ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. (Feb. 18, 2021) – Not at Sebring (Fla.) International Raceway this weekend for the Trans Am Series presented by Pirelli season opener? Not a problem.

“Trans Am has some of the best racing around and the Trans Am by Pirelli Racing App brings it directly to our fans,” said Lagasse, who is running the full TA2 schedule in 2021 with an eye on the championship. “Streaming is becoming more and more prevalent and Trans Am has been at the forefront of this technology. It’s a great product and an excellent way for our fans to take a deep dive into what we’re experiencing inside the racecar.”

Live scoring, in-race highlights, post-race highlights, full-race replays, race results and series, team and driver news augment the livestream.
