The Trans Am championships were hugely popular in the 1960’s and 70’s. Racing production cars at road circuits, from one end of the United States to the other, attracted large fields and big crowds. To my mind it was the heyday of road racing in America. It is a little known fact that small, under 2 liter cars (U2 class), were used in the American Trans Am series during the 1960’s. Most people think it was a series for the V8’s (O2 class).
Makes such as Porsche, BMW, Volvo, SAAB, BMC. Datsun, Fiat and Alfa were widely used amongst the Chev’s, Fords, Plymouths and Dodges. The 1968 Championship was actually won by Tony Adamowicz in a Porsche 911S. This mod also includes the 1966 Championship dominating Alfa GTA of Horst Kwech.
We haven’t been able to supply all the cars, but here is a pretty good selection. Chevrolet Camaro SS, Falcon Sprint, Shelby Mustang, BMC Cooper S, Alfa Romeo GTA, Lotus Cortina and the Abarth 1000TC. As more cars become available we intend to add to this mod.
You can race either class in single races separately, or together, using the Historic Trans Am Menu. The Mod also contains 6 Championships which you will find listed in the OFFICIAL section. These are combined O2 and U2 events with points awarded for each class. There are 3 Championship Seasons of 8 races: consisting of 40 laps with a final round for each season of 60 laps. 2 Sprint Championships with 11 races of 10 laps. And finally an Endurance Championship of 12 rounds with races of 65 laps.
You will find in your Historic Trans Am folder a word document with links to all the tracks required.
This Mod is completely standalone.
Also includes the rear gear mod by RMI & GTL Workshop.
This will overwrite the gtr2ui.mnu but a back up has been included. Just rename the backup_gtr2ui.mnu by removing the backup_. The back up file along with a read me will be found in your GTR2\UIData folder.
Extract to your Main GTR2 folder and enjoy the wonderful days of 1960’s Trans Am.

Here is an update for the Trans Am mod by Kiwisteve and myself.
It addresses a few small issues :
* Tail Light lenses for the Mustangs
* Exhaust position for the Falcon.
* Interior mirror for the RHD Alfa’s
* Pit fuel settings for all cars.
