Gen3 boss slams the doubters

Adrian Burgess dismisses runaway cost rumours on PARKED UP PLUS podcast.

11 October 2022

Supercars head of motorsport Adrian Burgess has hit out at critics of Gen3, flatly rejecting claims the new cars will be more expensive.
 
Burgess has steered development of the next-gen Chevrolet Camaro and Ford Mustang through COVID delays, supply chain hold-ups, shipping setbacks and increased costs.
 
In the latest PARKED UP PLUS podcast, he declares he is “pissed off” with Gen3 doubters, outlining why the new cars will be cheaper to build, run and repair and also create closer racing.
 
Listen here:

 
In a slightly tense exchange with presenter Mark Fogarty, Burgess dismisses suggestions that Gen3 Camaros and Mustangs will cost as much as $850,000 each to build, contradicting prevailing paddock opinion.
 
The former Supercars championship-winning team manager also explains why he is confident mechanical and aerodynamic parity will be closer than ever when the Gen3 rules takeover at next year’s season-opening Newcastle 500 in early March.


 
Speaking of next season, Supercars supremo Shane Howard tells PARKED UP PLUS that the 2023 calendar is “very close” to being announced.
 
Also, visiting McLaren F1 boss Zak Brown joined fellow WAU co-owner Ryan Walkinshaw at the Bathurst 1000, with both excited by the long-time Holden team’s defection to Ford next year after seeing the new-look Mustang Gen3 prototype at Mount Panorama.
 
It’s all in the latest edition of PARKED UP PLUS, the place of pace for major motorsport news.
