New tyre deal for Trans Am

HOOSIER will remain the control tyre supplier for the National Trans Am Series after inking a new multi-year deal.

The cross-ply Hoosier rubber is also used in the TA2 Muscle Car Series, allowing for competitors to easily hop between the rival categories, and is supplied in Australia via Max Dumesny Motorsport.

The renewed arrangement continues a relationship which sees fellow Australian Racing Group-promoted categories S5000 and Touring Car Masters run Hoosier tyres.

“The extension of Trans Am’s deal with Hoosier was a logical step for our category,” said ARG chief operating officer Liam Curkpatrick.

“Hoosier has been a tremendous supporter of Trans Am, Touring Car Masters and S5000, so I’m pleased that the relationship will continue for the next few years.

“The 2023 Trans Am Series is shaping up as the most competitive on record.

“There are some great drivers and teams involved now and we are looking forward to seeing how the season pans out.”

Added Mitch Dumesny of Hoosier: “It’s great to further solidify our tyre supply deal with the Australian Racing Group that will see Hoosier remain as the sole tyre supplier for Trans Am on a multi-year arrangement.

“Trans Am is a great category. It has enjoyed amazing growth over the past few years and we are proud to have been a part of its since its inception in Australia.

“These tyres are a perfect match for the Trans Am cars. The price point is suited to all competitors and the way they work with the cars to make the racing exciting, it all adds to the formula to make the class exciting.”

A new-look Trans Am field will feature the likes of James Moffat and Jaylyn Robotham this season.
