Scott McLaughlin and the Shell V-Power Racing Team have taken to Queensland Raceway to shake down a new Ford Mustang ahead of this weekend’s Penrite Oil Sandown 500.
While the team has a third car, which has previously been used to evaluate next year’s engine changes, it has elected to prepare a new chassis for McLaughlin and Alexandre Premat for the final Pirtek Enduro Cup event of the season.
That has seen McLaughlin today head to Queensland Raceway to perform a shake down test on the new car before it heads to Melbourne for this weekend’s event.
Teams are allowed 60 kilometres of running at a shakedown test, which affords them the opportunity to complete basic systems checks and basic set-up work on a new chassis.
