Ford Performance launched in Australia

The pony vehicle will serve as the backbone of the automaker's entry in the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship starting next season.

So apart from the return of official Ford backing to the Australian Supercars Championship under the Ford Performance banner, the Blue Oval performance brand's involvement with the Mustang will remain limited to a number of chassis and engine parts. With the Gen2 rules for Supercars now in place, two-door cars are eligible, and so Ford made a decision to race the Mustang rather than the Australian Mondeo.

Ford has six organizations and 13 teams in its NASCAR lineup, including Wood Brothers Racing, Roush Fenway Racing, Team Penske, Stewart-Haas Racing, Front Row Motorsports and Go Fas Racing.

Speaking at the launch of Ford Performance in Melbourne today Ford Australia president Graeme Whickman announced the new Fiesta ST will be an important part of the new sub-brand, sitting alongside the Ranger Raptor, Mustang and new Focus ST.

And even better than that, it will continue to use a V8 because, in Ford's own words, it was "probably the most competitive and reliable way".

The Coyotes issued a statement to ABC15 to acknowledge the incident and say they are gathering information on the situation. He played 35 games with Arizona, scoring eight goals and tallying 11 assists.

Both are back on the grid this season with the Ford FG X Falcon.

However, the arrival - and subsequent success - of United States motor racing magnate Roger Penske, along with the runaway success of the Mustang sports auto in the sales charts, has seen a change of heart in Broadmeadows. He adds that the "Mustang is a flawless fit for our racing heritage today and tomorrow".

FORD Australia has officially confirmed a local arrival of the next-generation Ford Fiesta ST for about this time next year. "We didn't completely get out of the sport - we have been offering support to our teams over the last couple of years in many ways". Since its inception in 1997, Supercars had prohibited the racing of two-door coupes but that is no longer the case. "Next year is about the Mustang", said Tickford Racing team principal Tim Edwards.

Racing legend and co-owner of DJR Team Penske, Dick Johnson, joked that he "wouldn't be caught" in any other vehicle, after speculation Ford would sign on.
