Witness the Thrilling Australian Debut of the Mustang GT4

Ford Australia proudly embraces the opportunity to be a part of the momentous 60th anniversary celebration of the Mustang at Phillip Island

The eagerly awaited debut of the all-new #Mustang #GT4 in Australian racing is scheduled to take place at the iconic Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit this weekend, April 12-14. This event, which is the third round of the 2024 Shannons SpeedSeries, will be a special celebration of the 60th anniversary of the Mustang by Ford Australia. Named the #Ford Mustang 60 Years Race Phillip Island, the event will include car club displays, owner parade laps, and exclusive ticket offers for Mustang owners, creating an exciting atmosphere for racing enthusiasts and fans of the Mustang.

Andrew and George Miedecke, well-known figures in the racing and automotive industry, are the proud owners of the new Mustang racer. As owners of a highly successful Ford dealership, their passion for high-performance vehicles and the Blue Oval brand is unparalleled. The addition of the Mustang GT4 to their collection highlights their dedication to Australian motorsport. The car will be driven by 38-year-old George, a seasoned racer who recently achieved victory at the Bathurst 6-Hour. Joining him is 17-year-old Rylan Grey, who is also competing in a Mustang Supercar for Tickford Racing in the Super2 Championship this year.

“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, thrilled to be the first to own a Mustang GT4 in Australia. “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.”

“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,” said Mark Rushbrook, global director of Ford Performance Motorsports. “We are proud to be part of the global expansion of Mustang in motorsport.”

The Mustang GT4 will be raced and owned by Miedecke Motorsport, with drivers George Miedecke and Rylan Grey at the helm.
