Chevrolet Racing has hit back – politely – at Ford’s concerns over Gen3 parity.
Ford is still bluing about the new Mustang’s performance versus the Chevrolet Camaro in the final countdown to the Supercars season-opening Newcastle 500 next month.
In the latest PARKED UP PLUS podcast, Chevrolet Racing manager Chris Payne fires back at Ford, diplomatically declaring the bow-tie brand is happy Gen3 will be a level playing field. Listen here:
Payne also talks about a possible interest in a Triple Eight alliance to run the Corvette GT3.R at the Bathurst 12 Hour.
Ford has also developed a GT3 version of the Mustang, with the Mount Panorama around-the-clock classic high on its list.
Tickford Racing co-owner Rod Nash confirms the Ford Supercars team’s interest in GT racing as it looks to expand into other areas of racing.
PARKED UP PLUS reveals exclusively that Tickford has dumped its Ford road car enhancement business to concentrate on racing and automotive engineering as a major sideline to Supercars.
Corvette versus Mustang at the Bathurst 12 Hour in 2025 is a very real prospect. Chevrolet Racing’s plans and Tickford Racing’s new direction are outlined by PARKED UP PLUS.
There’s also the latest on Supercars’ Gen3 switch to a greener fuel with a new synthetic component further reducing fossil-derived hydrocarbons.
It’s all in the new episode of PARKED UP PLUS, presented by leading motorsport news-breaker Mark Fogarty.
