2019 Ford Mustang Supercar revealed
The 2019 Ford Mustang Supercar has been revealed ahead of its debut at the first-round of the 2019 Virgin Australia Supercars Championship in Adelaide later this month.
The Ford Mustang Supercar has been revealed ahead of its first race of the 2019 Supercar Championship. Speaking at the reveal, Kay Hart, President and CEO of Ford Australia and New Zealand, said: “This is an historic moment. To see the project come together has been incredibly exciting for everyone involved, and today marks the start of Mustang’s 2019 season. Mustang belongs on the track and everyone at Ford and our fans have been waiting for this moment.”
The Mustang Supercar has been a joint effort between Ford, Ford Performance, Shell V-Power Racing and Tickford Racing. Six Mustangs will enter the 2019 series, from three teams, with two Mustangs for Shell V-Power Racing, three Tickford Racing Mustangs and an additional Mustang for 23Red Racing.
“Today is when we show the fans what the Mustang Supercar really looks like, ready for the 2019 Virgin Australia Supercars Championship,” said Shell V-Power Racing Team Principal, Ryan Story. “This project wouldn’t have been possible without the support of Ford Australia, the Ford Asia Pacific Design studio, and the pivotal involvement of Ford Performance in the United States.”
“I’m really proud of the team in North America, and I’m really proud of the team down in Australia,” said Ford Performance Motorsports Supervisor, Brian Novak. “We use the same processes to develop the Supercar that we do the NASCAR Mustang, that we do the Mustang GT4, that we do the NHRA Funny Car Mustang. That development has been proven out through other programs – the Ford GT at Le Mans for example – and we then transfer that back, that knowledge, back to the road car.”
