Team boss, Jamie Whincup, shed light on the redesign, telling Speedcafe.com, “So the wheelbase, and the width of the car will be exactly the same on the outside, just the inside, underneath the bodywork, it is going to be a little bit wider than it originally was to give the engine a little bit more room to be able to put in and out.” While the redesign comes late in the game, it’s an indication of the lengths Supercars is going to in order to get Gen3 as close to the ideal product as possible.
The videos and reports from those at the testing rounds report that the power and the sound will be crowd-pleasers!
General Motors or Ford? The race is on…
With the Ford vs Holden rivalry coming to an end – at least in Supercars – would you as a Holden fan naturally jump on board the Camaro? Or do you do the unthinkable and follow the Mustangs? They both look sensational, so which will create the biggest fan army?
All Supercar teams have now committed their allegiances to manufacturers for next year. Erebus Motorsport and Team 18 will be driving the Camaro in 2023. They join the likes of PremiAir Racing, Brad Jones Racing and Matt Stone Racing in the General Motors camp.
Erebus Motorsport CEO Barry Ryan was excited for the next evolution of his team, stating: “There’s no need to change from where we are now as GM or Holden, so we’re sticking with the same parent brand.” Ryan was also excited for the new generation on a philosophical level, saying “the Camaro is a good platform for the sport, it’s a very similar car to the Ford Mustang and it will be exciting to see them both go head-to-head.”
This excitement was further emphasised when Matt Stone laid down the gauntlet. He said that “MSR is not in Supercars to just make up the numbers, as we have shown with our continuous improvement and results. We are here to win, and the quality of our key partnerships is key to achieving that goal.”
