Monster Mustang goes to new home, already!

THE curtain has only just fallen on the 2022 Repco Supercars Championship and the Monster Energy Mustang of Cam Waters has already been collected by its new owners ahead of next year’s Dunlop Super2 Series.

Only a matter of hours after it crossed the line yesterday to complete the VALO Adelaide 500 and its time in the Repco Supercars Championship, the #6 Ford was collected by Brema Group Racing to head to its new home in the ACT.

Young gun Zane Morse will drive the car in the 2023 Dunlop Super2 Series and make the step up from his ex-Lucas Dumbrell Motorsport Commodore VF, a chassis that was built by Triple Eight a decade ago.

The Monster Mustang was offered for sale via online auction earlier this year and a deal done in the aftermath of the auction with Morse’s father Andre and team sponsor Mark Siracusa.

Waters was on-hand in the pit lane at Adelaide after yesterday’s final 250-kilometre race to ‘hand over’ his car to its new owners, complete with Motorsport Australia Log Book.

Morse will get his first taste of the car in mid-December at Winton in an official on-track handover day.

His final run in his existing Commodore came to an early end on Sunday, transaxle problems forcing him to pit lane to retire.

Next year he and his new car will be up against Tickford Racing in the Dunlop Super2 Series, the Melbourne-based team having recently confirmed newly crowned Super3 Series Champion Brad Vaughan and ex-BJR driver Elly Morrow will drive two of its existing Mustangs in the series.

Morse’s new car – chassis TR1824 – took pole position in Waters’ hands at this year’s Repco Bathurst 1000 and has been driven by the Monster star for the 2021 and 2022 championship seasons.

It has won six championship races: three in 2021 (The Bend and twice in Townsville) and three in 2022 (twice at Winton and at Hidden Valley) and taken 23 podium finishes, including second place at Bathurst last year and third place this year with Waters and James Moffat at the wheel.

The car also took Waters to this year’s ARMOR ALL Pole Position Award this year with 10 pole positions across the course of the season.

A two-time winner of the ARMOR ALL Pole Award in the Dunlop Series, the ‘main game’ award is Waters’ first in the Repco Supercars Championship and broke a five-year stranglehold on the award by Dick Johnson Racing/DJR Team Penske.
