It's good, Ford Australia (for whatever reason) deciding to specifically target the enthusiast (or "bogan" / Mighty Car Mods choo-choo ) market specifically with a Ford Performance brand --- for which Supercars racing is a perfect fit. Good stuff.

What a day! Ludo to do a lot of the work behind the new car, a V8, a joint program between Ford Performance, Tickford and Prodrive.

Contributions to racing needs to be off the back of profitable vehicles and Mustang v Camaro could hit the spot, but can Holden catch up to Ford with Camaro sales once they start?

As expected I'm stoked with this announcement.

Next up, I'm keen to see what other teams might move over to the Blue Oval
Wouldn't it be something to see the former HRT running Mustangs

Excellent news, exactly what the series needed. Just wish Holden had got the Camaro going sooner.

Speaking to friends back home, Supercars already has a strong following. Imagine the penetration a Mustang vs Camaro rivalry could achieve stateside.

Very promising and optimistic times ahead

awesome news for the sport.

tbh I see the next announcement being WAU running a Camaro in 2019.

would love to see Erebus do it too. they seem pretty keen on their WAU engine alliance why not take it further.....

would love to see the Chevy bow tie out on track.

It's absolutely great, I didn't see that coming at all and now it's relief that it's been announced. It's not only great for Ford teams but for the sport in general because there had been a threat of only-Holden Supercars. Over the moon to see comeback of Ford happen.

Great news all round I think. We've heard statements along the lines of "Ford aren't interested" or "Ford has no interest in Supercars" or "Ford's lack of interest shows that Supercars isn't relevant" from naysayers for a while now. This announcement today is nothing but a positive for the sport generally.

Interesting to note that Ford Australia's head honcho went out of his way to say that Ford withdrew from not just Supercars but also many of its other sponsorships so that it could concentrate on transitioning its workforce and the company generally with the closure of manufacturing. He also said that Ford had continued to support the teams running Fords quietly in the background.

This new deal shows plenty of interest in the category and commitment to it - Ford Ranger recovery vehicles and Moosetangs competing on track. I can see the odd headache with maintaining parity but no doubt it'll all get worked out.

With consistent industry rumours that Fiat/Chrysler might be bringing in the Dodge Challenger road cars, how cool would it be if they joined as well? It would be a bit of a throwback to the days of the "big three"!

High time to restore the V8 in front of "Supercars" where it should have been all along.
