SCCA — Trans Am is Back, and Bigger Than Ever
On May 9th, 2015, Trans Am had a staggering 74 cars entered in the two races at beautiful Road Atlanta. To say that the grid was packed would be an understatement. This, of course, is great news for racing fans, because a full grid means lots of cars are fighting over the same real estate. If you’re looking for racing that’ll hold you on the edge of your seat, look no further. One of the season’s hottest series has kicked off the summer with a healthy list of entries and fierce competition in the early races.
Trans Am has pushed hard this year, in an effort to revive and enhance the returning series. Even though it’s relatively early in the season, the plan seems to have worked. As the grid grows larger nearly every race, the excitement follows suit. Between the three classes, with the TA class comprised of 850 horsepower, fire-breathing monsters, you’re bound to have a good time if you turn your attention to Trans Am. Each 100 mile sprint pits drivers against one another in what is often non-stop, flat-out driving that’ll have you holding your breath. Plus, who doesn’t like to see their favorite street car outfitted in a wide-body shell while cranking out enough torque to disintegrate an average driveshaft? If the description of a TA class car doesn’t raise your pulse, then the sound of one screaming down the front straight definitely will.
I urge all racing fans to check out Trans Am this summer. As a growing series with a rich heritage, fueled by ridiculously fast cars, Trans Am is a must-see for any motorsports fanatic. Personally, I think that this series will be one of the more interesting ones to follow this year, given the range of drivers and level of competition present already in the season. So, sit back, relax, and maybe grab some ear plugs, because Trans Am has hit the ground running this summer, and they have no plans to slow down.
