship meeting.
One year on from its launch down under, Trans-Am 2 has experienced strong growth, with 17 cars now in the country ready for racing.
Trans-Am 2 category manager Craig Harris has been impressed with the growth of the series since its inception.
“In the first 12 months of the category in Australia, we have 12 cars on track and another five in stock ready to go,” said Harris
“They have already proven to be incredibly fast, reliable and economical to run.
“They look great, they sound great, the racing is close and that is what has got so many fans hooked on Trans-Am 2.”
Trans-Am 2 racers Cameron Sendall and Anthony Tenkate will head to Queensland Raceway off the back of a round in the New South Wales Trans-Am 2 Series at Sydney Motorsport Park alongside the NSW Sports Sedans, with plans to expand the series to New South Wales and Victoria next year.
Former V8 Supercar, Sports Sedan and Australian GT driver Steve Voight will drive the #52 Chevrolet Camaro at Queensland Raceway, previously steered by Ashley Jarvis to pole and a race win at round three.
Meanwhile, Australian Supercars endurance co-driver Steve Owen joined the recently launched TA2 Asia Racing Series to demonstrate their new Ford Mustang at the Bangsaen Grand Prix in Thailand. Founded by New Zealand Craig Corliss, TA2 Asia is set for a full series launch in 2018.
Seven cars will line up at Queensland Raceway, as the New South Wales competitors remain focussed on growing the series in the southern states.
Round four of the Queensland Trans-Am 2 Australia Series will see qualifying and four races at the fourth event of the 2017 Queensland Racing Drivers Championship.
