Trans Am racing was pioneered in the USA back in the 1960s and is one of the most enduring forms of motorsport anywhere in the world.

The current evolution of the series caters for modern V8-powered, rear-wheel drive muscle cars that feature iconic makes such as Ford Mustangs, Chevrolet Camaros and Dodge Challengers.

Using a cost-effective common chassis and components across all makes, the Trans Am formula offers big performance and exciting, close racing.

In January 2020, the Australian Racing Group secured a landmark multi-year agreement with the Trans Am Race Company that sees ARG hold the commercial, promotional and marketing rights for all official Trans Am marks, including Trans Am (TA1) and Trans Am 2 (TA2) both in Australia and New Zealand.

The purpose of the new arrangement will see ARG, owners of the Category Management Agreement with Motorsport Australia (CAMS), use the USA-based Trans Am brand to create a National Series that will elevate the status of TA2 in Australasia to new heights.
