Cam Waters led the celebrations as Ford scored its 100th podium finish for the Mustang Supercar at the second round of the 2021 Repco Supercars Championship.
Waters was second in heat one and first in heat two at the Sandown SuperSprint, then second in races three and four of the season with his Monster Energy Tickford Racing Ford Mustang, as David Reynolds secured a third place in the final race with his Penrite Racing Ford Mustang.
“For Mustang to have achieved 100 podiums at the start of just its third season in Supercars racing is an incredible achievement, and a testament to the hard work of all Mustang teams. Our thanks and congratulations to all the teams and drivers for continuing to raise the bar higher and higher,” said Andrew Birkic, president and CEO, Ford Australia and New Zealand.
Changeable Melbourne weather meant the Ford teams had to cope with a huge range of track conditions, from sun-drenched heat on Saturday through to a rain-lashed chill on Sunday evening. The best result for the Mustang posse was on Saturday, with five Fords in the top 10 places, and Waters is the best placed of the Mustang runners in the championship standings, moving up the order to fourth.
