All the planning, hard work and testing finished it was time for the the TA2 cars to join Thailand’s Super Series for their inaugural race at the Sepang Circuit Malaysia March 30 -April 1 on a very hot and humid day.
With 7 cars starting the races these 2 door modified Trans Am cars, Dodge Challenger, Mustang, Camaro were always going to be a welcome and exciting addition to the Super Series.
The Cayman GT4’s led off the grid for this 30 minute race, but it didn’t take long for the monsters of the track in the form of car number 88 Craig Corless storming to the front after just lap 4, showing all the raw power these cars have to offer. The Porsche and Toyota were no match for the grunt and power of the TA2.
As the race unfolded it was a duel between car 88 Craig Corliss and car 6 Philip Massoud . Midway through the race Craig got a little hot into a corner and slipped off the track, leaving him down the field. Philip Massoud car 6 was handed the lead followed closely by the Porsche and Toyota. But after a mighty effort Craig managed to fight his way back up to 3rd, Philip Massoud after a solid drive was able to hold off the car in second position of Manat Kulapalanont Toyota car 37 to finish in top spot.
It was a great start to the season for all the Ta2 cars and I’m sure everybody is looking forward to round 2 of the Thailand Super Series at the Chang International Circuit in Buriram on the weekend of 2-3rd June.
