EDWARDS TO DEBUT GEN 3 FALCON BA SUPER SIX TOURING CAR
Brent Edwards moves to Gen 3 BA Falcon in 2015 Australian Super 6 Touring Car Series with new naming rights sponsor DPS Enterprises
Super 6 Touring Car Driver Brent Edwards will debut one of the first of the new 3rd Generation Super 6 Touring Cars (formally Saloon Cars), a BA Falcon XR6 when Round 1 of the 2015 Shannons Nationals kicks off on March 27 at Sandown Raceway.
For 2015 the Australian Super 6 Touring cars will allow BA Falcons and VY Commodores to join the field. The popular Ford vs Holden series will provide even better racing with strict parity controls enforced in the new regulations for the new cars.
After what could be called a learning season in Super Sixes in 2014, hampered by mechanical issues, getting to grips with set-up and some on-track contact, Brent is looking for competing for race wins in 2015 once the new car is sorted. Brent’s production car experience with this model will help, also many of issues that hampered the previous AU Falcon now fixed in the new package, including a new control gearbox, independent rear suspension and parity that can be adjusted by a common ECU.
501 Performance is currently building and will run Edwards’ Falcon XR6, which will sport a colour scheme related to the Ford Performance Racing colour schemes for the BA/BF Series Falcon of the day (see images attached), and shares a common theme with the 501 Performance owned FPR/CAT V8 Supercar.
The Black and blue colours relate to DPS Enterprises taking up naming rights sponsorship for the team in 2015 after being an associate sponsor in 2014. DPS specialise in Corporate Property Maintenance and Plumbing projects in Victoria & NSW.
Additional support for the 2015 Season will come from Truckphones.com.au, Ballistic Mobile, Cable Source, Kendall Motor Oil & XD Design.
We welcome Cable Source as a new supporter to the team this year. Cable Source are based in Sydney & Brisbane and supply products and services for the Electrical, Data, Communication and Security type companies.
