Ford Mustang to serve as Supercars Safety Car

The new Vodafone Ford Safety Car

Ford will supply Mustangs to operate as Supercars’ Safety Car in 2019.

The Blue Oval’s muscle car will get around in Vodafone’s dayglo red as part of the telco’s ongoing deal with Supercars.

Both partnerships extend also to the Course Car and Medical Car which will operate throughout this year’s Virgin Australia Supercars Championship.

The deal with Ford comes about after the Raptor variant of its Ranger ute debuted as Supercars’ official recovery vehicle at last year’s Sandown 500.

Kay Hart, President and CEO of Ford Australia and New Zealand said, “The Ranger Raptor Recovery Vehicle, and now the Mustang GT Safety and additional Ford Course Cars, will help provide crucial rapid response.

“We’re extremely proud to partner with Vodafone and Supercars with the Mustang Safety and Ford Course Cars.”

Vodafone Chief Commercial Officer Ben McIntosh commented, “We have a close and long-running partnership with the Supercars.

“As a business we love the sport and we couldn’t be happier to be involved in what will be a cracking year of action in 2019.”
