Graham Sattler, Trans Am Category Manager
“Race Sandown marks the start of a tremendous TV deal, which sees the incredible action of the Trans Am field live and free for all to see,” said Sattler.
“It’s fantastic to have our qualifying as part of the 7plus coverage, which has always been a hotly contested part of the weekend – and now boosted by the Hoosier Pole Award. To have two races on 7mate is a massive win for the category, and we’re hoping both new and existing fans alike will be captivated by the racing.
“Everything is coming together to create an incredible start to our 2024 season,” concluded Sattler.
