2013 Ford Facon Race Car for V8 Supercars Unveiled
The Falcon V8, waring large EcoBoost logos down the side, will be driven by Mark Winterbottom and Will Davison, the former now being in charge of the shakedown procedure for the car.
Ford Performance Racing Team Principal Tim Edwards said the team’s first outing with the V8 had been better than anticipated.
“It has been an unbelievably successful day and everything ran as well as we could’ve planned, if not better,” Edwards said. “The rest of the shakedown this morning went fine and Will got his first chance to drive the car before we did 80 laps for the category so they could evaluate some transaxle cooling options. This information will be passed onto the other teams and I must say all three options ran successfully and potentially could all be used at the first race next year.”
