The Trans Am by Pirelli Esports Championship journeyed back in time Saturday, staging Round 7 of the virtual championship on a resurrected Bridgehampton Race Circuit.
The trip was a walk down memory lane for fans as the field of talented racers delivered Trans Am’s signature action-packed racing that saw close competition through the field on the Long Island circuit that played host to Trans Am in the 1970s.
