Zach Loscialpo’s new car learning continues

Since debuting his new Team Tempest Solutions Chevrolet Camaro at last year’s Turtle Wax Trans Am Series penultimate round at Sydney Motorsport Park, progression in development continues for Zach Loscialpo.

The final two rounds last year provided a better understanding of the Loscialpo’s new Camaro after a shakedown prior to the fifth round at SMP was hampered by wet weather.

“We’ve learnt quite a bit about the car at the final two rounds last year,” said Loscialpo.

“Set-up wise it is very different to the old car, but we’ve got to extract a little more pace to catch the frontrunners and we’re very close to doing that.”

Since debuting the Camaro, Loscialpo has finished within the top 10 in each race bar one and was quick to highlight more time behind the wheel will only increase the competitiveness of the package.

“There are still a few minor changes I reckon we could pick out, but I think now it’s coming down to the driver experience because I’m still getting used to this car,” he explained.

“There are just a few areas we need to improve on when it comes to the braking and getting out of the corner as soon as possible.

Loscialpo returns to the venue where he made his Turtle Wax Trans Am Series debut last year, Symmons Plains next month where he hopes continued learning will provide a strong result in the Apple Isle.

“The more you drive these cars and understand it, the more things you pick up,” Loscialpo noted.

“Once you start getting the hang of it, you get more comfortable in the car and become one with it.

“We’ve got some good goals for this season and we might even have some extra support.”

Race Tasmania will again begin the Turtle Wax Trans Am Series in 2022 at Symmons Plains, supported by the Supercheap Auto TCR Australia Series, the S5000 Australian Drivers’ Championship and awesome local categories.
