The open-ended sponsorship deal puts more focus on its product, XS Injectors, and on the racing series.
The company’s Xspurt injection is a homologated component of the TA2 Muscle Car Series and is suited to the GM LS-based small-block engine used in the series’ Ford Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro and Dodge Challenger racers. It is also suitable for street cars.
Injectors Online, which designed, developed and sells XS Injectors by Xspurt, is using the TA2 Championship to highlight the company’s product strengths.
Its managing director Simon Richards said: “XS Injectors are perfectly suited to cars that run LS engines, which is what attracted us to the TA2 Muscle Car Series – it’s a perfect alignment of products.”
The highly-regulated and cost-effective TA2 Muscle Car series restricts car weight to 1250kg including the driver and engine outputs limited to about 390kW (525hp) and 6500rpm.
“Having a local business that can supply the exact product we require, along with being able to match, set and register each injector, is the ideal way to ensure the competitors are receiving the correct spec component to keep within the category regulations,”
The six-round 2021 TA2 Muscle Car Series started last week at Sydney Motorsport Park. The second round is on April 16-18 at Morgan Park Raceway in Warwick, Queensland, followed by Winton, Victoria (June 11-13); Queensland Raceway, Ipswich (August 6-8); Wakefield, NSW (October 22-24); and The Bend in South Australia (December 3-5). There is also an invitation event planned for Bathurst for a date yet to be set.
The TA2 Muscle Car Series is the current evolution of America’s legendary Trans-Am Series which started in the 1960s.
It caters for modern V8-powered, rear-wheel-drive muscle cars. The TA2 car comprises a purpose-built space-frame Howe Racing Enterprises chassis and a controlled GM Motorsport engine package developing 525hp to ensure a level playing field for competitors.
