Mustang GT4 makes Australian debut at Phillip Island

The Australian racing debut of the all-new Mustang GT4 is set to occur at the Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit this weekend, April 12 to14.

The event, marking the third round of the 2024 Shannons SpeedSeries, will also see Ford Australia celebrate the 60th anniversary of Mustang. The event, named the Ford Mustang 60 Years Race Phillip Island, will feature car club displays, owner parade laps, and special ticket offers exclusively for Mustang owners.

Ford dealers Andrew and George Miedecke, own the new Mustang racer. The car will be driven in the Monochrome GT4 Australia series by 38-year-old George, a seasoned racer who recently won the Bathurst 6-Hour. Joining him is 17-year-old Rylan Grey, who also competes in a Mustang for Tickford Racing in the Super2 Championship.

“The arrival of our Mustang GT4 marks a new era of Ford Performance in Australia, and we are thrilled that Miedecke Motorsport will showcase its capabilities on the track,” said Andrew Miedecke. “This car embodies the spirit of performance and passion that defines the Mustang legacy. As Ford dealers, we’re also excited about the 60th anniversary celebrations and are looking forward to the seventh-generation Mustang arriving on Australian roads later this year.”

Global director of Ford Performance Motorsports, Mark Rushbrook, highlighted the significance of the Mustang and the excitement surrounding its GT4 racing version’s Australian debut.

“The Mustang holds a special place in the hearts of racing enthusiasts worldwide, and seeing the GT4 version on Australian tracks is truly a momentous occasion,” he said. “We are proud to be part of the global expansion of Mustang in motorsport.”
