Super2 race winner joins Trans Am influx

YET another driver with Supercars experience is joining the 2024 National Trans Am Series, with Jordan Boys signing for The Racing Academy.

A Super2 race winner, Boys has contested the past two editions of the Repco Bathurst 1000 with Brad Jones Racing.

With the S5000 category parked at least for now, Boys has turned to Trans Am to keep his eye in.

“I’m excited to go racing for the start of the National Trans Am Series with The Racing Academy,” he said.

“I’ve been watching the category for a while and wanting to go racing in these cars for a few years, so it’s exciting to have that opportunity now.

“The racing at the front is always extremely close and it’s entertaining to watch, I can’t wait to get amongst it as a driver.

“Thanks to The Racing Academy, Dynamic Supplies and Joss Group, for making it happen and I’m counting down to that first race at Sandown.”

Boys will have BJR Super2 recruit Elliott Cleary for a teammate, the teenager re-signed by The Racing Academy.

“We’re looking to just build on last year, I’ve got a brilliant relationship with all these guys on the team,” said Cleary.

“If we can continue our form from the end of the year, I believe we’ll be in a good position to fight at the front.

“I really enjoyed it in 2023, the racing was quite intense and to have those names like (James) Moffat – and some of the new drivers coming in – makes it more exciting.

“There are some cool additions to the calendar this year, the final round will be cool and seeing these things on a street circuit I think will be the best event of the year.

“Having raced in the series last year puts us in a much better position than 12 months ago, the learning curve isn’t as steep with most of the tracks being the same so we can focus more on the speed.”

James Golding, Tim Slade and Nash Morris are among other drivers confirmed for the Trans Am season, which opens next weekend at Sandown.
