Ford Mustang GT3 In High Demand Ahead Of 2025 Racing Season

The Ford Mustang GT3 is one of many new S650 pony car racers to debut over the past year or so, and just this past weekend, scored a podium finish at the iconic 24 Hours of Le Mans race under the supervision of Proton Competition. As one might imagine, such a result for what is a basically brand new race car may wind up helping the Ford Mustang GT3 attract more customers, and that seems to be precisely what’s happening.

According to SportsCar365, Ford Performance global sports car manager Kevin Groot says that the outfit is currently receiving “very strong” interest from a number of customer teams who are thinking about competing in the Ford Mustang GT3 in the 2025 season. Currently, Proton Competition uses the GT3 in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, FIA World Endurance Championship, and Fanatec GT World Challenge Europe, while Multimatic campaigns two GT3s in the GTD Pro class of the WeatherTech Championship.

“So far it’s very strong [interest],” Groot said. “With GT3, it’s nice to be the first team getting their cars in a championship; I understand that. That’s the position we’re in; I’d imagine our rivals are as well. We’ve got to get those cars to the right teams to spread the Mustang around. We’ve got things in the works. Those are not my announcements to make; those are the teams’ announcements to make. We’ll leave that for them. It’s got to be quality efforts, 100 percent. But it’s not our program to run. It’s customer programs so there has to be pull from them as well. But there’s some key series that I think we need to make sure we have cars represented in.”

Groot also revealed that the Multimatic is working on building its 15th Ford Mustang GT3 racer right now, though it’s unclear how many will be competing in various events in the 2025 season at the moment. “There’s talks and I don’t know which ones are going, to go fully through and which ones won’t.” he said. “It could be two, it could be ten. I don’t think it’s ten but we’ll see.”
