THE prototype Gen3 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Supercar will have a fresh look for its next public appearance.

The Camaro and the Ford Mustang prototype are scheduled to turn demonstration laps at next weekend’s NED Whisky Tasmania SuperSprint with Garth Tander and Marcos Ambrose at the wheel respectively.

After debuting with a silver livery, the Camaro will appear at Symmons Plains with a stunning new black livery with prominent Chevrolet Racing branding.

“The new black livery design amps up the stealth factor another notch for the Camaro,” Chris Payne, Chevrolet Racing general manager, said.

“Chevrolet Racing is the new heart for the fans who have followed and celebrated more than 50 years of Holden success in touring car racing.”

Chevrolet Racing was launched at last year’s Repco Bathurst 1000 as General Motors’ new overarching brand for its motorsport efforts in Australia following the retirement of Holden at the end of 2020.

Symmons Plains will also mark the first public on-track appearance of the Gen3 prototypes since a redesign intended to fix ergonomic issues that have troubled drivers during early testing.

A switch to a mechanical gear-lever is also expected to be implement prior to Symmons Plains, following a decision to abandon electronic paddle-shift.

The cars were absent from a slated Winton test in late February and the recent Sydney Motorsport Park season-opener while the changes took place.

Testing of the Gen3 prototypes will continue throughout the year ahead of the Repco Supercars Championship adopting the new rule package in 2023.
