BA Racecar set to debut at Bathurst

BA racecar to debut at Bathurst



Ford today announced that its exciting new BA-model Ford Falcon V8 Supercar will be on show at this year’s Bob Jane T-Marts 1000 at Bathurst on Sunday 13 October 2002.
The BA V8 Supercar will be in the Ford Merchandise Hall in Harris Park.

Built by Ford with the same engineering expertise used to develop the BA Falcon road car range, the first 2003 model V8 Supercar is a developmental platform from which final technical specifications will be made ahead of its first season of competition.

The knowledge gained from this development program will be shared by all Ford teams ahead of the 2003 season.

The new BA-model Falcon is also the first-ever factory-built Ford V8 Supercar.

The car will feature a striking paint scheme designed by Ford Design Studio’s Nick Hogios, who’s also designed the now-famous ‘Green-Eyed Monster’ 00 Motorsport Falcon Supercar of Craig Lowndes.

Following its Bathurst appearance, the BA V8 Supercar will be a key member of the Ford stand at the Sydney Motor Show between Friday 18 – Sunday 27 October inclusive.

The BA-model Falcon will be eligible for competition from the start of 2003, with its first race scheduled for the Australian Grand Prix meeting at Albert Park (Melbourne) March 7-9.

That looks awesome, lets hope they can win some races.

One fluke win at the QLD500 is not enough, bring on Bathurst, bring on season 2003

looks GTish, maybe someone with a better eye could compare it with the drawings from the FPV site.
EDIT: since the first sighting i didnt see that the two pics livery were different, the second one only has the ford logo on the side no wings

Because the BA V8 Supercar will based on the XR8, will it have the bonnet bulge?

If you look closely at the bonnet, i think the bulge IS there.
