February 23, 2017
PARTNER RELEASE - Camarillo, CA • February 2017 - Wilwood is excited to return to the Trans Am Series in 2017 as sponsor of the TA2 and TA4 class Rookie of the Year battle. In addition, Wilwood has added contingency support to the new West Coast Championship Rookie of the Year battle.
Both the Trans Am TA2 and TA4 classes will race the Ford Mustang, Dodge Challenger and Chevrolet Camaro. The TA2 Class platform includes high-performance, purpose-built race cars while the TA4 Class is dedicated to year-specific production-based models. New for 2017 is the West Coast Championship, a four-event series independent of the Trans Am Championship. The series commences March 25-26 at Willow Springs International Raceway in conjunction with the Sportscar Vintage Racing Association (SVRA).
“Wilwood and the Trans Am Series have shared decades of success,” said Dave Brzozowski, Race Sales Engineer at Wilwood Engineering. “We are proud to partner again in 2017 with this prestigious brand and look forward to educating drivers on how to choose the best braking solutions for their race car.”
Within both the TA2 and TA4 classes, and West Coast Championship, Wilwood will provide a $250 product certificate to both the highest finishing eligible driver and rookie after each race. At the completion of the season the Rookie of the Year from the TA2 and TA4 class will receive a complete Wilwood brake kit. The West Coast Rookie of the Year will receive a $1,500 product certificate. To be eligible, rookies must display the Wilwood contingency decal on their race car prior to participating in official on-track race activities.
