The Australian TA2 series has confirmed its format for its mountain debut at the Bathurst International in November.
The series will run three-races over the weekend with the finale being a 16-lap, 100km affair reminiscent of the one-off NASCAR event that functioned as a support category for the 1998 Bathurst 1000.
“Some circuits around Australia try and promote ‘hero’ events, but no place can do it quite like Mount Panorama,” said Australian racing Group boss Matt Braid.
“The Trans Am 100 at Bathurst will be the jewel in the crown of local and international Trans Am competition and will be a big feature of the inaugural Bathurst International.
“ARG understands that the current situation around the world will prohibit elements of any event, which we feel will make the inaugural Trans Am 100 a great opportunity for local entrants to maximise their time around the best race track in the country.
“Having these iconic American muscle car brands really speaks to the ‘International’ component of the event, and we can’t wait to see these big cars tackle the Mountain.”
A perpetual trophy for the victor of the inaugural Trans Am 100 is currently in the process of being designed.
This inaugural Bathurst International is slated to be contested over four days with TCR Australia, S5000 and the rescheduled Bathurst 6 Hour all set to feature on the programme.
