Shell V-Power Racing reveal Gen3 Mustang

Shell V-Power Racing has revealed its title contender for the 2023 Repco Supercars Championship.

Ahead of a planned test this week at Queensland Raceway, the Shell V-Power Ford Mustang GTs to be driven by Anton De Pasquale and Will Davison in this year’s championship remain largely unchanged compared to previous seasons except new sponsorship from Pivotel, a rural communications specialist.

Davison is ready to kick off a new era in Australian touring car history.

“The car looks fantastic, it’s different – as soon as you see it, it looks tough, it looks fast, it looks slick,” Davison described.

“With our cars built here we’ve been able to really refine the build and now it’s time for us to get in and get comfortable. There’s a lot of new things ahead of us that we need to understand, but we’re all pumped to see it on the track and get the year underway.”

Teammate De Pasquale added: “I’m super excited for this new generation of Supercars, it’s a different look for our team. The livery is a little bit different but still looks as iconic as we know the Shell V-Power colours are. Everyone in the workshop has been working super hard, so I’m looking forward to that first day the cars roll out and hopefully it brings us a lot of success along the way.”

As one of the two homologation teams Supercars enlisted to develop the Gen3 models, Shell V-Power Racing has been integral to getting the Mustang on track as detailed by Team Principal Ben Croke.

“This has been the biggest change for the Supercar platform in over two decades,” said Croke. “The change is exciting. It’s special to be a part of such a big shift in the sport, especially with something that looks so good and resembles the actual road going version of the car.”

For racing legend and co-owner of Shell V-Power Racing, Dick Johnson is eager to welcome a new generation of racing.

“I’ve been fortunate enough to do a couple of laps at Bathurst in the Gen3 Car and I’m pretty excited for the fact that a lot of the drivers are going to find it very different from the previous car,” Johnson explained.

“In this particular category, normally, cream usually rises to the top and one would hope that we’re the thickest cream.”

Testing is scheduled to start this week for the team before the opening round of the Repco Supercars Championship at Newcastle on November 10-12.
