1:18 / 1:43 Scale Penrite Racing #19 Ford Mustang GT 2023 Penrite Oil Sandown 500 Retro Livery Drivers: Matthew Payne / Kevin Estre

A new era began in 2023 when Gen3 Supercars were introduced to race in the Supercars Championship.

A significant evolution from the previous Gen2 platform, the Gen3 rules implemented a raft of changes for the Ford Mustang GT Supercar in 2023, with a large focus on achieving a much closer visual connection to its road going counterpart, more controlled parts and less downforce to encourage greater racing.

Matthew Payne joined Grove Racing for his first full time season in Supercars, racing the #19 Penrite backed Mustang in the 2023 championship. True to Penrite’s form as a major partner who enjoys updating their race liveries, the team raced a number of different colour schemes across the season and perhaps their best example of this was their retro paint job raced at the Penrite Oil Sandown 500.

Joined by Frenchman Kevin Estre on co-driving duties for the endurance races, the retro #19 Mustang was inspired by Allan Moffat’s 1979 Ford XC Federation Falcon. The livery was designed to honour Moffat’s contribution to Australian motorsport while also raising awareness of, and support for, patients and families affected by dementia - a disease Moffat publicly disclosed he was battling earlier in the year.

The retro look suited the Gen3 Mustang perfectly and looked so impressive. It will be a fine addition to collections, with part proceeds of the sale of these models to be donated to Dementia Australia once they’re released.
