Historic Trans Am
Historic Trans AM
Considered by many fans to be the ultimate American road racing series. The early years of the SCCA’s Trans Am pitted true production cars, race prepared with factory technology, championship competitiveness and world class professional drivers racing against local hero’s. Watkins Glen, Daytona, Mid-Ohio, Sears Point, Laguna, Lime Rock, Bridgehampton. The race tracks where the Trans Am competed during the late 60’s and the early 70’s hosted a time in American racing history many consider to be the Camelot of factory muscle car competition.
