BRAD Jones Racing is in line to receive the first completed Gen3 chassis at the upcoming Sandown SuperSprint.

Announced this morning via the official Supercars website, the chassis is the first of 16 to be produced by PACE Innovations.

Fans will get the latest look at the Chevrolet Camaro and all-new Ford Mustang prototypes at Sandown across August 19-21, with demonstration laps scheduled for all three days.

Just as significant off-track, General Motors-aligned BJR will take receipt of a finished chassis.

“The first car is completed and is a Brad Jones car,” PACE founder Paul Ceprnich told

“It’s completed here and awaiting delivery; it’s going to probably go in the Supercars truck to Sandown. I believe they are helping us with the delivery.

“Basically, we have 16 chassis to build, and it will be a continuous process now, sort of tapering down to a car every six or seven days, with a final car being delivered sometime in the middle of November.

“All the teams that we are supplying will get their first car first, and then the bigger teams will get their second car.

“Then it will be a continuous program with the biggest teams, which are BJR and Tickford getting their fourth car last.

“The production schedule has been around for the past year, nothing has really changed, we are just working with a shorter timeframe.”

Triple Eight Race Engineering, Walkinshaw Andretti United and Erebus Motorsport will also build chassis, the latter two reported to have received their kits from PACE in recent days.

Roughly seven months remain until Gen3 debuts.

Sandown marks the fifth-last event for the current Mustang and Holden ZB Commodore at main game level, with Pukekohe, Bathurst, Gold Coast and Adelaide to follow.
