This weekend’s Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix will see the return of the Trans Am Series to the streets of Detroit for the first time in 50 years. Like IndyCar, ‘America’s Road Racing Series’ is in for a double header weekend, with races scheduled on both Saturday and Sunday.
Three Trans Am classes will duke it out in Detroit: the thunderous TA cars, the still-fast-but-not-quite-as-fast TA2 pony cars and the production-based TA4 cars. The series says the three classes will together “create a unique show full of Camaros, Mustangs, Challengers and Corvettes,” which will be very much at home on the 2.36-mile Belle Isle circuit.
Unlike IMSA and IndyCar, however, Trans Am doesn’t have a deal to air races live. That means the only way to see these American icons race is by buying a ticket to an event like the Belle Isle GP, or waiting until the race is re-aired on CBS on July 2nd. Trans Am also provides live timing and scoring on their website and will have live updates available through their Twitter feed.
Excited for race weekend yet?
