Revised Class Structure for Trans Am in 2024
Trans Am will introduce a revised class structure for the 2024 season, with the Outright class joined by a new Pro-Am classification.
In previous seasons Trans Am had been split across three classes – Outright, Masters and Hoosier Cup. The introduction of a Pro-Am class is aimed at rewarding the privateer teams and drivers within the category.
Drivers will be placed into their respective class based on previous performances in national or domestic competitions. Pro-Am drivers will still be eligible for outright points, but outright drivers will not be eligible to score points in the Pro-Am class.
Young drivers who are competing for the new ‘Young Gun of the Round’ Award, will also be able to score points in their respective Outright or Pro-Am class.
Dream Racing Team Owner Craig Scutella took out both the Masters and Hoosier Cup honours in 2023 while placing sixth in the overall points, with Outright series victory going to Garry Rogers Motorsport’s James Moffat.
The 2024 Trans Am season kicks off from February 9-11 at Sandown Raceway, as part of the Shannons SpeedSeries.

“The revised class structure is set to make both classes more competitive than ever before,” said Sattler.
“Combined with the Young Gun Award we recently announced, Trans Am is offering up some great incentives to a wide range of experience levels in 2024. The Pro-Am drivers are more than capable, as we saw with Scutella finishing sixth overall last year, and will be right on the heels of the outright drivers.
“There’s a lot of interest around the series, and we’ve got some exciting drivers locked in already,” concluded Sattler.
