Ford brings back the Mustang to Supercars

Ford brings back the Mustang to Supercars

"Next generation Fiesta ST customers will benefit from innovations developed by Ford Performance for the Ford GT supercar and Focus RS hot hatchback, including high power EcoBoost and Drive Mode technologies", said Dave Pericak, global director, Ford Performance.

It will be the first time the Mustang races in the Cup Series, as Ford's three prior bodies were the Thunderbird, the Taurus and now the Fusion.

While other engine configurations are eligible under the Gen2 regulations, the Mustang will continue to use the current 5.0-litre naturally-aspirated V8.

"We're proud to announce that Ford Australia, with our Ford Performance global team, is working with DJR Team Penske and Tickford Racing to homologate Mustang for 2019", said Ford Australia president and CEO Graeme Whickman.

Ford has six organizations and 13 teams in its NASCAR lineup, including Wood Brothers Racing, Roush Fenway Racing, Team Penske, Stewart-Haas Racing, Front Row Motorsports and Go Fas Racing.

IT'S official: the Ford Mustang is coming back to the Supercars Championship in 2019.

While the new Ford Fiesta ST has been confirmed for our market, the core models of the next-generation light hatch are unlikely to come Down Under.

IShares MSCI Brazil Small-Cap (EWZS) Declines 1.32% for April 15

Dick Johnson, co-owner of DJR Team Penske, added, "Throughout the entire history of this team, we've never run anything but a Ford, and this announcement today is fantastic". In an environment of relatively flat sports auto sales to women, Ford research shows a 10 per cent gain in women buying Mustang in the last five years.

While Australian touring cars may seem a world away from our BTCC, perhaps the best news to take from this is a sustained commitment from Ford to motorsport.

"We did look at other vehicles when we first thought about this, well before we even engaged with the teams or the series, but the Mustang is the right fit and its credentials in terms of the V8 are very, very strong".

"The world loves Ford Mustang", says Erich Merkle, Ford sales analyst.

With the 2018 standing now dominated by the ZB Commodore, Roger Penske, co-owner of DJR Team Penske believes their re-engineered Mustang will see Ford rise to dominance once more.
