Influential Supercars team owner Brad Jones has proclaimed the problem-plagued Gen3 racers as the category’s “best cars ever”.
Jones owns the four-car Brad Jones Racing squad and is a member of the Supercars Commission, which governs the sporting rules.
Amid further testing delays, the stalwart team boss explains clearly and concisely why Gen3 will be ready in time for the season-opening Newcastle 500 in just under six weeks.
As Supercars hides from the media, Jones tackles the hard issues of Gen3’s protracted and costly gestation.
He declares that the new Chevrolet Camaro and Ford Mustang racers will be pinnacle V8s from a technical perspective, hopefully translating into closer racing.
The ex-racer is convinced that “it’ll be all right on the night”, meaning the 25-car field will be ready to go on the mean streets of Newcastle.
