Ford Mustang Gets its GT4 Homologation

Ford Mustang GT4 at SEMA 2016-02

The Ford Mustang has been officially homologated as a global GT4 car by the SRO. 

Built by Mulitmatic in Toronto, the car has already competed in both the IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge and Pirelli World Challenge at times this year under series-specific homologations.

According to SportsCar365the SRO approved the Mustang’s final homologation on July 31, months later than Ford had initially hoped after being required to move the oil tank and make other, minor modifications.

The Mustang is now eligible to compete in all GT4 governed championships worldwide; notably, the GT4 European Series, British GT Championship, and Blancpain GT Series Asia, plus eligibility for endurance races like the Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour.

By year’s end, Ford is expecting an influx of customer teams in both North America and Europe, having recently having hosted an open test at Anglesey Circuit in Wales for potential takers.

It’s believed Ford Europe’s long time partner, M-Sport, will provide technical support to Mustang GT4 customers in the Old World.
