See below a statement from Supercars CEO Shane Howard:

Supercars can confirm additional straight line evaluations will be conducted next week to validate the current specifications of the new Gen 3 Chevrolet Camaro and Ford Mustang ahead of their debut in Newcastle on March 10.

These final tests have been jointly developed between the respective Manufacturers, their Homologation Teams and Supercars, as an agreed pathway to ensure best practice finalisation of the specification of both vehicles. The results of these evaluations will help us to provide the best racing product for all our stakeholders and importantly our passionate fans.

We have been extremely pleased with the way the Teams have utilised the flexible testing regime that has been rolled out over recent weeks, with over 10,000km of shakedown and test laps completed in the Camaros and Mustangs.


As we approach the biggest change our sport has ever undertaken, it is imperative that we continue to validate the new Supercars relative performance as Parity is a cornerstone of the continued success of our Sport.

The tests will be strictly controlled to ensure all parties are treated fairly and equitably, in a transparent and collaborative manner, consistent with the accredited Homologation process to ensure that we provide the best racing product possible.

We take our responsibility to our fans, teams, and all stakeholders very seriously and therefore believe that this validation testing will only strengthen our process moving forward.
