Continuity set to benefit title contender Brett Holdsworth

Following on from an impressive season in 2022, TPS Group Racing’s Brett Holdsworth enters the upcoming National Trans Am Series season with continuity, something missing from his previous two campaigns.

Coming off finishing third in last year’s series in what was a strong campaign culminating with rapid pace at Bathurst, Holdsworth is buoyed ahead of AWC Race Tasmania by how stable his campaign is as he continues at Ashley Seward Motorsport in his Chevrolet Camaro with backing by Breeze Holiday Park.

“This year is shaping up to be an absolute belter, and I’m expecting one of the closest top 10’s the category has ever had after qualifying at Symmons Plains,” said Holdsworth.

“The goal for us this year is to build on what we put together in 2022. It’s the same team, and same crew members working on the car this year so we’ve got some great consistency from last year and momentum as well. We finished the year strongly at the Bathurst International, and were definitely one of the quickest cars.”

A successful off-season test at Winton leaves Holdsworth following an off-season birthday for his Camaro leaves him confident of contending regularly in 2023.

“Our test day was extremely positive,” Holdsworth said.

“I was able to shake the car down after it had some touch ups in the off-season and it feels fantastic. We tried plenty of different things and set ourselves up nicely to hit the ground running at Race Tasmania.

“Trans Am is doing some different stuff this year with the formats, which is pretty cool. I believe the category has all the makings to be the best series in Australia and the sheer quality that’s assembled in the field for Round 1 just proves that. I can’t wait to get the year started.”

Holdsworth will begin his campaign at AWC Race Tasmania on February 24-26.
