• Adam Andretti reunites with Burtin Racing to drive the team’s Chassis #1 at Sebring International Raceway
  • Andretti finished second in the TA class at Sebring last year and qualified second in his last race with the team at Indianapolis last summer
  • Chassis #1 most recently took a podium at VIRginia International Raceway in October with Martin Ragginger behind the wheel
  • Claudio Burtin drove Chassis #1 at the Hoosier SCCA Super Tour event at Sebring in January, testing with 3D-printed Goodyear race tires

Burtin Racing will make its return to the Trans Am National Championship this weekend at Sebring International Raceway for the season-opening Sebring SpeedTour. Adam Andretti will drive the #17 Top Liner Chevrolet Camaro, Burtin Racing’s revolutionary development Chassis #1, in a bid to start the season on top of the podium.

Burtin Racing chassis #1 made waves in the TA class last October at VIRginia International Raceway with Martin Ragginger, who drove it to a second-place finish from third on the grid in his first start of the season. Ragginger served as the primary test driver for the car, while Andretti and racing icons Boris Said and Andy Lally have also turned test laps in the car.

Research and development work has been crucial to the chassis, and the Burtin entry has undergone extensive work in preparation for the new season. As part of the balance between proven aerodynamic development and years of mechanical data, the car has undergone close to 50 wind tunnel tests. Earlier this year, Claudio Burtin tested the car at the Hoosier SCCA Super Tour event at Sebring, running revolutionary 3D printed Goodyear race tires and topping the time sheets in practice. Merging that data and the added track time at Sebring with the existing data from Trans Am’s Pirelli tires gives the team an added optimism going into the race.

Andretti, meanwhile, gives the team a strong chance to come out on top in the opener. He excelled in the opening round at Sebring last year, coming from sixth on the starting grid to finish second. He reunites with Burtin Racing after a one-off appearance at Indianapolis Motor Speedway last summer, where he qualified second in his only other TA start of the 2023 season.

The Sebring SpeedTour kicks off the 12-race Trans Am National Championship for 2024 with three days of on-track action for the TA class. On Friday, drivers will have a pair of optional test sessions at 11:10AM and 3PM before Saturday’s practice (10:45AM) and qualifying (4:40PM). On Sunday, the season will go green at 11:15AM with 27 laps or 75 minutes of race action. Click here to purchase tickets to this weekend’s race, and click here to follow along with live timing.
