Supercars begins technical recruitment drive
Tuesday 31st October, 2023 - 5:15pm
Supercars has formally kicked off the recruitment drive for its new-look technical department ahead of the latest wave of parity testing.
That will sit along other never-used-before measures such as transient dyno testing, while torque sensors are also set to be fitted to both the Ford Mustangs and Chevrolet Camaros.
As part of the parity-driven shake-up, Supercars will bolster its technical department with two brand new roles – a Category Technical Director and Performance Engineer.
