Saleen S7 LM and S7R


The S7R race version has won at every major racetrack in the world, including Daytona, Sebring, Nurburgring, and the prestigious 24 Hours of Le Mans.  The S7 LM Edition commemorates that seven-year run of consecutive racing victories of its Saleen S7 Supercar.

Steve Saleen previously announced the planned build of this extraordinary supercar.  The car unveiled at the recent LA Auto Show is the fulfillment of the first of the special edition S7 LMs.  “True to our form, we are bringing back America’s only true supercar.”

A 7.0L twin-turbo engine, rated at 1300 horsepower, will power the new S7 LM supercar. Each one is being hand built at Saleen’s Corona, CA, headquarters.  The S7 LM’s transmission is a longitudinal, 6-speed all synchromesh with limited-slip differential. It also has a metallic clutch with 8.0-inch twin-disc hydraulic actuation bow-through uprights.

The S7 LM has an all-new, exclusive Black/Silver paint scheme with clear-coated carbon fiber.  It will ride on Saleen forged, five-spoke, Le Mans-style wheel design equipped with center locking wheel nuts with automatic safety locks.  Fronts are sized at 19 X 9.5-inches with rears at 20 X 12.0-inches.  These sleek, stylish wheels will be shod with high-performance tires: 275/30/ZR19 front and 335/30/ZR20 rears.

The Saleen S7 LM is priced at $1,000,000,000 where only 7 will be produced.  The hottest Supercar on the planet!

Yeah, that is a reserve price and not to worry for here is a list of other S7 for sale.

Berryman Trans American at Indianapolis Motor Speedway

No. 8 Tomy Drissi for Burtin Racing
Trans Am at the Brickyard and hats off to the editing engineer for Mono set of audio, you genius.  The commentators Jonathan Green and Jake Dallenbach are coming from the left speaker (they're entertaining) and tack sound resonates from the right!  You can cancel one or the other by adjusting the speaker balance.  Thank you, Trans Am Series, nice tweak for this broadcast, down on the track!


Ernie Francis, Jr # 98 starts this race in second to the last position.  The multi-class TA, TA3 and TA4 run a 102.06-mile race around the 2.43-mile combined road course saw machinery and drivers alike battle track temperatures in excess of 140 degrees and a slick surface.

The right speaker becomes active at time stamp 4:31, nothing but track sound.  For a broadcast, that's a first!
  

TA2 Muscle Car at The Brickyard

Pony Up - Go Trans Am
This race turns into a derby and whatever part of the track you need to pass!  This will be one of the best races of the year.  The soundtrack is Stereo so no Mono on the track sound but between Jonathan and Jake, the commentary is needed for this remarkable race.  This is door to door racing, the final laps are nose to tail banging!  This is a race car, takes a beating and still makes fast laps!

2018 Trans AM TA2 at Belle Isle


Live stream from the 3-Dimensional Services Motor City Dash featuring TA2 at the Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix presented by Lear.  The reason we don't see the broadcasted race after the event is: Select Trans Am races are streamed live on Motor Trend On Demand and will be posted online roughly 30 days after the original streaming date.  I did not know this, thanks for posting that.  Well, better late than never!  Been waiting for the TA2 Belle Isle race, tight and bumpy track with unforgiving concrete walls!  Parts everywhere after impact!  Oh and this happened because the track condition was slightly damp after a rain.  I feel bad for the Crew Chief and team, you literally have to broom the parts off the track!

News from Trans AM at Belle Isle - Matos, the current TA2 points leader and driver of the No. 88 3-Dimensional Services Chevrolet Camaro, began the race in second position but overtook polesitter Gar Robinson, in the No. 74 Palate of Milford/ 74 Ranch Resort Chevrolet Camaro, on the fourth lap of the race.  Matos would lead the field through three full-course yellows over the 38-lap race and was consistently able to pull away from second position.

2018 - Trans-Am Australia TA2


From TA2 Racing:
TA2 Muscle Car Series Management was formed to operate the TA2 Muscle Car Series and to establish a competition agreement and racing entitlement policy. 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. (end TA2 Racing)


I'm going to say this until I'm blue in the face!  The Trans AM series is the best in racing today.  Come on guys, (Australia & U.S.) mic the frickin track, add some more field cameras and hide the announcer's mic!  We come for the engine sound and cars, not some swinging nut sack!  Sometimes it's better to ask for forgiveness than permission.  More full races and track sound!  Pretty Please with a Big Block on Top!

Winton Motor Raceway



Oh Boy, 1min and 21sec!


Enjoy some raw sound highlights from round three of the 2018 Performance Wheels Australian Trans-Am Series from the Two Days of Thunder at Queensland Raceway.

One can only hope for more down on the track action and full races from the Trans-Am series from Australia and here in the U.S.


What are you guys afraid of?  Being the best in the Motorsport series?  Is the budget tight?  Do a 'Crowed Fund Me', I'll help promote your Ass!  Along with others.

2018 Historic Trans Am Race


The original race cars from the Trans Am series during the heyday from 1966 to 1972.  The complete roster of cars have been painstakingly restored to their original condition.  Then driven hard, the way they were meant to be!

"The Trans Am was a no-holds-barred, highly competitive series.  We had the best American drivers, we ran on the best North American circuits, and we drove cars that were spectacular to watch and that the fans could easily identify with.  The Trans Am was the greatest road racing series that has ever been run over here." -- Parnelli Jones

The teams were at Grand Prix Long Beach, April 13 - 14 of this year.  I'll tell ya something you're in for a real treat during this broadcast, no hype narration and we can hear the cars!  The race starts to roll at the 3:40 timestamp if you can't bear to wait!  Then after or before the race go out to Historic Trans AM Roster page ( just click on the cars pic) and get ready for some real eye-candy pics on these beautiful machines, you will be drooling!

2018 INDY 500 - Phenomenal!

The 2018 INDY 500 was just phenomenal!  All the teams were at an incredible pace.

"The Greatest Spectacle in Racing"


Number 1 Man - Will Power, earned his first Indianapolis 500 victory.  Hall of Fame team owner Roger Penske, after celebrating his record 17th career Indy 500 win, conceded that Power needed some time to get used to driving on ovals.

ED Carpenter

Number 2 Man - (with Team, Family and Friends)  Only one individual in the Verizon IndyCar Series handles both the responsibility of driving the racecar and owning his own team: Ed Carpenter.  As one of the most experienced drivers in the field, 2018 will be Carpenter’s 16th season of Indy car competition.  Even now as he competes in only the oval events, the 36-year-old has 14 top-ten finishes since starting his own team and has led at least one race in each of the last ten seasons.
