Race-spec Ford Mustang GT3 is ready to take on Europe | Rpmgo.com

The FIA GT3 racing championship offers quite a lot of thrills, not only through its races but also through the multitude of great models that are battling one another in the championship.

Now, Ford is keen to enter the fray, and with the help of a Canadian-Belgian partnership, will race a GT3-spec Mustang in the European competition. The car has been modified by the Canadians at Multimatic and will be raced by the Belgians at Marc VDS Racing Team.

As you can imagine, the pilots that will be handling the racing ‘Stangs will be Belgian Eric De Doncker and Canadian Scott Maxwell. Currently the model is being tested at Ford’s Bedfordshire track where its 5.3-liter V8 is being honed to output 560 HP.

The 2010 season of the FIA GT3 racing championship will start on May 2 at Silverstone. De Doncker and Maxwell will race the #98 Ford Mustang Marc VDS GT3, while the racers for the #99 ‘Stang have yet to be announced.
