Ford CEO Jim Farley got behind the wheel of a Ford Mustang Supercar ahead of the car’s scheduled appearance at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed.

American Farley took the reins of the former Dick Johnson Racing car at the private M1 Concourse facility in Pontiac, Michigan last week.

Farley was joined on the day by Roger Penske, who co-owned the iconic DJR squad between 2014 and 2020.

Decorated team owner Penske got behind the wheel in the 2008 Porsche RS Spyder LMP2 car.

It was announced last month that the Mustang Supercar, chassis DJR FG19, would make an appearance at the famed Goodwood event.

The chassis remained in the United States following Team Penske’s exit from Supercars at the end of the 2020 season.

While now a Mustang, the chassis was originally a Falcon, which the team shipped Stateside in 2015.

The chassis was placed into storage at Team Penske’s headquarters in Mooresville, North Carolina.

The Mustang will return to the track at the Goodwood event, which will run under the ‘Motorsport’s Great All-Rounders’ theme across July 8-11.
