CHAZ MOSTERT is primed for the Superloop Adelaide 500, where he and teammates Lee Holdsworth, Cam Waters and Will Davison will debut four of the six new Ford Mustangs on the track.
It’s the first time that Ford has run a new model car in the series since the adoption of the ‘V8 Supercar’ system in 1993.
Tickford Racing has built four Mustangs to comply with the category’s control chassis, which were tested at Phillip Island last week.

Set to debut at the Adelaide Street Circuit from February 28-March 3, Mostert believes the field will be looking to win the first edition of the event with Superloop as its naming rights sponsor.
Combined with the influx of fans to the nation’s largest domestic motorsport event, Mostert is excited for the start of the 2019 campaign.
“I think it’s just the best opening round of the year,” Mostert told SuperloopADL500.com.au.
“To see the fans come out to this event, the championship goes back to zero points, I think it’s just great to have the fan interaction.”
Tickford was perhaps the most surprising team at the all-in test day, though Mostert said the team would not be taking its strong finishing position for granted, despite all four Broadmeadows-stabled cars running inside the top 10.
Mostert says the team has achieved significant results with the four-car build, but needs to make improvements in time for the first races of the year in Adelaide.
“For me, it’s pretty cool for the team to be able to put the head down and unleash a product like that,” Mostert said.
“It’s been flat out for the boys. We had our test last week and to get four brand new mustangs to the track has been an absolutely big task for the team.
“We’re pretty much just trying to refine the car, try and get a bit better set up direction before we hit the streets in Adelaide.”
The Superloop Adelaide 500 runs from 28 February-3 March and is the opening round of the 2019 Virgin Australia Supercars Series.
