Ford teams are set to implement new lightweight doors and rear quarter panels from next weekend’s Repco Bathurst 1000.

New doors and rear quarter panels have been designed courtesy of Tickford Racing and DYC.

The latest tweaks ensure a saving of 5.84kg for the Mustang, and a vehicle CoG height reduction of 1.31mm.

It also ensures the total Chevrolet Camaro CoG adjustment is now 0.0kg, given the significance of the weight saving and the CoG height of the new parts on the Mustang.

It comes after Supercars announced a small increase to the minimum weight of the Gen3 vehicles to 1340kg, prior to the Penrite Oil Sandown 500.


Prior to Sandown, the minimum weight for all cars without carrying excessive ballast was 1335kg total dry (of fuel) and 725kg minimum front axle, with driver ballast (to 95kg).

For the final four rounds of the 2023 season, the figure was increased by five kilograms to 1340kg, with the front axle weight remaining at 725kg. The 1340kg minimum weight applies for both enduro and non-enduro events.

The 2023 Repco Supercars Championship will resume at the Repco Bathurst 1000 on October 5-8.

Erebus Motorsport Camaro driver Brodie Kostecki leads Red Bull Ampol Chevrolet rival Shane van Gisbergen by 155 points.

Penrite Oil Sandown 500 winner, Red Bull Ampol Camaro driver Broc Feeney, is 204 points from the lead in third.

Tickets are available for the 60th anniversary running of the Repco Bathurst 1000 on Supercars.com and Ticketek.com.
