Clearly we are disappointed in Fords decision to cease financial support for Supercars but Super Black’s view has always been about a New Zealand Supercar team for New Zealanders. Ford NZ have preferred to support hockey over cars with local support only coming from one of their dealers, the great guys at North Harbour Ford. Our relationship with Prodrive FPR is valuable to us and has allowed us to put a Kiwi team on the V8Supercars grid.
We’re lucky to have Prodrive’s support as we’ll have a very competitive Ford for the 2015 season. Ford’s decision only opens up more opportunity for other manufacturers to get in and have crack! Bring it on Holden, Toyota, Volvo, it’s all about a New Zealand team going racing.
