The Trans Am presented by Pirelli Series has revealed new class names for their growing production-based classes. The SuperGT Class (SGT) – formerly TA3 – and the GT Class (GT) – formerly TA4 – are now aligned name-wise with other “GT” series and classes in North America.
WorldSBK Testing Concludes with Bautista the Man to Beat in Australia
WorldSBK season begins at Phillip Island Feb. 22-24
Álvaro Bautista (Aruba.it Racing – Ducati) stormed to the top of the timesheets again on Tuesday at Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit with a best lap of 1’30.303, a whole 0.440 seconds faster than his best from the previous day and nearly half a second quicker than four-time world champion Jonathan Rea (Kawasaki Racing Team WorldSBK), fourth fastest at the Aussie racetrack.
If 11 hours and more than 8,000 miles of on-track testing over two days showed anything, it’s that the NTT IndyCar Series fits in marvelously at Circuit of the Americas and the competition will be deep and intense in the 2019 season.
