New York, NEW YORK - January 8, 2021 - Since its inception in 1966, some of the greatest names in motorsports have participated in Trans Am and the Series itself has grown and evolved tremendously over the years. There is now a clear pyramid among the various classes, from the production car based GT cars through the XGT performance sports cars to the massively competitive TA2 Class with the 850bhp TA Class at the pinnacle.
Having cut his teeth in 2019, 2020 saw New York based Adrian Wlostowski run his first full season in the enhanced Super GT Class, running a Hawk Performance Ford Mustang and the No. 96 car was competitive throughout the season. In 2021 Adrian is taking a step up the ladder with a move into TA2, and if he performs anything like as well as he did in the SGT Class, the rest of the pack will have a fight on their hands.
Adrian gave notice of his championship intentions with a podium P3 finish in the opening race of the 2020 SGT season at Sebring International Raceway. He subsequently only missed out on the podium twice in the whole year. His final points total of 245 was just 7 shy of the top spot but means Adrian will be honored at the online Gala on January 10 with the runner-up medal.
We spoke to Adrian about the season last week and he clearly enjoyed himself in his first full season, "I think Trans Am did an amazing job with getting as full a program and a lot of racing. We battled all the way to the line and had some great adventures along the way. Of course, I'd rather be picking up the Championship at Sunday’s gala but we are proud of our effort and grateful to our amazing partners, Hawk Performance and Forgeline Wheels.”
In addition to the usual plaudits across the various classes, there are additional awards where fans can participate. Get your vote in here and support F.A.S.T.: https://bit.ly/351H2kX
Adrian went on to comment, "It's great to be part of the Trans Am family and now we are working hard with preparations for the move on to TA2. Sebring is little more than six weeks away so we've got our work cut out getting the new car not just ready, but competitive. It's a big step up but we're ready for it."
