Ford Mustang planned for Monster Energy Series in 2019

Ford Fiesta review

The Ranger Raptor super-ute will become the sole Ford Performance model available in Australia when it goes on sale in September, priced from under $75,000.

New Zealand enthusiasts will be able to buy the new-generation Ford Fiesta ST in 2019.

Just three years after pulling the pin on its local motorsport program, Ford Australia is back in the Supercars game - and it's bringing back an old friend. Get your free 2-week Foxtel Now trial & start watching in minutes.

Ford has also announced that the Mustang is coming to the NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Series - professional stock auto racing's top league - for the first time, beginning at Daytona in February. Since 2011, the Mustang has won all but one of the seasons it raced under the colors of Team Penske in that competition.

Ford cut its ties with the sport at the end of the 2015 season as part of a restructuring of its marketing priorities as the company prepared to end its auto manufacturing operations in Australia.

Lockheed Martin (LMT) Stake Held by Public Employees Retirement Association Of Colorado
Buckingham Capital Management Inc. acquired a new position in Lockheed Martin in the 3rd quarter valued at approximately $208,000. Nine equities research analysts have rated the stock with a hold rating and ten have given a buy rating to the company.

Since the Mustang Supercar is still under development we don't have any images for you, but we can expect a dramatic aero kit and gutted-out interior for the racing version. DJR Team Penske now runs two Fords, while Tickford Racing fields four entries. Switching to Mustangs not only entails the build of two $350,000-plus cars, but stocks of engines, body panels and other ancillaries would also need to be sourced. Demand remains particularly strong in China, where Mustang was the best-selling sports coupe a year ago based on 7 125 registrations.

The Ford Performance global organisation serves as an innovation laboratory and test-bed to create unique performance vehicles, parts, accessories and experiences for customers. The Mustang will be the first two-door auto to compete in Mustang since the Group A days.

The move comes as part of the company's announcement that it will roll out the Ford Performance brand in Australia, the company once again embracing its heritage as a performance auto brand.

Several of Ford's Supercars drivers, including Winterbottom and Scott McLaughlin, couldn't hide their excitement at the news.

"There is a strong appetite and passion for the Fiesta ST in our line-up, and we can see the affinity and esteem that Australians have with driving enjoyment of the existing model", said Ford Australia CEO, Graeme Whickman.
