Supercars announces Centre of Gravity parity test

NINE cars will be put through Centre of Gravity testing later this month in the latest parity check by Supercars.

The category has announced a two-day test at Dunlop’s factory in Melbourne on March 25-26, directly after Round 2 at Albert Park.

A car from each of Dick Johnson Racing, Triple Eight Race Engineering, PremiAir Racing, Tickford Racing and Brad Jones Racing will go under the microscope on the Monday. The following day will involve a car from Grove Racing, Walkinshaw Andretti United, Erebus Motorsport and Team 18.

It will take place 12 months on from Supercars’ last CoG test, also straight after Albert Park, after which minor adjustments were applied.

The 2024 CoG test follows various changes to the Gen3 Mustang and Camaro in the past year.

“CoG is another one of our parity pillars, and we will keep dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s,” Supercars general manager of motorsport Tim Edwards told the championship’s official website.

“We’re always monitoring everything. We know a lot’s changed on the cars over the last 12 months, particularly with the Mustang, where they’ve had to reduce the panel weights a little bit to fall in line with the Camaro.

“We’ve done theoretical calculations of it, but we want to do physical tests and put it to bed, and this is a great opportunity to do so with CoG.”

Supercars underwent off-season wind tunnel testing in the United States to equalise aero between its two models, and continues to chip away on the engine front.
