Trans Am

Pirelli is to equip one of the most evocative names in auto racing – the Trans Am Championship – as the official tire supplier and presenting sponsor. Founded in 1966 and split into a variety of classes, is based on raceway-bred versions of sporting road cars similar to those offered in auto dealerships all over the country, reinforcing Pirelli’s connection between road and track.

Pirelli will supply purpose-built P Zero racing tires specifically created to respond to the unique needs and dynamics of Trans Am race cars. This process has been delivered thanks to an in-depth research and testing program from Pirelli’s engineers together with the Trans Am’s top teams and drivers.

As well as the 875-horsepower top grand touring class, Trans Am also includes the production-derived TA3 and TA4 classes, which are even closer to the sporting cars that can be driven on the road. For these, Pirelli will supply P Zero racing tires that have close links to the P Zero road tires that are homologated as original equipment by 80 per cent of the world’s leading premium and prestige car manufacturers. The result is a bespoke performance tire that is nonetheless durable and encourages close competition.
