DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – The NASCAR Whelen Euro Series has unveiled the new Ford Mustang at a development session at Fontenay Le Comte, France, where the new 2016 race package was put to the test.
Bold, aggressive and fascinating, the Ford Mustang features strong visual ties with its production counterpart, which made its European in 2015 and represents the perfect match for the Chevrolet SS the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series presented at the Circuit Zolder Finals in October.
The “Next Level” 2016 package, including improved aerodynamics, brakes, suspensions, Dexwet air filter and safety, designed to increase performances and the car’s already unmatched cost effectiveness, provided highly positive results, with an average gain of 0.7 seconds per kilometer on the previous configuration.
“Everybody is very excited with the new 2016 cars. They really look amazing and I’m proud of the job done by our organization and our friends at NASCAR USA. This new package also deliver great gains in performances and drivability,” said Jerome Galpin, NASCAR Whelen Euro Series President and CEO.
The next public NASCAR Whelen Euro Series test session will take place once again at Fontenay Le Comte on Jan. 15.
