Supercars has today confirmed the introduction of the Gen3 program will be delayed to the opening event of 2023.
Factors outside the control of Supercars, including the ongoing challenges with international supply chains and domestic disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic are among the major contributing factors.
Lockdowns in various states which have forced Supercars to condense its racing program over the final three months of 2021, have also limited the Gen3 testing program as originally planned.
Supercars has arrived at this decision following consultation with key stakeholders including Repco, Ford, General Motors and Supercars’ broadcast partners.
The manufacturers’ respective homologation teams (Triple Eight Race Engineering and Dick Johnson Racing) continue to forge ahead with the development of the prototypes and Gen3 cars are on track to be unveiled on Friday 3rd of December, during this year’s Repco Bathurst 1000.
Supercars, General Motors and Ford remain committed to rolling out Gen3 and the introduction of the Camaro and the Mustang.
Throughout the course of 2022, fans will see the first-ever Gen3 race car come to life ahead of the program’s racing debut.
Cars will conduct significant on-track exhibitions and testing at many of Supercars’ events next year.
Mark Larkham will continue to bring behind-the-scenes updates of Gen3 prototypes and testing through Repco Supercars Championship broadcast and digital channels.
