The real challenge is the optics... the 2 door sports car, the hero car of the range, up against what has to be said, on road at least, is a workaday family hatchback...

When the best team in the land keeps beating the sports car in their family truckster, will Ford rue the decision?

Or when Holden will be beaten by Mustang, will they regret their longtime commitment?
But seriously:
1) rules do allow such things and if Ford really made that decision they have to be fully aware of the possibility of losing with Opel Insignia
2) I won't believe it until I see an official confirmation, sounds too beautiful to me to be true

peckstar has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
This is great news, but we heard it last year, so will wait for an official announcement. tomorrow.

wonder if Holden's decision to drop V6TT made a difference here

I checked this bit: AutoAction.com.au

This bit is problematic for accuracy, but we will see! Good news if true!

"For example, the Mustang – like the Chevrolet Camaro and Nissan GT-R – will need a modified and raised roof profile to meet the minimum height requirement."

This will look dreadful. Let's hope they lower the rollcage instead.

This can only be good news for all the Ford teams at least. Progress into a new model and updated aero package.

Definitely looking forward to the release of this car if its all true.

Probably the reason Speedcafe hasn't released a story on it yet.

Good news IF this is true, really good news. Let's wait and see what happens re announcement tomorrow.

IF this story is true, to me it makes a really big difference to the dynamic of Supercars overall. Some have spoken of the series being virtually "dead" as Ford aren't interested and Holden is struggling in the retail market, doubts over Nissan's commitment. IF Ford support the Moostang competing, that's a big change to that dynamic and one that would guarantee Holden's focus on the series.

Also, IF the Mustang is going to run a V8, it could well lead to the category sticking with that type of power plant.

This type of thing can sometimes be a watershed moment and IF the story is true and it all gets announced tomorrow, I can't see it as anything other than a really good indicator for VASA.

agreed.

Holden have glitched for 2 months, and obviously need to recover, their best seller is the colarsdo now, so will have to see what happens
