Bathurst to host Trans Am 100

Andrew van Leeuwen

The V8-powered series, run by the Australian Racing Group, will use a three-race format for its standalone Bathurst debut at the International.

The finale will be a 16-lap feature race known as the Trans Am 100, based on the NASCAR 100 that was held at Mount Panorama back in 1998.

A perpetual trophy for the Trans Am 100 is currently being designed.

“Some circuits around Australia try and promote ‘hero’ events, but no place can do it quite like Mount Panorama,” said ARG boss Matt Braid.

“The Trans Am 100 at Bathurst will be the jewel in the crown of local and international Trans Am competition and will be a big feature of the inaugural Bathurst International.
