Ford and Holden fans are more likely to own their preferred make than any other, especially the former.

That is one of the findings of the 2020 Motorsport Survey, presented by Kincrome, which asked readers for their views on a range of topics.

Among the 3273 Ford fans, 56.3% also owned at least one Ford, with 6.8% owning at least one FPV (not mutually exclusive).

Their 2880 Holden counterparts recorded a figure of 47.8% on the corresponding metric, and 8.0% owned a HSV.

For both groups, Toyota was the next most popular manufacturer, with 18.1% of Ford fans owning at least one, and 19.5% of Holden fans.

Those figures were calculated from respondents who selected Supercars among their top five favourite motorsport categories, given the highly partisan nature of the championship, at least historically.

Also examined were the preferences of those who rated Supercars in their top five and also stated they primarily supported a manufacturer, rather than team or driver.

Of those 1387 Ford fans, 66.0% owned at least one Ford and 9.0% at least one FPV.

Of those 850 Holden fans, 58.2% owned at least Holden and 10.2% at least one HSV.

Toyota was still the second-favourite manufacturer with 17.7% of Ford fans and 19.1% of Holden fans owning at least one.

Interestingly, 7.4% of Ford fans owned Holdens and 8.9% of Holden fans owned Fords, with those figures dropping to 4.8% and 7.6% respectively when the respondent primarily supported a manufacturer. comment policy reserves the right to deny any post that is abusive or offtopic.
