THE Turtle Wax Trans Am Series will take in six rounds but a total of seven events in 2022.

The series will support every round of the TCR Australia Series, with next year’s champion crowned after the sixth round at Sandown in September.

However, the non-points ‘Trans Am 100’ will return to the card of the Bathurst International to end its season in November.

“With over 70 cars in the country now and even more on the way, this class is no longer a sleeping giant,” Australian Racing Group CEO Matt Braid said.

“This six-round calendar for 2022 gives the competitors a balanced and rounded series, with events in all three eastern seaboard states, plus Tasmania, and two races at Mount Panorama – one for series points and one at the Supercheap Auto Bathurst International.

“There is a lot to be excited in the world of Trans Am, and the 2022 calendar is just the start of an exciting future on the national racing scene.”

Series title sponsor Turtle Wax will also back a Best Presented Team award at each event of the 2022 season, with each winner receiving a prize of $500 cash and a car care product pack courtesy of Turtle Wax and Selleys.
