The latest edition of the new-look Supercar Xtra Magazine, issue #105, is on sale now in print and digital form.

Issue #105 features the Ford Mustang on the cover as we look ahead to the arrival of the Blue Oval’s pony car into Supercars in 2019, how it’s shaping up as a racer, the impact it will have on the category and other manufacturers – what could’ve been with a Nissan GT-R and the prospects of a Camaro.

Issue #105 will also be incorporated into the Watpac Townsville 400 and Coates Hire Ipswich Super Sprint event programs. In the standard issue of #105 you’ll find a new-look Motorsport Legends section in the middle of the magazine, while within a program you’ll find the event info in the beginning and middle sections.
