ACDelco backs Ford Mustang in TA2 Muscle Car Racing Series

ACDelco backs Ford Mustang in TA2 Muscle Car Racing Series ACDelco, one of the most recognised names in the automotive parts world, has long been associated with GM and Holden vehicles when, in reality, offers an extensive range of quality parts for most makes and models.
The brand has been promoting this fact in recent years through sponsorship of drivers and their teams in multiple race series, including Toyota TGRA 86 and the 2023 Championship winning Isuzu DMax SuperUte of Aaron Borg.

In a new development, ACDelco has now expanded its most makes messaging by providing support to a TA2 Ford Mustang in this weekend's round of the Muscle Car series at Calder Park.

Young driver and ACDelco ambassador, Jarrod Hughes, (who has just finished two seasons in the Toyota 86 Series, finishing 1st in 2022 and 5th in 2023), will pilot the car in what will be the final round of the season.

TA2 is one of the fastest growing motorsport categories in Australia, with over 120 cars in the country. It’s all about fast, tough and noisy ‘turnkey’ race cars, fully controlled in all aspects on a single chassis/ Chevrolet Performance LS crate engine and gearbox combination with current Mustang, Camaro and Dodge Challenger bodies.

Today’s announcement coincides with news that, for the 2024 season and beyond, the TA2 series will source its powertrain requirements directly from GM’s Chevrolet Performance Parts division.

Jarrod Hughes is eager to get into the ACDelco Ford Mustang TA2 Muscle Car and, after showing good early test results during practice at Calder last week, go head-to-head with the series leaders.

ACDelco Parts Direct is the brand’s new online store, and the extensive catalogue is available for a wide range of automotive parts, including filters, wipers, chemicals, spark plugs, brakes and power tools.

There are items to suit vehicles as diverse as 4x4s, SUVs, passenger cars and even light trucks, with parts available for everyone to purchase regardless of whether a trade or DIY retail customer.

“ACDelco are a great brand to work with, they are well respected and trusted in the professional auto trade, and one of my jobs to help convey the message that ACDelco is a most makes, most models brand by racing non-GM cars,” said Jarrod.

The new Mustang isn’t the only ACDelco branding trackside this weekend, with an original ACDelco sign from the 90’s still visible at the Calder Park Thunderdome. “ACDelco has been associated with Holden vehicles and racing since the late 1960s” said Chris Payne General Manager Marketing ACDelco.

“Back in the day, ACDelco would never have been associated with Ford, but times have changed and the TA2 Mustang is a great way to communicate the most makes ACDelco message,” he added.
