Supercars have this evening announced a parity review has resulted in an aerodynamic tweak for Gen3 Ford Mustangs, in accordance with championship regulations.
It’s believed the changes will come into affect as early as this weekend for the Townsville 500 on the Reid Park Street Circuit.
The statement revealed an in-depth review using a multi-lap overlay had determined a minor difference in the rear downforce of the Mustang and its performance in the braking zone.
A computational fluid dynamics analysis undertaken by D2H revealed adjustments were required to increase the Mustang’s rear downforce.
This can be done by modifying the position, span, and angle of the rear wing, and increasing the size of the boot spoiler.
Supercars CEO Shane Howard is embracing the changes, saying: “Firstly, we would like to thank the Homologation Teams and D2H for their extensive work on this review.
“It required a considerable amount of man hours, expert analysis, and communication to work together to present these adjustments for approval.
“With these changes in place, Supercars is looking forward to racing at this weekend’s NTI Townsville 500.”
The Townsville 500 begins with practice sessions this Friday and will be shown live on Sky Sport.
