What Is The Trans Am Series?

The Trans Am Series was founded in 1966 and is a sports car racing series held in North America. It is sanctioned by the Sports Club Of America (SCCA). Most races are held in the United States and competitors race on various tracks with road courses and street circuits. A few different classes are run in the Trans Am Series. For silhouette racing cars, Trans-Am is split into TA and TA2 classes. For the production classes, you will have GT (Grand Touring), SGT (Super Grand Touring), XGT (Extreme Grand Touring), and the Pro/AM challenge.

Trans Am has quickly developed into a race full of practical, purposeful racing vehicles with highly skillful drivers.
