Braselton, GA (November 17, 2020) – Martin “Raggi” Ragginger will be returning to the top tier class in the Trans Am Series Presented by Pirelli this weekend to debut the Gin Amade Chevy Camaro by Burtin Racing. This is the first time that the Austrian driver has competed in the series since setting the pole at Road America in 2017 for team owner Claudio Burtin.

“It’s Trans Am! Where else can you race the best American muscle cars door to door and wheel to wheel? I’ve been watching the series on the live stream from Europe all year and I’ve been aching to get back in a TA car, even if it is only for a couple races.” said Martin Ragginger when asked how he felt about his return to Trans Am. “I always look forward to racing for Claudio (Burtin) and his crew is the best there is. I cannot wait to show off the Gin Amade Camaro on the track as the brand prepares to launch in North America.”

“It’s really good to add Gin Amade to the Burtin Racing/Auto Playhouse Camaro and to have Martin (Ragginger) back for a couple of races, he was such an asset when we ran the Rolex 24 and he’s shown what he can do in a TA car at Mid-Ohio and Road America back in 2017.” said team owner Claudio Burtin. “With everything we have planned for 2021, there’s going to be no shortage of stuff to do. We’ve been working hard all year and it’s finally all coming together.”

Burtin Racing and Claudio Burtin have a full plate between now and the start of next year. By the turn of the year, Burtin will have moved his 25,000 square foot Burtin Racing/Auto Playhouse headquarters to a 63,000 square foot facility to expand the race team and Auto Playhouse operations as well as to house his next iteration of polymer products under the Burtin Polymer Innovations brand.

You can follow Burtin Racing live at Road Atlanta on November 21 & 22, 2020 by downloading the Trans Am Presented by Pirelli app in the Apple AppStore or Google Play Store here:
