A Ford Mustang Supercar is set to complete a demonstration run in the United States later this month.

Ford Performance has announced plans to showcase a Shell V-Power Racing-liveried Mustang at Virginia International Raceway on August 23-25.

That will be during the IMSA SportsCar Championship's Michelin GT Challenge event, on the same weekend as the Supercars OTR SuperSprint.

Ryan Briscoe, a Ford GT driver, will get behind the wheel of the DJR Team Penske-built chassis.

The car has been in the USA since 2015, having last raced as a Supercar in '14 in the hands of DJR's David Wall.

Now sporting Mustang bodywork, it has been displayed in a range of environments including Ford's world headquarters and a NASCAR race.
