TRANS AM TO FIGHT IN MOTORSPORT’S VERSION OF STATE OF ORIGIN AT BASKERVILLE

A State of Origin concept will be used as part of the Baskerville event in the recently announced ‘Festival of Motorsport,’ round out the 2020/21 Australian Racing Group season.

The new concept is poised to pit Tasmania’s best race drivers against their mainland counterparts in the mighty V8-powered Trans Am machines.

The Baskerville Trans Am races will be non-championship, giving the State of Origin races their own unique feel.

“Apart from being the TCR series finale, the big event is going to be the State of Origin motorsport for Trans Am,” said Barry Rogers, who has been instrumental in the creation of the back-to-back Tasmanian races at Symmons Plains and Baskerville.

“When we raced our Supercars down there at Symmons Plains, the passion and support is strong, you just find the enthusiasm and love of motorsport is a real passion that they have.

“To bring the S5000s, the TCRs and Trans Ams to Symmons Plains, and having a key marquee event finalised on Australia Day will be very special for that area.

“Also, the Trans Am event will be a special way to end the year.”

More details on the State of Origin Trans Am races at Baskerville will be revealed in due course.
