How a battle of two US titans will grip IMSA in 2024

Car manufacturing behemoths Ford and Chevrolet will fight it out across 24 hours at Daytona with their respective, and iconic, V8 muscle cars, the Mustang and Corvette. The key players in the gestation of the new GT3 Mustang and Z06 GT3.R discuss how they came about

Two of the biggest manufacturers in the world are finally turning up at the biggest motor racing party in the world. Ford and Chevrolet, two marques with rich racing pedigrees, are belatedly pitching up in GT3 with factory programmes in the 19th season of the category. Each is arriving with an iconic V8 muscle car: Ford with the Mustang; Chevrolet with the Corvette.
