The TA2 Muscle Car Series is the current evolution of America’s legendary Trans-Am Series which started in the 1960s. TA2 caters for modern V8-powered, rear-wheel drive muscle cars that are filling dealership showrooms across the US and Australia.

The TA2 car is made up of a purpose-built space-frame Howe Racing Enterprises chassis and a controlled GM Motorsport engine package developing 525 horsepower, this ensures a level playing field across the board for great racing.

The TA2 Muscle Car Series formula has risen to prominence, with 40+ grids globally of Ford Mustangs, Chevrolet Camaros and Dodge Challengers, drawing its international success from:
• Focus on cost control
• Driver talent
• Strict regulations
• Promotion of close competition


TA2 is based on a relevant, practical and purposeful racing platform that highlights driver talent and promotes close competition.

Designed, built and tuned with only one thing in mind —performance. The TA2 Muscle Car Series formula is built on a cost effective platform, combining the prowess of a purpose-built racing chassis and a 525 horsepower engine package that causes every head in the paddock to turn and take notice.

At 1250kg and over 525hp there is no other car that can compare to the performance of these cars in their price range.

This formula allows drivers to use their skill behind the wheel, not the money spent on the engine, to set them apart and propel them to the top of the pack.

The TA2 race car is a purpose-built racing machine. With engines restricted to 525 horsepower, longevity is promoted while not sacrificing performance. While the TA2 race car is built on a cost effective platform, it still produces speeds that are more than capable of raising eyebrows.
