Anderson Motorsport has uncovered its new-look Ford Mustang for Super2 debutant Max Vidau, who will carry Tyrepower backing in 2024.

Vidau, 22, will make his competitive debut in Supercar machinery at this weekend's Dunlop Series opener, the Thrifty Bathurst 500.

A former Porsche ace, Vidau will steer the ex-DJR Team Penske #17 Mustang in 2024.

Tyrepower has backed Vidau through the past two seasons in Porsche Carrera Cup Australia, with Exedy, Hi-Tech Oils and MV Automatics also supporting Vidau's efforts.

The young driver recently tested at Winton Motor Raceway, and is keen for the challenge of tackling a Supercar at Mount Panorama.

It comes after a big maiden Super2 season for Anderson Motorsport, which was led to second in the points by rising star Zak Best.


"At the end of the day it was either the Mountain or a street circuit for my debut, and I’m confident starting at Bathurst with the laps I’ve turned around there in the past,” said Vidau, who has replaced Best in the Anderson Ford.

"The Anderson Motorsport car was also extremely fast at Bathurst last year, Zak put it on pole with a massive number, so we should have a good package out of the gate. I’m just looking to get the season rolling and bank some solid points.

"There are some big adjustments to what I’ve done in the past. Over the top of the Mountain the driving style is very different to the Porsche, you need a lot of braking to turn the Supercars. There’ll be some braking in new places, which I need to get used to and really build into getting the speed up across the top.

"The heel-and-toe is like riding a bike, you don’t really forget how to do it, but I’ll need to build the muscle memory back up and get used to using some of those muscles I haven’t used in a while.

"It’s an incredible field this season, there’s 20 drivers who should be able to go out and compete at the front, so I’m expecting it to be pretty aggressive up front. If I can compete inside the top five, I’ll be stoked."

Dunlop Series action will commence at Mount Panorama on Friday February 23, with the weekend headlined by two 40-minute races. Tickets are on sale now.
