First Gen3 Ford Mustang produced by a team hits the track.

01 February 2023

The Blanchard Racing Team has revealed its new Gen3 Ford Mustang following a test day at Winton Motor Raceway.

The single-car team is the first to reveal and test its own Gen3 car, with team owner Tim Blanchard and new recruit Todd Hazelwood both getting behind the wheel of the CoolDrive-backed Mustang.

“The new BRT001 in its striking CoolDrive Auto Parts colours looks amazing,” said Hazelwood.

“The team here at BRT have done a superb job with the build of this brand new Mustang.

“They have aimed for perfection in every aspect, and when you look closely at the car, you can truly see the attention to detail.

“I’m working harder than ever to ensure the long hours, late nights and commitment this team has made will be rewarded with some great results in 2023.

“I’m sure the Ford fans will love our blue CoolDrive Mustang, and I’m keen to continue with the testing and development program.”

The Gen3 milestone comes following delays in homologation and builds, with teams given the flexibility to test on dates they choose.

“We commend Tim Blanchard and his team for their efforts to get to this point and begin the next phase of their Gen3 journey,” said Supercars CEO Shane Howard.

“Gen3 is the biggest change in the history of our sport, and to see the first of 25 Supercars on track, unveiled in its racing colours this morning, is an exciting moment.

“This is the first shakedown and livery reveal from the Supercars teams, and more will follow over coming days, which is great news for fans as we continue the countdown to their racing debut in March.

“We acknowledge the incredible amount of work by team members, manufacturers, engineers and the technical experts involved in this project, who have worked long hours over the Christmas period and throughout summer to bring their teams to this point.

“Due to their efforts, we are now seeing these amazing Supercars on track in team colours ahead of their racing debut.”
