Ford Mustang SVT GT350R Making Race Debut Next Month

An Indianapolis Motor Speedway broadcast has leaked the next-generation Ford SVT Mustang GT350R’s race debut.

During a recent broadcast, the announcers mentioned that the “Multimatic won three championships with these Mustangs … and right now what’s in development is that GT350 for next year. We should see that car on the race track this September.” According to the IMSA schedule, that means the SVT Mustang 350R will likely make its debut at the Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas. That race is scheduled to kick off on September 19 and is the only IMSA event set for next month.

The street version of the car probably won’t be available until next year, but if what the announcer said is true, the race next month will offer an early glimpse at the hot new ‘Stang as a race car.
