Ford teams aren’t expecting any performance improvement at this weekend’s Darwin Triple Crown.
As well as engine response, Mustang squads are concerned about aero parity and weight distribution.
The latest PARKED UP PLUS podcast reveals why Ford teams aren’t convinced the Mustang is fully equal to the dominant Chevrolet Camaro. Listen here:
Outspoken Gen3 critic David Reynolds has his say on the on-going iniquity, charging that the Camaro’s domination is more than engine-related.
His Penrite Racing team boss David Cauchi also suggests a wider parity dispute is going on in the background.
The ambitious Grove Racing Ford squad unveiled its Darwin Indigenous round livery with an auction to raise more than $40,000 again for the Melbourne Indigenous Transition School.
Reynolds and Cauchi also talk about their plan to rebound at Hidden Valley as a Ford pacesetter after a poor performance at Symmons Plains last month.
PARKED UP PLUS also hears from V8 legend Garth Tander on what to expect racingwise in Darwin – and why Grove Racing is a top team of the future.
2007 Supercars champion Tander joined Penrite Racing after two Bathurst 1000 wins alongside Shane van Gisbergen at Triple Eight, adding to his three victories with GRM and HRT.
The latest PARKED UP PLUS podcast also has the latest on next year’s Supercars calendar, tipped to go from 12 to 15 events.
Among the tracks bidding for a slot is Winton Motor Raceway, with the rural track’s chief explaining why it wants – and deserves – to be back on the schedule.
