February 15, 2017
MIAMI, Fla. [February 15, 2017] -- The Trans Am Race Company (TARC) has announced a partnership with Heacock Classic, now the Official Insurance Sponsor of the Trans Am Series, presented by Pirelli.
“We’re very excited to have Heacock onboard for the 2017 Trans Am Championship,” said John Clagett President of TARC. “On top of Heacock’s insurance programs specifically for racers and race cars, we feel our two companies are a great fit. In Trans Am fans and competitors you have a core demographic that are car lovers--some who are collectors, others who just have a single heirloom that’s been in their family for generations—either way, Heacock is a perfect solution for them and a welcome member of the Trans Am paddock.”
Heacock brings with it nearly three decades of experience in tailoring specialty insurance programs for antique, classic, exotic, and race vehicles. Heacock is a recognized national leader in the Collector Vehicle Insurance business and is ready to tackle the challenges of the fiercely loyal Trans Am demographic and their legions of American muscle cars.
“Heacock Classic is proud to be a part of the Trans Am family,” Pete Doriguzzi, Program Director, shared. “For many of us, Trans Am is the heart and soul of road racing in America. Being associated with Trans Am reminds us of our roots at Sebring, one of America’s first road courses. We look forward to another exciting year of racing in the Trans Am series.”
Heacock will be in attendance for multiple Trans Am events throughout the year and available to discuss coverages for race cars, race teams, as well as classic, exotic and collector vehicles through their preferred insurance packages.
