Why Supercars had to hobble a technically legal Mustang

The Mustang was deemed legal heading into the 2019 Supercars season, but after nine wins from the first 10 races it's been hit with a controversial aero parity adjustment. Here's how the saga has unfolded so far.

The latest era of parity unrest in Supercars didn’t actually start with the introduction of the Mustang earlier this year. It can be traced back to the ZB Commodore, which debuted at the start of the 2018 season.

While still a four-door body shape, perfectly suited to the Car of the Future control chassis, the ZB was the first Commodore racing car that was based on a) a car manufactured outside of Australia, and b) a hatchback.
