Australian National Trans Am Series Round Formats Confirmed
February 10, 2023
Extra races for the rounds at Sydney Motorsport Park and Queensland Raceway will ensure more racing for the National Trans Am Series competitors in 2023.
Joining the previously announced Trans Am 100 events at Winton and the Supercheap Auto Bathurst International, the extra races at two rounds on the schedule provide further track time for Australia’s fastest growing national category.
The formats for the opening round at AWC Race Tasmania, Phillip Island and Sandown remain the same as what has been held during previous season, consisting of two 25-minute races and a 30-minute finale alongside two practice sessions and qualifying.
Winton and the Supercheap Auto Bathurst International events consist of the 100km finale in addition to twin 25-minute races prior as well as the regular qualifying and practice sessions.
The new format for 2023 of four 25-minute races will feature at Queensland Raceway and Sydney Motorsport Park where it is expected large fields will contest these two events. Following last year’s successful inclusion as a night event, Sydney Motorsport Park is set to again replicate this with the National Trans Am Series racing into the twilight.
The opening round at AWC Race Tasmania will feature a strong driver line-up headlined by Tim Slade, Jaylyn Robotham and James Moffat joining the likes of Ben Grice, Elliot Barbour, Brett Holdsworth, Jett Johnson and more for the first event at Symmons Plains.

“Adding further races at Queensland Raceway and Sydney Motorsport Park gives more value to the competitors and gives more racing for the fans.
“It further enhances National Trans Am’s upward trend, which is a credit to the competitors and we're eagerly looking forward to the season ahead.”
