The plan is to reduce costs by 30 to 40 per cent, the control parts set to be available to either buy directly from Supercars or fabricated, depending on what it is.

"It’s very pleasing to bring such an iconic car, the Chevrolet Camaro, back to Australia’s race tracks," said Triple Eight boss Roland Dane. “We did look at other vehicles when we first thought about this, well before we even engaged with the teams or the series, but the Mustang is the right fit and its credentials in terms of the V8 are very, very strong.”. “We have a very competitive drivetrain with the V8 and both of our respective teams have our own respective programs, and they’re very competitive, so that’s what our focus is. "We look forward to continuing to work with Sean Seamer and the team at Supercars on our common goal of Ford competing in a highly competitive, entertaining and accessible series. Gen3 will "place a greater emphasis on retaining key dimensions between the race cars and the road vehicles they represent", according to the Supercars website.

The once classic Holden versus Ford battle is entering its next chapter, as Chevrolet steps into void with the Camaro joining the Supercars Championship grid for the 2022 season.
“The Gen3 project will support the longevity of Supercars by increasing relevance to our fans and partners, reducing operating costs, and making the racing even fiercer. “We loved every minute of our 51-year involvement through Holden. The licensing of the Camaro, meanwhile, means that Holden fans will have a GM product to support once the Holden brand disappears. Talks to secure IP agreements with other manufacturers are underway.
According to Supercars, the new-for-2022 regulations will be an "evolution" of the existing platform, underpinned by more control components to help drive down costs.

The road-going Mustang, by contrast, is available with a 5.0-litre V8 or 2.3-litre four-cylinder turbo petrol. “What happens in the future obviously remains open. Engine will remain as a naturally-aspirated V8, mounted up front and and powering the rear wheels. The Chevrolet Camaro will face off against a new-look Ford Mustang, which will be adapted to suit a new 'Gen3' control chassis.

The six Mustangs that are expected to take to the grid at the Adelaide 500 for the season opener on March 3 rd will comprise a mix of box-fresh ‘Stangs and rebodied Falcons. Edwards added, “And really from a racer’s perspective, the team’s preference was to just do one change so at least we can go into 2019 with the new aerodynamics package and we’re not sort of confusing what might have changed from a powertrain point of view. “The vehicle will be running around with a V8,” Ford Australia CEO Graeme Whickman confirmed. "These are incredible looking race cars that give a nod to the Supercar of the past, with as much attention given to the design and appearance of the cars as the new technologies. The Camaro looks fantastic as a road car and there’s no doubt that it will make a spectacular, aggressive race car. “That’s what’s being worked on at the moment along with all the other technical feasibility pieces.
