Todd Hazelwood Joins Trans Am Field
Todd Hazelwood has announced that he will contest the 2024 National Trans Am Series, competing for TFH Racing.
Hazelwood is a highly credentialed racer, with 100 starts in Supercars competition and a 2017 triumph in Super2. Sandown will mark Hazelwood’s first appearance in Trans Am, for which he recently completed a test day at Queensland Raceway.
The 28-year-old lines up for TFH Racing, who made their category debut in 2023 with Josh Thomas. The Queensland based tea have rapidly expanded, and the signing of Hazelwood signifies their intention to compete at the front of the Trans Am field.
“The Trans Am Series has provided exciting and action-packed racing in previous years and I’m looking forward to the challenge of getting used to these fun and wild race cars,” said Hazelwood.
“We’ve been working hard since the end of last year to put this program together and I’m feeling comfortable and confident behind the wheel all thanks to the hard work from the crew at TFH Racing.
“Brett Thomas and I are both super competitive by nature and want to succeed. Hopefully our preparation will put us in a good position for success during round one at Sandown this weekend. We’ve already done a day and a half worth of testing and I’m learning more and more about the driving style required and the sensitivity of setup changes. I have no doubt that we will get more and more competitive as we learn more and I’m excited to see what we can achieve!
“Kicking off the Trans Am series at Sandown this weekend is also the perfect warm up as I prepare to jump back into the Supercars seat at round one at Bathurst. It’s going to be a very busy month ahead and I cannot wait to go racing for the first time in 2024.
“A special thank you must go to Brett and his team at TFH Hire for making this whole opportunity possible. I’m looking forward to a fun and enjoyable year ahead,” concluded Hazelwood.
Hazelwood will take on the likes of James Moffat, Tim Slade and James Golding when the season kicks off from February 9-11 at Sandown Raceway as part of the Shannons SpeedSeries.
All the action will be live and free on the Seven Network, with races one and three shown on 7mate.
