Ford's Advanced Vehicle Technology group, is testing the current model
Australian Ford in the Georgia Windtunnel owned by Lockheed,that
Ford Leases to do its Windtunnel research.
 Australian Ford's have been at a disadvantage in the Australian Touring car
championship-.Holden the Australian GM division,has had an advantage in
getting traction in corners.
  Ford Australia has complained about this lack of parity and is getting
expertise from its US parent to help overcome the problem.
  Also John Valentine, the head of AVT said a watered down version of the
F1 Visition engine management system, will eventually be offered to
Australian Touring car teams.-
