WE could also have a 2.0 liter category as well that raced at the same time.

Cars must have production body panels, and hard points for suspension must be in the same locations as stock. Drop the minimum weight of the 5.0 liter cars to 3000 lbs and the minimum weight of the 2.0 liter cars to 1600 lbs.

There would be a spec tire everybody would have to run.

The season would be a series of north and south American tracks so Canada and Mexico can get some time as well. Maybe have an endurance race in the middle and end of the season for extra points.
Funny how Europe and Australia have done the original Trans Am better justice than the actual Trans Am Series. And the current Trans Am series has so much potential but they only play to a small crowd. Silhouettes should never be limited to one type of engine. They should let the Turbos play.
