ARG, Trans Am and Hoosier sign new multi-year tyre arrangement

The Australian Racing Group is pleased to confirm a new multi-year control tyre supply deal with famous American racing brand Hoosier Tires.

The deal will see all cars in the National Trans Am Series compete on the unique cross ply Hoosier tyre for the upcoming seasons.

Since the category’s inception in Australia – both Trans Am and TA2 categories – the class has solely competed on Hoosier tyres.

The new deal with Trans Am means that it will continue to align with the TA2 Muscle Car Series, ensuring a simple crossover for competitors in both classes.

Hoosier Tires are distributed in Australia through Max Dumesny Motorsport.

“It’s great to further solidify our tyre supply deal with the Australian Racing Group that will see Hoosier remain as the sole tyre supplier for Trans Am on a multi year arrangement,” Dumsney said.

“Trans Am is a great category. It has enjoyed amazing growth over the past few years and we are proud to have been a part of its since its inception in Australia.

“These tyres are a perfect match for the Trans Am cars. The price point is suited to all competitors and the way they work with the cars to make the racing exciting, it all adds to the formula to make the class exciting.”

The tyres are one of the unique to the class, promoting more driver input that produces an entertaining on track product.

The new deal between ARG and Hoosier continues a multi-category relationship that also includes the popular Gulf Western Oil Touring Car Masters class and the S5000 Australian Drivers’ Championship.

Australian Racing Group Chief Operating Officer Liam Curkpatrick was thrilled with the news

“The extension of Trans Am’s deal with Hoosier was a logical step for our category,” Curkpatrick said.

“Hoosier has been a tremendous supporter of Trans Am, Touring Car Masters and S5000, so I’m pleased that the relationship will continue for the next few years.

“The 2023 Trans Am Series is shaping up as the most competitive on record. There are some great drivers and teams involved now and we are looking forward to seeing how the season pans out.”
