Leading National Trans Am Series team to change structure for 2022

Current two-car National Trans Am Series team Harris Racing will change its structure next year where it hopes to provide race and logistics support to new entrants next season.

Aaron Seton and Hadrian Morrall spearhead the Harris Racing attack on this year’s series in a pair of Ford Mustangs, but one of these will be put up for sale in what signals a change of structure for the Queensland-based team.

Harris Racing is hoping to provide transport and event trackside support to two new Trans Am entrants, while also maintaining its newer Mustang currently campaigned by Seton.

“I’m just looking at a different business model where rather than owning two Trans Ams, I own one and support others,” Harris said.

“I have a couple of guys up in Brisbane, who are about to join Trans Am and they were hoping I could help freight the cars, provide race support during a weekend or maintain them, if we have to.

“At the moment its track support and logistics. I’ve got the semi-trailer, which has the capacity to hold four cars so if we can do a deal with those guys, we’ll do that.

“I could potentially be running three cars next year, but all the stars would have to align for that.”

Harris Racing’s Ford Mustang, which is up for sale is the one utilised by Morrall this season. Previously driven to title success by Seton, he took a clean-sweep of victories when the category debuted on the streets of Adelaide back in 2020.

The next round of the National Trans Am Series will be held at Sandown International Raceway on September 17-19.
