The Trans-Am series was formed at the dawn of the pony car era, it dates back to 1966 when its’ goal was to crown a manufacturer as a champion. Later a driver’s championship was added to show further success. The series then split in to two classes in 1976-1979 seasons, crowning champions in both classes. This is truly an American sports car series, featuring high horsepower V8s and exceptional driving skills. With this rich history, today Trans Am continues its legacy with up-to-date cars, engines and body styles.
