Fox Sports will broadcast a 60-minute feature, named An Even Faster Horse: Ford Mustang Supercar, produced by Neil Crompton’s Airtime Media on the pay television network on Tuesday night at 2030 AEDT.

It also takes a look at the Mustang’s history in Australian motorsport prior to its re-emergence in this year’s Virgin Australia Supercars Championship.   

Several key figures feature in the film, including Edsel Ford ll (Ford MotorCompany), Kay Hart (Ford Australia President & CEO), Mark Rushbrook (Global Director – Ford Performance), Team Penske boss Roger Penske, Dick Johnson and Ryan Story from DJR Team Penske, Tickford Racing boss Tim Edwards, and drivers Scott McLaughlin and Chaz Mostert.
