Trans Am Takes to the Streets
THE 2024 Trans Am Series calendar will conclude with an incredible season finale’ at the VAILO Adelaide 500 next November.
The season finale’ at one of Australia’s largest motorsport events culminates a seven-round national series planned for next year set to continue the strong growth of the category into the new season.
The Trans Am Series launched at the famous Adelaide Parklands Circuit in 2020 before that season was ultimately shut down due to the pandemic.
That weekend, Aaron Seton won the weekend – scoring pole and winning all three races in the first ever Trans Am round in Australia.
In 2024 it will instead host the season finale’ at the conclusion of a bumper calendar that takes the series to five states around Australia.
Trans Am 2024 will launch with the Shannons SpeedSeries on February 9-11 at Sandown International Raceway in Victoria.
A trip to the Apple Isle follows with a return to Race Tasmania at Symmons Plains Raceway outside of Launceston, before the SpeedSeries event at Phillip Island in April.
May will see the debut of a brand-new circuit on the Trans Am calendar, namely Shell V-Power Motorsport Park (The Bend) in South Australia.
The series’ has never raced on the high-speed, fast and flowing venue however, as is the case at Phillip Island, is likely to produce great racing at the venue to Adelaide’s South East.
From there it’s a return to Queensland Raceway in July before a mid-season pause sets the teams up for the massive run home later in the season.
That commences with the Supercheap Auto Bathurst International in November, followed by the VAILO Adelaide 500 one week later.
The Bathurst International was the scene of this year’s dramatic season finale’ that saw James Moffat clinch the title, while Adelaide will be just the second time the series’ has competed on a street circuit.
The first six rounds will see the series included in the Shannons SpeedSeries’ brand-new broadcast deal, to be announced soon.
The Adelaide 500 will see coverage on Fox Sports and Kayo Sports across the season-ending weekend.
