To October’s Winton SuperSprint, the Mustang GT has recorded 42 race wins since its victorious debut on the streets of Adelaide in 2019.
With 12 races remaining in 2021, Ford’s drivers have ample opportunity to help the Mustang to the half century.
Eight more wins, and the Mustang GT will join the Falcon FG (55 wins) and Falcon BA (51) in the ’50 club’.
The Falcon FG ran between 2009 and 2014, with the Falcon BA competing between 2003 and 2006.
Scott McLaughlin won a record 48 races for Ford
Three more wins, and the Mustang GT will equal the Falcon FG X’s tally of 45 wins.
The Falcon FG X was ran between 2015 and 2018, and was the last Falcon Supercar.
The Blue Oval has form at the remaining venues on the calendar: Fords have claimed eight of the last 12 race wins at Winton, the last six at Phillip Island, and four of the last six at Sydney Motorsport Park.
The Falcon FG is Ford's most successful model
Bathurst and the Gold Coast remain Achilles heels; including the season-opening Repo Mt Panorama 500, Commodores have won seven of the last eight races in Bathurst.
Holden has also claimed eight of the last 11 wins at Surfers Paradise; however, the 2021 season finale will be a single-driver event, with the Gold Coast an enduro between 2010 and 2019.
Ford drivers will aim to steer the Mustang GT closer to the half century when the 2021 season resumes at Winton on October 2-3.
