Aus­tralian Tour­ing Car Cham­pi­onship round win­ner Char­lie O’Brien has claimed his maiden Aus­tralian Trans-Am Se­ries ti­tle in dom­i­nant fash­ion.

The ex-HDT driver won the Queens­land-based se­ries with a round to spare, so tossed the keys to the Pon­tiac Fire­bird he drove to the ti­tle to nephew Shan­non for the fi­nale.

Shan­non O’Brien duly won the fi­nal race of the sea­son at a soggy Queens­land Race­way in Novem­ber.

That event saw an­other tour­ing car vet­eran, John English, win his first round of 2015 and his first aboard his new yel­low Fire­bird.

Keep­ing it in the fam­ily, English’s son Sean won the ‘5 Litre Se­ries’ ti­tle at that same event.

Craig Har­ris (Ford Mus­tang) and Ian Palmer (Plymouth Cuda) were sec­ond and third in the se­ries re­spec­tively.

The first round of the 2016 Aus­tralian Trans-Am se­ries will be at Lake­side Park over the weekebd of March 19-20.
