Trans Am rookie Lochie Dalton aims to continue success at Phillip Island

Garry Rogers Motorsport duo Lochie Dalton and Owen Kelly completed a test at Phillip Island this week prior to the second round of Turtle Wax Trans Am at the venue on March 18-20.

The pair of Tasmanians completed a successful day of running as Dalton aims to continue his opening round form, where he took third in the final race and sits fourth in the standings in front of his home crowd at AWC Race Tasmania.

Dalton has moved on from his initial success and is aiming to continue this at Phillip Island following a productive test.

“Tassie was a great success for us,” Dalton reflected.

“We kept it clean and ended up grabbing a podium, which was great. No focused on Phillip Island, we’re out here testing a few things and getting a few laps under my belt.

“It’s actually a new circuit for me and the day was really great, we progressed, all the other boys progressed so it was a really valuable day. We look forward to coming here and racing in a couple of weeks.”

GRM Director Barry Rogers is excited by the team’s next generation of drivers.

“Lochie is one of a tremendous group of young drivers we currently have at GRM, and it is this group that gets Garry excited and the reason why we go racing at GRM,” Rogers emphasised.

“Lochie was very impressive at AWC Race Tasmania and following the test I would expect him to again be challenging for a podium in the ultra-competitive Trans Am field when we line up at Phillip Island in just over a week.”

The second round of Turtle Wax Trans Am will be part of the opening Shannons Motorsport Australia Championships event of the season at Phillip Island on March 18-20.
