Bathurst Six-Hour has been opened up to the new Ford, and there could be one or more on the grid next April.
The Easter Bunny may bring an Australian production racing debut for Ford’s new-generation Mustang at Mt Panorama next April.
Bathurst Six-Hour event director James O’Brien has announced today that, apart from a bumper entry already for the April 16 enduro, the Ford Mustang GT has been added to the event’s vehicle eligibility list.
The new ’Stang will be able to compete in the invitational class.
O’Brien said “several competitors have shown an interest in entering the race” with Mustangs.
“We know of at least one team advanced in their plans to enter one,” O’Brien said.
“It is likely the car is going to be a popular addition to production car racing in the near future and we expect to see several of them on the grid.”
