It’s all about the one-percenters for Aaron Seton
National Trans Am Series leader Aaron Seton credits his focus on the one-percenters to his success in the class as begins to focus on a close title fight.
Seton holds a narrow four-point margin to Dream Racing Australia’s Nathan Herne in the series, but it’s he and father Glenn’s attention to detail, which has allowed him to raise his level in what has been a highly competitive season so far.
“You’ve always got to keep on improving every time you go out on track,” Seton said.
“I’m always working on the car, I’m always working on myself, there’s always a little area I can improve and it’s just those one-percenters that add up.
“You’re just looking at what you can do better and through the consistency of always doing that, it always works out in the end.”
Seton highlighted his Bathurst battle with Herne at Easter as one of his highlights of the year and is excited to resume the fight there later this year.
“I was able to come away with two wins at Bathurst and Nathan won Race 3, so I’m looking forward to getting back there hopefully,” he said.
However, Seton’s success at Baskerville in the Roadways Tasmanian Ten Thousand remains a favourite moment as learning one of Australian motor racing’s hidden secrets was a tough task.
“It was just really good to come away with the win for the team,” he said.
“It was a big effort from the team, obviously on back-to-back weekends in Tasmania and it was probably the most special this year.
“It was a very challenging circuit. It was my first time visiting there and it was very much a tight drivers circuit, you had to hustle the car around there. It was good fun to drive, but it was quite challenging to pass as obviously the Trans Am cars are quite wide around a narrow track, so it made things difficult.
“I definitely enjoyed learning a new track and it was a challenge to learn.”
