Previous Form a Strong Booster for Holdsworth in Tasmania

Brett Holdsworth enters into his first full season of Trans Am, following on from two COVID disrupted campaigns however he is buoyed by his pace last season when the series visited the Symmons Plains circuit.

In 2021, Holdsworth picked up a podium and was on track for a second in the final race before a brake failure. It was his best round of the limited season he contested. A change to professional and experienced Ashley Seward Motorsport coupled with an increased testing programme has further boosted his confidence.

So far in his Trans Am career, when Holdsworth has finished the race, he has always been inside the top 10 with just three DNF’s hampering a 100 percent top 10 record.

“Last year at Symmons Plains we qualified fourth and had top three pace all weekend until the brakes let go in the final race and I ended up 300 metres deep in the kitty litter,” said Holdsworth.

“I have a better understanding of the car now and being with the ASM crew gives me plenty of confidence as they know how to set up a fast car.

“In previous years I didn’t do too much testing, so I feel much better prepared heading into this season. I should definitely be quicker this year, but so will everyone else.

“Thanks to Breeze Holiday Parks for coming on board for this year, it’s been a massive contributor to our increased preparation to begin 2022.

“I tested with the ASM crew at Winton a couple of weeks ago and that was a really fruitful day, I’ve definitely made some gains in my understanding of the car. Hopefully it translates to the track,” concluded Holdsworth.

Holdsworth will be on track from February 11-13, with Saturday and Sunday’s action broadcast live and on demand on Stan Sport.
