Camaro to continue in Supercars until “at least 2025” despite model retirement
Chevrolet has announced that the sixth generation Camaro will be retired at the conclusion of model year 2024, the model that made its Supercars Championship debut this season with the new Gen3 regulations.
But Supercars CEO Shane Howard says that the model will continue to represent the American brand until at least 2025.
“While today’s General Motors (GM) news out of the U.S will have an impact on our racing product, we respect and acknowledge that change is sometimes inevitable,” said Howard.
“We will continue our strong partnership with GM into the future. GM has been an integral part of our heritage and has played a significant role in shaping Supercars to become what it is today, the greatest touring car category in the world.
“For fans, the Camaro will continue to proudly represent Chevrolet Racing in the Repco Supercars Championship until at least the end of 2025.”
Chevrolet its yet to confirm plans for a potential successor to the current Camaro but states that motorsport will continue to be a part of the brand.
“Chevrolet’s products and our relationship with our customers benefit from motorsports,” said Jim Campbell, Chevrolet U.S. vice president, Performance and Motorsports.
“Our plan is to continue to compete and win at the highest levels of auto racing.”
