TA2 cars in Australia?
« on: October 29, 2021, 03:59:58 PM »
It seems that almost every week, we are treated to stories about new TA2 cars.

Some owners are getting a second car and putting a driver into the old.

One team is expanding from three to five cars.

A number of driers who have been racing other peoples cars now are getting their own.

It makes me wonder if we now have 80 to 100 cars in the various Australian series that run TA2 cars. Way back in July 2020 they had 50 cars, but that may have been for one series. I don't know.

compared to what else is available is there really a better category 'bang for buck' out there?

they look good, they sound good, they are a crowd favourite.

I love 'em!

I agree, and now the USA contingent want in. I look forward to that.

Discussions are underway with American Trans Am drivers to compete in the inaugural Supercheap Auto Bathurst International in November.

Strong interest from a number of leading competitors from the Trans Am racing’s homeland has been shown in entering the ‘Trans Am 100’ around the famous Mount Panorama Circuit.

Having seen them a few times now, they look the part, they sound the part, they go alright, don't mind leaning onto each other and seem reliable unlike some classes out there.
