Ford explains subtle Supercars change

EAGLE-EYED fans might have noticed a common theme between the various Mustang livery launches heading into the 2024 Repco Supercars Championship.

That is, the general absence of the Blue Oval badge, in favour of ‘Ford Performance’ branding.

It’s no coincidence.

“The change from the Blue Oval to Ford Performance branding is a global direction, which will be seen in all Mustang racing series around the world,” a Ford spokesperson told V8 Sleuth.

“This brings Mustang race vehicles in line with their roadgoing counterparts, which have not featured a blue oval badge on their exterior body for several years.

“You will see this consistent branding across NASCAR, GT3, GT4, Supercars and other series in 2024 and beyond.”

Three of the five Ford Supercars teams have launched their 2024 liveries to date, namely Walkinshaw Andretti United, the Blanchard Racing Team and Grove Racing.

Dick Johnson Racing and Tickford Racing’s liveries for the season ahead are still to be released.
