New Title Sponsor for Abbate in New TA2 Mustang
February 23, 2022
The 2022 Trans Am National Tour Championship Series presented by Pirelli kicks off this weekend with the season opener Sebring International Raceway in Florida and driver Michele Abbate has big news!
In December it was announced that Abbate will be making a full season effort in the National Tour series with the BC Race Cars team. In addition, she will be driving a brand new Howe chassis TA2 Ford Mustang powered by the Katech engine package.
“I am so excited to be equipped with the best of everything this year; including the team, the equipment, and my sponsors. I have worked so hard my entire journey through motorsports and it’s truly rewarding to have this massive opportunity finally come together all at once”, Michele shared.
Ghost Energy has signed as Michele’s title sponsor for the 2022 season and is represented on the liveries on both the brand new Mustang prepped by BC Race Cars, as well as her Grr Racing prepped Chevy Camaro.
Abbate will race the #30 Ghost Energy/BC Race Car Mustang in the Trans Am National Tour and use the #30 Ghost Energy/Grr Racing Camaro in other events
“This title partnership with Ghost Energy and Ghost Lifestyle truly is a dream come true. As an athlete that stands behind all of their products it is an honor to be their first professional driver in the motorsports industry. I couldn’t be more proud and grateful to continue our partnership into the Trans Am National Tour Championship series and represent Ghost on and off the track,” Michele explained.
Michele has also re-signed with long time partners:
