Western Australian team ready to join Turtle Wax Trans Am Series fray
Team Boley Racing will make its debut in the Turtle Wax Trans Am Series at Phillip Island after the easing of border restrictions.
The Western Australian-based team planned to contest the opening round at AWC Race Tasmania in its ex-Dream Racing Australia Chevrolet Camaro, but it was unable to make the trip due to the imposed border restrictions.
Now with these eased, driver Brock Boley will make his debut at one of Australia’s premier circuits.
“Yeah, it’s all go now,” said Boley. “After watching Tassie, we are pretty keen.
“I have actually raced at Phillip Island before so it will be good to make my debut in the series on a track I already know.”
Father Brad will also support the entry after just falling short of entering a two-car team into the series after purchasing a second Trans Am recently, albeit hopes are not dashed on expansion in the future.
“We were considering running two cars nationally this season, but we couldn’t grab a major sponsor so we decided just to run the one car with Brock driving it this season,” Brad explained.
“It would be great to partner with a WA business to fly the flag over on the East in the future but we will just see what happens.”
Team Boley Racing will have an alignment with leading Turtle Wax Trans Am Series operation Dream Racing Australia at its Melbourne base where not only will the Western Australian team’s entry and transporter will be stored, but technical support will be provided.
“Craig Scutella has been a great help to us every step of the way,” Brad stated. “We are hoping Dream Racing Australia can help us fast track our development in the category, but we will be ready and raring to go when the flag drops at Phillip Island.”
The next round of the Turtle Wax National Trans Am Series will be at Phillip Island on March 18-20 forming part of the opening event for the Shannons Motorsport Australia Championships.
