Ford Performance Racing now has its very own royal couple after Will Davison’s new #6 Trading Post FPR Falcon was christened ‘Kate’ following an internal Trading Post staff competition to name the new chassis.

FPR’s ‘Will and Kate’ met for the first time earlier today after Davison flew back into the country following a brief mid-season break in the United Kingdom.

‘Kate’ – formally known as FPR-1010 – is the 13th chassis built by FPR since its inception.

“I have never really named my race cars, though with a brand new car I guess I start a new tradition and Kate is a good choice,” Davison said.

“My new car is just that – all-new from the ground up. It has all our latest developments and I am really looking forward to giving it its first laps at Winton tomorrow.

“Queensland Raceway will allow me to adapt to it ahead of the enduros so we should be well-placed for Phillip Island, Bathurst and the run home to the Telstra Sydney 500.”

A second new FPR chassis will make its debut at Phillip Island in the hands of Mark Winterbottom and Steve Richards. comment policy reserves the right to deny any post that is abusive or offtopic. Users are encouraged to flag/report comments which should be removed.
