Trans-Am Series Adds Autobahn Date to 2010 Schedule

TOPEKA, Kan. (March 10, 2010) -- SCCA Pro Racing and Autobahn Country Club announced today that the SCCA Pro Racing Trans-Am Series will make its inaugural appearance to the Joliet, Ill. track for Round Seven of the 2010 series calendar.

The Trans-Am Series becomes a featured event on the Mazda-organized July 30-Aug. 1 weekend, which also includes a host of series in the Mazda racing developmental ladder.

"Autobahn and Mazda worked together to set the foundation in 2009 for a great event," SCCA Pro Racing President and CEO Robert Wildberger said. "We're excited to take the Trans-Am Series to the Chicago area, which has long been a central location for great series competitors."

"The revitalized Trans-Am Series is a perfect addition to our professional racing weekend," Autobahn Country Club President Mark Basso said. "Trans-Am is an iconic series in North America and we can't wait to see the ground pounding, 800-horsepower cars hit the track."

In addition to the traditional Trans-Am Series cars, the race will include a second class of vehicles called "Pro STO" for SCCA Club Racing Super Touring O class cars.

The addition of the Autobahn round brings the 2010 event total to nine, with the season finale still to be announced.
