What happens to our cars when we're finished with them?

OVER the years Tickford Racing has built and raced a wide number of Falcon and Mustang Supercars.

From the team’s formation year in 2003 under its original name – Ford Performance Racing – right through the Prodrive Racing Australia era and now as Tickford Racing, we’ve run everything from AU Falcons right through to the current Gen3 S650 Mustang.

So, what do we do with our cars when they’ve finished their competitive lives in our workshop?

There’s a range of places our old cars live on, in Australia and other parts of the world, some of them tucked away from public eyes, but many of them still running around various race tracks.

For example, former FPR owner David Richards of Prodrive in the UK owns one of the BA Falcons we raced during his time in charge of the team, returned to its Glenn Seton Ford Credit livery. It sits in residence in Prodrive’s Heritage collection alongside Subaru WRC rally cars, Aston Martin Le Mans cars and many more.

Our 2013 Bathurst 1000 winning Pepsi Max Crew FG Falcon lives in Germany now and our 2014 Bathurst winner is held by a private investor in Australia.

Then there’s the cars we have built and raced that continue to be raced in other tiers of the sport.

Up until last year one of our CAT Falcons was racing in the Kumho V8 Touring Car Series in the hands of long-time racer Tony Evangelou, a category something of an unofficial tier of Supercars racing.

While we compete in the Dunlop Series with our own trio of Super2 cars in 2024, we’re racing against one of our former cars – Zane Morse races the ex-Cam Waters Monster Energy Mustang for AIM Motorsport.

We get asked a lot about our old cars and the best place to find all the answers is in the amazing book documenting all our cars produced by the team behind the V8 Sleuth website.

Supported by our team partner Ryco, the book ‘Tickford Racing: The Cars 2003-2023’ is a hardcover 400-page must-have publication that includes previously unpublished photos, insights from current and former team drivers, engineers and management and much, much more.

Limited to just 2000 individually numbered copies, it’s available now from the V8 Sleuth SuperStore here
